Conor Caden and Liam Noone exchanged early in the new half Conor Caden again tacked on two points and Stephen O’Malley added another point after good approach work by John Garrett and Jonathan O’Boyle.  Tom Clarke Aidan Macken and Richie Kilkenny each raised white flags in between those Davitts scores Conor Caden reduced the Davitts lead to two points. With time running out Crossmolina threw caution to the wind with a high ball into the goal mouth area which was grabbed by Mark Leonard who found the in rushing Nigel Caden who picked his spot past a helpless David Mitchell and a few defenders to give his side a one point win 1 -10 to 1 -9 after a very entertaining game played in poor condition

Crossmolina Win Corofin Tournament. 

On Saturday 24th September we returned to home of the current all Ireland club champions Corofin to play in their prestigious Tournament

We were welcomed back as defending champions having seen off the host club in the semi final last year and St Marys Carrick On Shannon in the final

We had 3 teams involved on the day in the cup, the plate, and the shield. We had 2 teams that were 11 aside and 1 team of 9. The groups were the same for all teams we all faced St Marys of Carrick-on-Shannon first followed by the might of Kilmacud Crokes Dublin and our last game of the round robin was against St Marys Sligo

The difficulty in the challenge for us was competing against clubs with a much larger number of players to choose from we needed players from our U10 squad to help with the 3rd team. Most teams there had lads that were physically much bigger than our lads but that did nothing to deter our lads from giving their all. We were delighted with the efforts of all and the never say die attitude of all players when we behind in games

One team progressed to the semi final of the cup Competition and were once again pitted against the might of Corofin as they had come 2nd in their group. Templeouge Synge Street Dublin were the winners of that group while a very gallant Claremorris finished 3rd and the 4th team in that group were the maroon and white of Doora Barefield from Clare

We overcame Corofin in a great battle to reach the final while Kilmacud emerged victorious in the Dublin derby. The toll of the hard days football was beginning to tell and our lads were out on their feet we started well and Built up a half time lead but began to falter new energy arrived in the form of 2 lads from team 2 (sanctioned by Corofin ) and that was all we needed to see us emerge as 1 point victors

County Minor Semi-Final.

Castlebar Mitchels 6 – 8 McHale/ Rovers 4 – 12

Castlebar Mitchell’s enjoyed a much greater return on the score board from the possession in the opening half with the direct running of scorer in chief Niamh Hughes who scored 3-4 of her sides total of 4 -7 in the opening half. McHale/Rovers full forward Sinead Walsh was her sides main threat scoring 2-1 Ailish Keane Caomihe Walsh Lisa Lavelle and Amy Blake scoring the points for McHale/Rovers who were denied a couple of goals chances with great defending by the Mitchell’s defence when they were playing into a stiff breeze. McHale/Rovers were more of threat in front of goal in the second half and came right back into contest and with Sinead Walsh grabbing a goal and six points and Emma Murray also added a point Niamh Hughes was Mitchell’s only scorer in the Second half with 2-1 to her credit and when Ailish Keane cracked home McHale/Rovers goal in the 56th minuet only two points separated the sides. The Mitchell’s defence stood firm to denied their visitors any chance of the goal they needed to win this high scoring and very entertaining County Division 2 League semi-final
