Gaels Juniors Fall At Final Hurdle
Galtee Gaels 0-5 Banogue 2-09
The South Junior League final played in Hospital on Tuesday evening last turned out to be an action replay of the sides earlier meeting in the league stages of the competition. Banogue managed to get to a hold on the game from the beginning but because of their hard work and tenacious play, Gaels refused to be put away until late Banogue goals finally finished them off.
The first half was a tight affair with Banogue putting the Gaels defence under a lot of pressure but they squandered a number of chance before finally opening the scoring. Niall O’Mahony got Gaels off the mark soon after with a fine long range free and Banogue followed with the next three points, two from placed balls. The remainder of the half was a frustrating one with come creative refereeing not helping the game as a spectacle. It took until just before the half time whistle for Diarmud Walsh to get Gales second leaving them 0-4 to 0-2 behind at the break.
Banogue again made the better start to the half and reeled off three
points in a row to put them in a very strong position before Gaels finally
managed to push forward and dominate the game for a period.
