Minor Boys
Our minor boys suffered a 1 point defeat to Ardboe last night played in Pearse Park in the final game of the grade 1 league.  Both teams went point for point in the opening half with Ardboe scoring a crucial goal 1 minute before the half time whistle blew leaving the halftime score Ardboe 1-05 to Galbally 0-4.  Galbally came out the second half the strongest scoring 4 points without reply and using the strong breeze to their advantage but Ardboe worked the ball in to score their second goal and their only score of the second half to leave the score 2-5 to 0-8.  Galbally again dominated the scoring notching on another 2 points but this proved not enough as the referee blew the final whistle with the game finishing on a scoreline of Ardboe 2-5 Galbally 0.10.  Next up is the Minor Championship at home to Loughmacrory on Wednesday night (13th April) at 6.45pm.
