Senior Ladies

Ladies intermediate championship result: St. Michaels 4-10 Owenmore Gaels 3-9
An experienced Michaels side reel us in in the second half. A tough learning curve for our young side. Have had a great season and will pick themselves up for the remainder of the league. Great progress being made, our day will come. Good luck to Michaels in the final


Senior Men

JAC Result: Owenmore Gaels 1-14 Tourlestrane 1-9
The lads make it 2 from two in difficult conditions in Cloonacool in the second round of the Junior A Championship. A tense final 10 minutes saw Tourlestrane get to within 3 points but the lads pulled together to put two more points on the scoreboard and see out the game. They play St. Molaise Gaels in two weeks in the final group stage game with a playoff place already secured.


Minor Boys

Minor C championship result: Coolera/Strandhill 2-6 Owenmore Gaels/St.Johns 0-17.
The minors pick up their first win in the championship last Thursday. Well done lads


U14 Girls

The U14 Girls had a busy schedule this week. First up was their game against St. Michaels.
This was our first match since the feile Sheild final at the end of June and there was a little understandable rustiness in some of our play. However as the game went on the girls grew in confidence and found their rhythm again, treating us to some of the lovely football we've become accustomed to. With 19 out of the 23 player panel available on the night, everyone played their part and gave it their all when on the field. We ran out winners on the night in what was a game of goals with a scoreline of 9-10 to 8-6 against a battling St Michael's side.


Next, The U14 girls travelled to Geevagh Thursday evening for their second championship outing of the season.
A slow start with a number of wides from both sides left the scoreline tied at two points each after the first twenty minutes before Geevagh took control with two quick goals and a couple of points leaving us trailing 2-4 to 0-4 at half time. The girls fought back well in the second half with some much improved support play however we were unable to convert our chances and Geevagh took theirs leaving us trailing by even more late in the second half. A few late points and a goal brought us to a final deficit of seven points, restoring some pride on a night when we were beaten by the better team.
It just wasn't our night and we will learn from this disappointing defeat and look to improve and push on for the rest of the championship. Onwards and upwards girls


U12 Girls

Well done to our u12 girls who battled hard Friday evening against a strong Ballisodare side in terrible weather conditions to come away with the points on a score line of 17 to 13. The sides were level with 2 minutes to play and the girls showed great determination to produce the win.
