after being down 89 points at half-time!!

Shannon Gaels and St Broughans served up a very good and exciting game of football on Saturday afternoon in Clonblogue.  St Broughans playing with a stiff breeze in the first half put Shannon Gaels backs under lots of pressure but  with Pat Camon at full back steadying the team and Conor Clancy pulling off two fine saves in the first half kept the half time score 0-5 to 0-6 in favor of St Broughans.  Shannon Gaels got off to the perfect start in the second half with a point by Sean Kenny and a great goal by Stephen Quirke inside five minutes set up Shannon Gaels for a well deserved win.  Final Score: Shannon Gaels 1-12 St Broughans 1-6.  Team: C.Clancy, D.Loonam, D.Flynn, C.Daly 0-1, D.Corbett, E.Conroy, A.Camon 0-1, J.O'Connor 0-2 (1 from a free), A.Tracey, S.Dolan 0-1, S.Kenny 0-3, S.Quirke 1-0, N.Wynne 0-2 (1 from a free), M.Corbett 0-2.  Subs:  P.Guinan for E.Conroy, D.Flynn for A.Tracey.
