Muckalee bow out

Muckalee bowed out of the Senior Football Championship at the semi final stage against Mullinavat in Danesfort . The early exchanges saw both sides leading at different stages with points from Bryan Byrne, Tom Morrissey, David Walsh and Brian Coady . A well worked gaol from David Walsh (on as a sub for the injured Paddy Nolan) in  the 24th  minute had Muckalee in a strong position with a five point lead. Mullinavat cut into that lead with a converted penalty to leave the half time score 1-9 to 1-7. Robert Shore and Bryan Byrne added points early as Muckalee battled hard to keep the pressure on an improving Mullinavat side who had a three point lead with time running out and added another goal and two points in added time to record a convincing win. Over all a good game with both sides contributing greatly. Final score 2-16 to 1-11
