Intermediate football league competition
Crecora Manister versus Galbally
Crecora Pitch, Saturday 25th March 2023
In our first Intermediate game of the season we faced senior team Galbally at home on March 25th.
Galbally got off to a flying start with a point scored in the first few minutes of the game.
After a few near misses, Crecora Manister responded with a point of our own.
However, Galbally upped the tempo and scored their 1st goal in response.
As opening nerves settled, the pace of the match increased and Galbally being a senior team had seven points to their credit at half time which Crecora Manister made them earn through their increased physicality.
In the second half, Crecora Manister scored 3 points in response to 3 goals and 8 points from Galbally.
Conor Kirby scored a fantastic goal from play, well supported by his team mates.
In addition, a penalty was awarded in Crecora Manister’s favour, which we scored.
Galbally had that extra edge on the day and the match ended with Galbally as winners on a score of 4-15 to Crecora Manister’s 2-4.
Full credit to our lads on the day, they put in a great performance.
