Semi final heartbreak

Sixmilebridge 3-17
Newmarket-on-Fergus 2-18
Venue: Cusack Park

The seniors travelled to Cusack park to face neighbours Sixmilebridge, the game played out in what was expected, a dramatic end to end game. On the day it was not to be for this dedicated bunch who fought some exciting battles throughout the championship, with yesterdays game topping them all. They left everything on the field with the support behind them every step of the way, and if not in attendance were urging them on listening online or following tweets from as far away as Arizona.

Opportunities came our way for goal chances, decisions given that left people puzzled but on the day luck played its part and it was not on our side. This team have come so far in a year, this time last year they fought against relegation in a replay v’s Kilmaley and showed yesterday the play they can achieve. They will be back in 2018 to fight again for Canon!

If the county final between Clooney Quin and Sixmiebridge is anywhere near yesterdays game, we are in for a cracker.
