Mount Sion GAA Club Notes
Minor HurlingThe Minors took on Roanmore in the club on Tuesday night last knowing that a win was necessary if they were to make any progress at this level, Roanmore started stronger going three points ahead before Mikey Daykin started showing the form that has seen him burst onto the senior team this year knocking over points and making the breakthrough with Sion’s first goal , Ben Flanagan and Evan McGrath also contributed points to put Sion two points ahead going into the break 1-09 to 1-07 .The second half was more of the same with the visitors starting strongly and threatening to build up a lead before the game swung in Sion’s favour once more with four points in a row from Daykin, Andy Doherty and James Ogundare to finish out the game strongly to gain their first victory of the campaign on a score of 1-17 to 1-13, well done lads lets keep up the momentum for the game against Clonea on Thursday night.
Under 13’sIt was another good result for the Under 13’s as they beat De La Salle in the club on Thursday last on a scoreline of 2-11 to 1-06, well done lads keep up the good work !
