August 6th, 2020 | News

Senior Men
On Sunday afternoon we seen two very entertaining games in Pearse Park against Clonoe.  One point separated the teams at half time with Clonoe leading 1-8 to 1-7.  But Galbally produced some great football, fantastic scores, attacking at pace and our defence putting in a hard shift.  A last minute goal seen our senior men seal a win by one point.  An overall brilliant performance from the whole team.  Final score Galbally 2:14 Clonoe 1:16.  A great result for our senior men and management.

Our reserve game was also an entertaining game to watch.  The reserves were trailing by 6 points at half time Galbally 0-4 Clonoe 1-7.  However the reserves came out in the second half and battled against Clonoe to end the game in a draw.  Galbally 2-10 Clonoe 2-10.

This Friday night our senior men and reserves are away to Coalisland, throw in times 6:30pm and 8pm.  All support welcome for the boys.  Good luck to our senior/reserve men and management.

Senior Ladies
Senior ladies Galbally got back to winning ways with a win by a single point in a great comeback victory away to Clonoe.  Clonoe got the first score of the game with 10 mins on the clock with both teams guilty of hitting multiple wides.  Galbally’s first score of the game was a well taken goal by full forward Ciara Kelly on 12 mins.  Clonoe responded with 2 points from play in quick succession before Claire McKeown raised the white flag for the Galbally girls.  Clonoe finished the half strong scoring 1-1 to leave the score-line Clonoe 1-4 Galbally 1-1 at half time.  Clonoe started the brighter in the second period getting the first point of the half before once again Galbally’s Ciara Kelly scored to keep the Galbally girls within touching distance.  With the game starting to open up and Clonoe grabbed a goal midway through the 2nd half to stretch their lead to 6 points but the Galbally girls replied with the next attack raising the green flag with a great goal by Celine Carberry to bring it to a 3 point game.  With 10 mins left on the clock Clonoe once again stretched their lead with a fine point to widen the margin to 4 points.  That’s as good as it got for Clonoe who failed to score for the rest of the game.  Galbally tagged on 3 quick points all in the space of 5 mins with Caítriona Kerr, Clodagh Corr and Claire McKeown on target.  With 5 mins left Galbally pushed on and kept their momentum going with Kerr adding 2 points on 28th and 29th mins to seal a great comeback win for the Galbally girls by the slimmest of margins.  Final score Clonoe 2-6 Galbally 2-7.
