After a minutes silence for Mairead Davey RIP Our Senior men faced Calry/St Josephs this afternoon in Markievicz Park in the quarter final of the SFC and it ended up a battle to beat the wind as well as each other with a strong breeze at the park. We went in at the midway mark ahead by 8 points to 3 but some could say the scores should have been higher for both teams. Still with all to play for in the second half Tourlestrane took their scores and pulled away and eventually ended the game playing against 13 men and came away with a ticket to the semi final stages v Tubbercurry on a scoreline of 16 points to 9.

Following this game we travelled over to Bunninadden to see the Minor lads play Ballymote/Bunninadden in their rescheduled match where once again today the wind played the game with the two teams. The host teams were much stronger and broke away with a very sound lead at the half time whistle. Not to be beaten yet our lads came out and battled hard to narrow the gap with some well placed goals and points exchanged by both the teams not willing to let go and finally going into the fourth minute of added injury time announced by Gus Chapman referee, and with Tourlestrane 4 points behind our lads were awarded a penalty which Mark Lundy scored well,  unlucky for our Minors having fought back the whistle blew and Ballymote/Bunninadden won by a point.

Friday night last we witnessed a very exciting game of football played under lights at home when our Minor girls and Drumcliff/Rosses Point finished level after swapping leads on a number of occasions throughout the match. Extra time although planned was not an option due to a power outing at the final whistle so a replay was the decided outcome in the near future. Final score Tourlestrane 3-7 DRP 2-10.

Our u16 boys were beaten by Calry/St Josephs in Scardan on Thursday night.

The club wishes to extend sympathy to the family of Annie O Hara Tullinaglug RIP who passed away during the week. May she rest in peace.
