Our Reserve & Senior Men played Greencastle in Pearse Park on Sunday.
Next up is Edendork in Pearse Park on Sunday 26th June.
On Saturday evening our Senior Ladies travelled to Coalisland to take on Coalisland in round 7 of the league. Galbally’s tight defensive line as per previous games contributed greatly to both halves. Up front Maeve McGlinchey and Eimear Tally scoring 3 points each, with Claire McKeown getting the last of the first half scores. The first half was a tight affair with Coalisland scoring a late goal to make it a draw 1-4 til Galbally’s 0-7
Half time : Galbally 0-7 Coalisland 1-4
The Second Half was to be Galbally’s as it continues to be the most effective periods in our games and was to be a repeat performance of that as the defence continue their impeccable play conceding 0-3 in 2nd half. Though the forwards made up for wasted chances in first half with a first attack of the second half by Justina Mulgrew which wasn’t to be her last, contributing to a second 10mins from time with Galbally’s both goals. Eimear Tally was to get the only point in the second half for the Pearse’s to complete the night! A great team performance, as the Pearse’s ladies continue their unbeaten record.
Final Score:- Galbally Pearse’s 2-8 Coalisland Fianna 1-8
