Owenmore Gaels GAA Club notes

Minor Boys

The clubs first competitive fixture took place in Dromard last Sunday with our U21s facing St. Pats.

U-21 B Championship Result: St. Pats 0-5 Owenmore Gaels 3-19
Well done to the lads on this win in difficult conditions.
The foundations were laid in a hardworking first half performance that left us 4 up at the short whistle having faced a gale force wind.
Our opposition had to play with 12 in the second half due to injuries and we took advantage of the wind to run out comfortable winners.
A good start for our lads, well done all

Team: Diarmuid O'Grady, Liam Gilligan, Jaime Callaghan (0-2), Roland Anderson (Roan Conneely), Cian Whiteside, Calum Tonry (1-0), James Duffy (0-1) (Aaron Walsh (0-1)), Ross Trill, Oisin Geraghty (0-2), Kevin Healy (2-2, 1F), Gary Anderson (0-4), Connall O'Dwyer, Ryan Philips (0-7, 3F)
