St. Farnan's GAA Club notes
A win in the league still remains elusive for the intermediate team following a 0-13 to 2-9 defeat by Bunninadden on Saturday last in Templeboy. The first half was a low scoring one with the home side having a narrow edge at the break leading 5 points to 4 . Bunninadden started the second half with four points without reply, three from their full forward. St. Farnan's then enjoyed a good period scoring five points without reply to lead by two. Bunninadden got their first goal and a point. Two frees from St. Farnan's levelled matters with only four minutes remaining. Bunninadden  then found the net for the second time and held on for victory. There were good performances from the half back line of Mattie , Kevin and Darren. Martin Mulligan and the scorers played well also. The team was Eamonn Kilgannon, James Weir, John Quinn, Conor Gordon, Kevin Mc Gee, Mattie Lang, Darren Hynes, Cormac Hallinan, Martin Mulligan (0-4(2f), Gavin Connolly, Andrew Mc Munn, Mark Devaney (0-2), Niall Crean (0-1), Gavin Calpin (0-6(3f), Ryan Mc Coombe. Subs: Shane Feeney (for R. Mc Coombe), Shane Neary (for N.Crean), Darragh Gillen, Damian Kilgannon, Adrian Mc Munn, Oisin Connolly, Sean Hallinan.
The team play away to Geevagh on Saturday next.
There was no joy for the junior team in their opening game of the league as they were defeated by Drumcliffe /Rosses Point on a scoreline of 4-13 to 2-4. Drumcliffe/  Rosses Point were the fitter team and built up a strong lead in the first half with 4-7 to 1-2 advantage at half time. Their forward line made it very difficult for our defence. There was an improvement in our second half performance but the gap couldn't be overcome. The team play Coolera/ Strandhill on Sunday at 2pm in Templeboy.
