*Our Seniors played Newry Mitchels in the quarter final of the Junior Championship in Mayobridge last Monday evening. The Fin dominated the opening 25 minutes of the game to take a 1-08 to 0-00 lead. Mitchels got a goal and a point back before half time before the Fin went on to win the game 1-13 to 2-07 to book a place in the semi finals for only the fourth time in fourteen years. The opposition in the semi final will be Kilclief and the game will be played this weekend, time and venue to be confirmed.
*Our seniors also completed their league programme with a home game against the already confirmed league winners Teconnaught. With a few players resting up injuries and another few unavailable Teconnaught recorded a facile win. Now all thoughts are on the upcoming semi final.
