A very busy weekend for community based soccer club kindly sponsored by The Galway Clinic.
The adult Premier A side continued their recent good form and came from 2-0 down at half time to defeat Galway Hibernians 3-2 to move into third position. A brace from Chris O Dowd including a penalty and a strike from Alan Greene gave the lads a valuable three points. Next week the sides meet again in Bohermore, this time in the FAI Junior Cup. Excellent work being done by the management team of Don O Riordan, Noel Greaney and Mark Tully.
Hughie O'Neills adult B side who ply their trade in Division three moved to the top of the table after a convincing home win against Corofin Utd with Oisin Lyons getting three, Jason Spellman a brace and Colin Thornton and Dara Murphy adding to the tally.
The u17/u18 Premier side made it two wins from two when they defeated a gamely Colga side on a 5-3 scoreline. Leading comfortably the Maree/Oranmore lads let Colga back into it at 3-0 but a strong finish secured victory.
The goals arrived from a brace from Eoin Lyons with further goals from Ciaran Black, Caden Okuguni and Gavin Smyth. A disciplined side managed by Mark Herrick, Martin Horgan and Enda Cox, the lads are working hard to improve as the season progresses.
The u12 girls had a fine 4-2 win against Barna/Furbo Utd B side with goals coming from Holly Conboy (3) and an excellent goal from Sarah Mc Cluskey.
