Weekly PRO Notes

posted 14 Nov 2011, 10:57 by Tourlestrane GAA PRO
Unfortunately the curtain came down on our season on Sunday last when we lost out to a powerful and well drilled St Brigids team. Our lads got off to a great start with a flurry of scores as a result of intense pressing in every position, gradually Brigids came back into the game to tie up at 4 points apiece only for our lads to contain them and grab the last score of the half to lead at half time 5 points to 4. Brigid's showed their intention with a burst of scores after the break to take the lead for the first time which they never relinquished and as we chased the game gaps opened up allowing their big name players come into the game but our lads battled on but the cuter Brigids team never let us back in to finish out winners by 0-16 to 0-10. It was a great effort by our lads but we just came up short but need to use this experience to build on if we are to compete for Connacht honours. Once again our supporters turned out in great numbers and colour to cheer our lads on and thanks to you all. Also thanks to our local business' who advertised in the programme and all the programme sellers on the day as well as County Board Administrator fro his great help in putting the programme together.
It wasn't all bad news for our teams last week as our u14 girls captured the county shield with a great win over Owenmore Gaels in their Impressive new grounds on Bank Holiday Monday. A five goal onslaught by our forwards combined with tigerish defending by our backs, and a dominant midfield of Anna Corcoran and Sarah Brennan laid the foundations for this great win. Our goalkeeper Danielle Gallagher was a safe pair of hands behind the defence and her brilliant double save from a well struck penalty was the highlight of the game, Indeed the subs that came on added impetus too. Congratulation's to the whole squad and their mentors Dermot Mooney, Colm Corcoran, Katie Walsh and Claire Colleran. despite the game being played in Collooney our supporters travelled in great numbers.
