SENIOR FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP: Mountcollins played Ballylanders in round 4 of the Senior Football Championship in Feanagh on Sunday evening last. Mountcollins came out of the blocks all guns blazing and took their early chances and lead at half time by five points to three. Mountcollins continued their good scoring in the second half and after a well taken penalty by Pa Delee seemed to be cruising to victory with a lead of 1-6 to 3pts with 15 minutes to go. However it wasn’t to be as Ballylanders hit back with two goals in quick concessions. Mountcollins tried in vain to battle back but Ballylanders ran out winners on a score line of 2-9 to 1-9. Mountcollins now face Abbeyfeale in the final round where a win is a must.
