Mount Sion GAA Club Notes
Under 15’sThe Under i5’s were busy this week with two games in the space of three days as they sought to emulate the heroics of the Under 16’s the previous week, first game was against De La Salle in Gracedieu who went into a strong lead in the first half which even though Sion did come back into it in the second half they were unable to retrieve the deficit and the men in red and white ran out winners. Sunday morning saw Ballygunner visit Pairc O Fainin, the Gunners got off to the perfect start with two goals but Sion fought their way back into the game with points from Jordan Roche and a monster free from keeper Bill Wall helping to make it a one point game at half time, in the second half the visitors upped gears which proved too much for the Sion lads as they finished up on the wrong end of the result again, tough luck lads best of luck in the next game.
