Connacht Cup Action
On the playing pitch the Connacht u12 and u18 Cup Quarter finals (season 2019/20) were both played away in Mayo last Saturday against Kiltimagh/Knock Utd and Manulla fc respectively. Two wins were just reward for great team performances. The u12s defeated their Mayo opponents on a 4-0 scoreline with goals courtesy of Tiernan Grealish, Jonathan Smith, David Mc Laughlin and Conor Goodwin
The U18 Connacht Cup game went to extra time with the Maree/Oranmore lads edging out Manulla fc on a 4-3 scoreline. This indeed was a thrilling game played mostly in torrential rainfall at the well appointed Mayo venue. The goalscorers were a brace each from Kody Mc Cann and Eoin Lyons in a game where there were strong performers all over the pitch notably Shane Cox, James Whelan, Liam Mc Donagh, Steven Healy and Jamie Flanagan.
It looks like the semi final is against Mervue who defeated a stubborn Bearna Na Forbacha side on a 2-1 scoreline on Sunday. The other semi is between Athenry fc and Salthill Devon.
