Galbally’s chances of making of making it through to the play off stages of the Feile in Cork ended this morning when they were beaten by a very good Naomh Comcille side from County Meath. The final score was 1-8 to 1-2 in favour of the Meath lads with Mark Quinn getting the Galbally goal. The Pearses youngsters have one final game left to play against another Cork side St Finbarrs later this afternoon and we will bring you news of that one as soon as it ends.
Galbally Pearses under 14 side came back from five points down at half time in their opening game of the 2011 Feile to defeat hosts Nemo Rangers 0-11 to 2-4. The Cork side had made the better start but once the Pearses got to grips with them they not only dominated the play but held their very illustrious opponents scoreless in the second half. Adam Arthurs, John Hanna, Patrick Quinn, Mark Quinn and Daniel Kerr were all on target for scores with young Kerr getting the winner for his side.
Next up were the Cork champions and favourites for the tournament Carrigaline and although the Tyrone lads put up a superb display they lost out 3-5 to 0-8. Patrick and Mark Quinn and Adam Arthurs got among the scorers for the Pearses in an excellent all round team performance which saw them strike the post at a crucial stage when a goal would have made such a difference to the final outcome. Galbally’s chances of making the semi finals seemed to have disappeared after this defeat but the news improved for them when Carrigaline lost in their next game against Meath champions Naomh Colmcille. Galbally face the Meath side tomorrow morning knowing that a convincing win against them would re-ignite the possibility of qualifying for the semi finals. Our best wishes go with them for the remainder of the tournament.
