Men’s Football:

Senior Team:

The senior team got a hard earned draw against St.Faithleachs in the 2nd round of the Senior championship on Sunday evening last. In a very blustery Hyde park Western Gaels won the toss and played with the strong wind in the 1st half building up a 0-07 to 0-01 lead at the break thanks to some good points from Cathal Cregg and Seanie McDermott.

Faithleachs had a very strong start to the 2nd half and the sides were level after 45mins thanks to a goal and some long range points from the the Ballyleague men. The Gaels steadied the ship and got 2 well worked scores from Finbarr Cregg and Derek Moran tpo  put us 2 pts to the good again but then we conceded an own goal when the ball deflected in off a Gaels player into the empty net to put Faithleachs a point to the good with 5 mins left. To their the Gaels never gave up and battled back at the death with a brilliant free into a very stiff wind by Derek Moran to grab a share of the points.

Final Scoreline: Western Gaels 0-11 St.Faithleachs 2-05.

Team: A Hardiman, S MacDermott(0-1), B Morahan, B Cafferkey, E Ryan, C Cafferkey, B Creighton, N Murray, C Cregg(0-4), O Ward, F Cregg(0-2), C Casserly, D Moran(0-4f), T Gill, N Higgins. Subs: U Mulleady, T Devine
