Mullinavat retain title


Mullinavat retained the Senior Football title after a win against Muckalee.The game was played before a good attendance in sunny Bennettsbridge. It was the challengers first appearance in the final since 2015. Tom Breen opened the scoring but it was Mullinavat who settled the better with an early goal and points, the reply was a goal from Ollie Walsh with the assist from Sean Maher, and a  point from Tom Morrissey with a quarter of the game elapsed. From this to break a converted penalty to the champions, and two black cards to the Muckalee defenders had an undue impact on the game. Two further scores from Brian Coady and Tom Breen left the score at the break 2-5 to 1-4 in favour of Mullinavat. The second half was dominated mostly by Mullinavat, despite this Muckalee kept on trying and added a goal from Mick Morrissey with the assist from John Maher and points for Bryan Byrne, Ollie Walsh, John Maher and Colin McGrath. Muckalee had five newcomers introduced by the managment this year,well done to the men from the south on winning the double in fine style. Final score 5-11 to 2-9.

Juniors miss out


The Junior Footballers had their outing first of 2018 against Graigue Ballycallan. The game was played as part of a double header at MW Hire Center Dunmore , first up was Railyard and Lisdowney, with Lisdowney advancing to the final after a convincing win. Muckalee and Graigue Ballycallan was a much closer contest which was decided after extra time . Despite the cold  and sleathy showers they sides had to be admired for footballing efforts throughout the 80 plus minutes . Muckalee started well and were leading at half time 2-7 to 1-1, with the aid of the elements. Graigue dominated the second half to level the score at the end of normal time 2-8 to 3-5.  In the first ten minutes  of extra Muckalee added four points to a goal for Ballycallan, two tired sides still had ten minutes and with time running out it looked like Muckalee would contest the final  but a last gasp attack for Graigue ended with a  goal and victory, score 5-5 to 2-13.
