GAA ACTION

The In­ter­me­di­ate Cham­pi­onship started last Satur­day night for Kil­macanogue and they got a great win on a 2-09 to 1-08 score­line. Mark Kings troops got off to a flier with Sam O’Cal­laghan slot­ting over a point fol­lowed by a Niall Mel­don point and then Kevin Red­den hit­ting the net and they were 1-05 up be­fore An­nacurra reg­is­tered their first score. Sam O’Cal­laghan was on fire and he scored a great goal be­fore the break to leave it 2-06 to 04 points at the half­time in­ter­val. Points were traded equally in the sec­ond half and a late An­nacurra goal re­duced the margin to four points but Kil­macanogue held out for a great start to the cham­pi­onship held in Aughrim. Next up is Kil­macanogue v Bal­ly­manus on Satur­day, July 20, with Laragh, Ballinacor and Coolkenno all in Group One op­po­si­tion over the com­ing weeks. Well done, lads.
