GRATTAN ÓG GAA
We played our second game in the Junior championship on Thursday last at home in Dunbeggan Park v Killashee , played in very soft underfoot conditions throughout it was a game where we struggled at times to get the upper hand , once we did there was no looking back with some excellent scores throughout particularly from the boot of Reuben Murray 0-4 (2f) who has been in superb form of late, our goal coming from the hard working Kevin Jones who finished well to the net, nine points from play isn’t a bad return and each one came from great team work , also to get on the score sheet along with Reuben & Kevin were Gary Gilchrist 0-2; Niall Nerney 0-1; Stephen Farrell 0-1; Jack Finn 0-1; James Finn 0-1; Clayton Finn 0-1, well done to all on a great effort and win that puts us into the quarter final where at the time of writing a date has yet to be confirmed, bigger challenges lie ahead which we are well capable of taking on and hopefully by the time our quarter final came comes around we might be allowed some of our loyal supporters to view our games, Final Score : Grattan Óg 1-12 Killashee 1-03,
Next up and with a quick turnaround we played Clonguish away in the Div. 3 league on the following Sunday last, this was a very entertaining game with a well organised Clonguish outfit who were hard to break down at times , some excellent scores once again from play 12 in total were on view , we lead at the break 1-12 to 0-7, clonguish really pushed us right to the end but we weathered the storm , Clayton Finn scoring four excellent points in the second half period , it was good to see John Hand chipping in with a point also in the second half as he is returns from injury, others to get on the score sheet on the day were Reuben Murray 1-08 (5f) ; James Moran 0-1; Kevin Jones 0-1; Gary Gilchrist 0-1; Stephen Farrell 0-1, in the end it was a well merited win and one which will hold us in good stead going forward on the rest of our journey in our quest for some silverware. Grattan Óg 1-17 Clonguish 0-16.
