County Championship: Mountcollins senior footballers missed a wonderful opportunity of winning the opening round of the county senior football championship on Friday evening. The game played in Feenagh saw the local side miss several scoring chances in both halves which left Galbally winners by 1-11 to 2-5.
The winners led at the brake by 1-6 to 1-2 as Mountcollins gave their opponents too much room and allowed their players dictate the early pace of the game. Mountcollins played great football in the second half and but for poor finishing could have the game wrapped up by the final whistle. In the next round Mountcollins will play county champions Drom/Broadford.Best for the local side on Friday evening were Jeremiah Moroney, John j O Connell, Stephen Cahill, Bernard McCarthy, Pat O Connor, Denis Dillane, Sean lyons and James Brouder.
The Mountcollins line out was, Seamus Murphy, Jeremiah Moroney, Con Begley, Timmy Walsh, John O Connell, Bernard McCarthy, Stephen Cahill, Pat O Connor, Denis Dillane, Connor Moroney, Tom McCarthy, Pa Delee, Eoin Moroney, James Brouder, Sean Lyons. Subs, Batt Dillane, Mike Curtin, Brian Lenihan, Mathew Brouder, DJ Gleeson, Eric O Connor, Jamie Lenihan, William Finnegan, Diarmuid Gleeson, Brian McCarthy, Michael Lenihan.
