Mount Sion GAA Club Notes
Cnoc Sion 1-17
Fourmilewater 0-16The Seniors had their first outing in a number of weeks as they made the trip to the Nire Valley to take on Fourmilewater in the Senior League/Sargent Cup, boosted by the return of a number of players from injury Sion made the brighter start to the game with points from the busy Owen Whelan , Martin F O’Neill, Evan Curran and Sean Ryan giving a three point cushion at the break, half time score Cnoc Sion 0-09 Fourmilewater 0-06. After the restart it was all Sion and the hard work in front of goal was rewarded when Ian Galgey broke free to bury the ball to the back of the net giving a six point lead to the Monastery men , as the half wore on Fourmilewater tried to stage a comeback but the Sion backs held firm and with the experienced forwards hitting form the result was never in doubt , final score Cnoc Sion 1-17 Fourmilewater 0-16.
