Mount Sion GAA Club Notes
Cnoc Sion 1-16
De La Salle 5-17It was a disappointing day in Walsh Park on Sunday last for the Seniors as they bowed out of the Championship against De La Salle at the quarter final stage, the first half was an even affair with both sides trading points and though DLS were first to raise the green flag Sion plugged away with Austin Gleeson putting over three sideline cuts in a row to leave a two point gap between the sides at the break, half time time score Cnoc Sion 0-08 De La Salle 1-07, the second half saw DLS take an unassailable lead when they powered in three goals with no reply to effectively end the game as a contest, Sion kept working away and a late penalty goal from Gleeson proved to be a consolation as it was too late to mount a comeback, final score Cnoc Sion 1-16 De La Salle 5-17, tough luck to John and his selectors and their young team many of whom made their Championship debuts this year and will be back ready to go next year.
