ABP sponsored Ferrybank GAA Weekly Notes

Our Under 16 hurlers got back to winning ways last Wednesday night with a 4-12 to 1-13 win over Sacred Heart in Poleberry. The hero on the night was Shane Oates who scored 3-01, with Glen Power scoring the other goal. Points from Charlie McLoughlin, Ryan Tierney, Luke Butler, Jack Keogh-Moran and Nathon Carton added to the scoreboard.
This was a good overall performance from the team, and they can look forward now with confidence to the next game, which is scheduled to take place on Wednesday August 9th, home to Cois Bhride at 7pm.

Our Under 12 hurlers made the trip last Friday to Semple Stadium, Thurles to play three matches. The lads had a super day winning two of them, and going down by two points in the third game. This was a great experience for the players and they enjoyed the day throughout. Thanks to all the helpers who made it special.

Well done to the combined Ferrybank/Butlerstown Camogie team that defeated Brickey Rangers in the shield semi-final in Butlerstown last Saturday afternoon on a scoreline of 3-01 to 0-04. The combined side now play Abbeyside in the final, which is scheduled to take place on Saturday August 12th.

Ferrybank/Erin’s Own are back in Championship action this coming Wednesday night August 2nd at 7:30pm with an away match against Roanmore. Having won their opening game, the combined side will be anxious to maintain their unbeaten run and your support will be welcomed.

The Under 11 Footballers are back in action this coming Friday night August 4th at 6:30pm, with a home game against Gaultier.

Our Junior Footballers qualified for the semi-final of the John J Murphy sponsored competition with a 1-18 to 2-04 win over Mount Sion in Ferrybank last Friday night. With both sides needing to win this game, Mount Sion made an excellent start to the game, with a goal in the opening two minutes.
However, Ferrybank came back in impressive fashion with points from Graham Coady, Sam Lawless and John Ahern. Moments later, Philly Blake received a pass from Graham Coady and slotted the ball into the net. Ferrybank kept the pressure up, and played some impressive football, and were rewarded with further points from Tommy Carew, Greg Murphy, Sam, Marty Freeman and Graham. By half-time the lads had built up a 1-11 to 1-2 lead.
Mount Sion came more into it in the second-half, and were unlucky with a number of scoring chances. However, they did take a goal chance that came their way to reduce the gap to six points midway through the half, but Philly, Greg and Graham steadied the ship with points
With the game end to end, Ferrybank had a number of goal chances to kill the game, but didn’t take them. John Ahern and Sam finished the scoring on the night. This was a good performance from the team, scoring some excellent points, and working as a team, playing some good football at times.
