Galbally are through to the semi finals of the Ulster Intermediate championship after a comfortable 7-12 to 1-11 win over Derry champions Glenullin at Celtic Park on Sunday afternoon.
The Pearses were quickly into their stride and once Conor Donaghy hit the net from a fifth minute penalty the writing was on the wall for Glenullin.
Galbally dominated the first half adding a further two goals and four points to reach the break leading 3-6 to 0-5. Ronan Nugent hit his team’s second goal after ten minutes while Conor Donaghy struckjust before the break for their third.
Chrissy Morris, Conor Quinn, Cormac Donnelly and Liam Rafferty imposed themselves on the game from the throw in turning the ball over numerous times and causing all sorts of problems for Glenullin. Up front Daniel Kerr, Sean Wylie, Barry Carberry and Sean Murphy were a constant source of trouble for their opponents’ defence. Their pace and movement had the Derry champions at sixes and sevens throughout what was a difficult afternoon for their team.
The Derry champions improved after the break but missed several great chances to add to their tally. Galbally weathered that temporary storm, made several changes to their team while adding four superb second half goals to run out comfortable 7-12 to 1-11 winners. Their second half goals came from Barry Carberry, Daniel Kerr (2) and Liam Rafferty with their last two goals coming deep in injury time.
The Pearses can mow look forward to a semi final clash with Donegal champions Dungloe
