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.
