Loughinisland GAC Notes For 5 October 2014

dn_screenFollowing on from the success of last year’s drama production of “Don’t Tell The Wife” we now hope to put on another production by end of November. For anyone who may be interested in taking part in this production, be it in a front or back stage role, please go to the club’s facebook page for further information writes Peter Fitzpatrick. 

Strictly Come Dancing is being held again in the club. In a change of format we are now looking for couples to come forward and dance in the event. Also a Junior Strictly will be held at beginning of March so we are looking for 10 to 16 year olds who want to take part. Names for both to any committee member.

Loughinisland U12.5s travelled to Carryduff on Sunday morning to bag another two crucial points in their 2014 Championship campaign. The blues remain unbeaten and top their group with only one group game remaining against Bryansford before the places for the final are decided. The young blues dominated the midfield battle from the start winning a text book throw-in straight out of the GAA coaching handbook when Brandon Boyd palmed the ball into his partner Oran Bolton’s arms to create an impressive clinical opening score. Conor O’Neill was a rock as always between the sticks. He was well guarded by his full back line of Stefan Ginesi, Peter Kearney and Chris Allen who combined well to keep Carryduff scores to a minimum. Damian McDowell and Odhran Barlow showed great pace in attacking the ball to cut off many forward passes from Carryduff to set up some great counterattacking moves using their trademark running game. The forward line was on fire for parts of the game and were unlucky on a few occasions not to score more with three shots coming off the woodwork. Brian Kennedy showed real class taking 5 excellent points using both feet from many difficult angles. Jamie Boyd got two points on the Board for the blues with one coming from a very tight angle on the right wing late in the game to keep the Carryduff heads down. The full forward line of Dylan Owens, Oisin Savage and Shea O’Toole tormented their markers throughout the game taking some great scores from play. Lotto: 2, 8, 10, 23. 3 Numbers: Julie Digney, Loughview Cottages; James Trainor, Saul St; Jim Toman, Loughinisland Rd.; Darren McMullan, Seaforde. Next Week’s Jackpot: £3850.]]>
