MINORS

The minor team suffered a one point defeat in the Inishowen final against Moville in Foden on Friday night with the scoreline Moville 2-08 Malin 0-13. The teams were level at half time at 0-06 to 0-06 but two goals early in the second half put Moville ahead and despite getting back to a point and dominating possesion for the rest of the half the team just couldn’t get the scores on the board. Credit must go to the management team of Patrick Collins, Neil McGilloway, Paul Gallagher and John McLaughlin in preparing the side and reaching the final and hopefully they can keep the team pushed on for the championship.
