SENIOR FOOTBALL

The senior footballers put in a great fight in the first round of the senior championship against Ballyporeen last Saturday but ultimately came up just short. They came out of the blocks very quickily and raced into a 4 point lead but we pegged back and Ballyporeen led by 2 at half time. Ballyporeen strated the second half strongly and got a goal to extend their lead to 7 points but it was all Upperchurch from there as they reeled off 6 unanswered points. Ultimately it was not to be enough as they lost by 1 and will rue a number of wides that could have gained the victory. The next round is against Cahir on Wed May 24th at 7:30pm in Dundrum.

SENIOR HURLING
The next round of the county championship is set for 7:30pm on Sun May 28th in Dolla against Kiladangan. A victory here would get us right back into the hunt. The quarter final of the Cahill cup against JK Brackens is the more immediate concern and will be played next Tuesday 16th at 7:30pm in Drombane.

JUNIOR HURLING
Our junior hurlers were defeated by Holycross in the mid junior league last Sunday. The next round is fixed for tomorrow(Saturday) at 7:30pm in Littleton against Moycarkey-Borris.

MINOR FOOTBALL
Last Friday the minor footballers played out a draw in the mid semi final against the combo of Moyne-Templetouhy and Thurles Gaels – 1-17 to 2-14. The replay is scheduled for next Monday at 7pm in Drombane. Please support if you can.

JUVENILE FOOTBALL
Congratulations to both the under 12 and under 14 footballers who won their respective mid finals last week, the u12s beat Holycross and the u16s defeated JK Brackens. This is in addition to the under 14s winning the mid peil title earlier this year. The under 12s play their county semi final against Ballina tomorrow. Best of luck to them.
