Our playing year started last weekend with mixed results. Our senior reserve team took on Mostrim in Emmet Park on Saturday evening and following a very tight game, came away with a share of the spoils, on a score of 1-9 each with John Kiernan finding the net for Killoe. On Sunday morning our junior reserve team faced a very strong Young Grattan’s team and despite a good first half performance, we suffered a heavy defeat. Both teams have games next weekend with our reserve 1 team away to Longford Slashers on Saturday evening at 7pm while our junior reserve team face a tough game away to Legan on Sunday at 2pm.
Unfortunately our senior Scor instrumental team made up of Dervla Murphy, Mary Walsh, Sean Mulroy, Jim McLoughlin and Gerry McKenna bowed out at the semi final stage in the Leinster competition on Sunday last in Mullingar. Hard Luck to all involved.
Well done to the Longford senior and under 21 teams on their wins last weekend.
