Fethard St Mogue’s GAA

The Fethard St Mogue’s intermediate football team played Clongeen in Horeswood last Wednesday evening. The first half was a keenly contested and entertaining affair which ended eight points apiece although Fethard did have a number of goal chances which they failed to convert. Jake Molloy got the first point of the second half before Adam Swan got through for a Fethard goal. John Tubritt and Bryan Power had goal shots saved immediately afterwards but Fethard did pull six points clear with 10 minutes to go. Clongeen fought back strongly and a goal with five minutes to go tied up the scores yet again. As Clongeen looked for the winning score Richard Waters and John Tubritt struck for points deep in injury to secure the win on a 1-16 to 1-14 scoreline. They have now secured a place in the quarter finals in advance of their final game against Bannow next Sunday.

The Junior B footballers are away to St James last Saturday. They found scoring difficult in the first half as the trailed by six points to two at the break. Ramsgrange struck for an early goal in the second half which put a breathing space between the teams. Ramsgrange continued to add to their tally which holding Fethard scoreless till near the end, Fethard did get three late points and they also got a chance to give game time to some of the younger members of the panel as they lost out on a 2-12 to 0-6 scoreline.
