Well done to our first year boys who have won the Connacht D Championship this year. The team has worked hard all year and got their reward in the final. Having played against a breeze in the first half they went in at half time 2-1 to 1-3 ahead. They continued this form in the second half and pushed on to win the match comfortably. Congratulations to all involved including their management of Mr. Conroy and Mr. Curtin.

Well done to our 1st year boys team who reached the Connacht Championship final by beating a strong Garbally team on a final scoreline of 3-12 to 0-7.

This was a great team performance from the boys in a match that they recieved two harsh black cards for key players as well as loosing inspirational goalkeeper Patrick Fitzmaurice just before half time due to a knee injury. The teams had gone in at half time 5 points each after GCS has played against a strong breeze. Indeed, we could have gone in with a few goals to add to the 5 points but for 3 near misses in the space of 5 minutes before the whistle.

The team came out in the second half galvanised to remain solid at the back and add scores to the scoreboard. Powered on by Conor Raftery, Luke Divilly, Brian McDermott and Ryan Duffy they gradually started to take control. Goals from Conor and Brain made it very hard for Garbally to see a way back into the match. The defence was solid being commanded by Ordhan Geraghty and with Daniel Coyne dropped back to block it up even more it made it very hard to break us down. A couragous and intelligent display of football from Joe Kelly snuffed out a lot of their attacks and set up a lot of ours.

Credit goes to all the players and the subs who worked together to get the result. This was the third meeting of these sides this year. GCS had drawn and lost the previous two but not this one. They march on to the Connacht Final. We wish a speedy recovery to Patrick Fitzmaurice and hope the team do the business in the final.

Glenamaddy CS Vs Dunmore CS

Our 1st year boys kick-started their first year boys division C league on Friday the 10th of October with a comprehensive victory over Dunmore Community School. The match was played in good spirits with both teams giving their all. Glenamaddy C.S got off to the best possible start with 1-1 inside the opening minute from our midfielders Brian McDermott and Conor Raftery. That quickly settled the team and within a few minutes we had found our rhythm and tagged on a few more scores courtesy of Gerard smith, Ryan Duffy Brian McDermott and Conor Raftery. With McDermott and Raftery dominant in midfield and our half back line pushing forward at every available moment Dunmore struggled to get a foothold in the game and it took almost twenty minutes before they registered their first points. Just after half time Glenamaddy got a few quick-fire goals and the game was then over as a contest with us holding a lead of 7-9 to 5 points. The last twenty minutes Glenamaddy tagged on a few more score and eventually we ran out commanding winners on a score line of 13-14 to 5 points. The score line was a harsh and unfair reflection on Dunmore Community School who worked hard for the duration of the match match and never dropped their heads.  Patrick Fitzmaurice had a fine game in Goal, he dealt superbly with any goal efforts Dunmore had. Glenamaddy had the security of Odhran Geraghty at full back who read and snuffed out many of Dunmore’s attacks. He was duly supported by Adrian Divilly and Anthony King either side. Daniel Coyne held the centre back position and started off many of our excellent moves by delivering high quality ball into the forward line. Cian Carton and Luke Divilly had excellent games also, pushing forward and attacking at every possible moment. Brian McDermott and Conor Raftery dominated the midfield and their tireless work and skill were the foundations on which many of our scores came from. In the half forward line, Joe Kelly, Niall Burke and Rory McDermott worked superbly together. In the full forward line Ryan Duffy and Gerard Smyth were clinical finishers with their defenders having no response to their skill, pace and finishing. Alex Higgins, James Flynn, Jack Fahy all came of the bench in the second half and made some telling contributions. With round 1 of the league now over the boys will be looking forward to round 2 and will hoping to prove this performance was not a flash in the pan. Training continues as normal after school Wednesday.
