Mount Sion GAA Club Notes
Junior FootballThe Junior footballers were back in action on Friday night last against Ferrybank in the club trying for their first win of the campaign, Sion netted twice in the first half the pick of which was a Ricky Freeman effort from Owen Whelan’s precision placed ball which he gratefully accepted, points from Richie Roche helped keep it a two point game at the break, in the second half though the visitors gained control and as Sion’s legs tired they put the game well out of reach to run out comfortable winners , tough luck to these lads who must be commended for turning up and giving their all to help keep football going in the club.
Minor HurlingThe Minors travelled to Lismore on Tuesday night last with a depleted squad and despite the many absentees put up a credible performance against the hosts just losing out on a scoreline of 0-22 to 2-12, there is no game until Wednesday week when they take on Dungarvan in the club with hopefully a full compliment of players.
Deise DrawJuly’s Deise Draw took place in BallyMacarbary on Friday night last and unfortunately we had no winners.This is one of the main fundraisers for the club and we would encourage as many members and their families as possible to participate, as well as helping your club you are also in a great draw with many good prizes on offer.
