Update April 9th

There was no winner of this weeks club lotto. The numbers drawn were 12,14,22 and 28. €20 winners were Alan Cooney, Sinead O Donoghue, and Eileen Campbell. The jackpot now stands at €4,100 for next weeks draw in Wynne’s bar.

Boyle Senior Team came from thirteen points down at one stage to defeat St. Faithleach’s by two points in the Division One League on Saturday last at the Abbey Park. With the star names of the Smiths and the Murtaghs this was bound to be a high scoring encounter
The home side endured a nightmare start, conceding 2-08 in the opening nineteen minutes. Boyle’s only score in that time was a Cian McKeon point.
The game turned on its head, thereafter as Kieran Cox (0-01), Donie Smith (2-03) and McKeon reduced the Ballyleaguesides lead. 
Half Time: Boyle 2-07, St. Faithleach’s 2-10.
Whatever Boyle manager Basil Mannion said at half-time, must have worked as his side started the second half strongly.
Enda Smith (1-01); Ryan Finneran, Seamus Kane and DonieSmith (0-01 each) all scored to give Boyle the lead for the first time in the match.
Boyle’s third goal arrived halfway through the second half, as this time Dylan East found the back of the net.
Kane and Donie Smith split the uprights, before the Roscommon player completed his hat-trick as he rolled the ball beyond the St. Faithleach’s Goalkeeper. 
The away side did get a goal and a couple of points of their own, however Boyle proved too strong in the end to win on a scoreline of Boyle 5-13, St. Faithleachs 3-14. 
Next up for Boyle is the first round of the Senior Championship vs Strokestown next Sunday in Strokestown at 3.45.
Boyle Team: R. Kearney, B. Furey, D. Callaghan, Killian Cox, D. East (1-00), T. McKenna, R. Finneran (0-01), Kieran Cox (0-01), E. Smith (1-01), C. Goldrick, D. Smith (3-06), M. Hanmore, S. Kane (0-02), C. McKeon (0-02), M. O’ Donoghue.
Subs used: C. Beirne for Goldrick.

Update 26th March

It was a busy week on the pitch this weekend with many of the Boyle teams victorious.
Firstly the McGovern Directional Drilling sponsored team travelled to Enfield to take on St. Croans in the second game of the league. Boyle got off to an unconvincing start and trailed by 3 points at half time. The second half was a far more spirited performance with Boyle clawing back to going ahead towards the end of the second half. The most notable scores of the match for Boyle came through wing back Dylan East who stood confident in scoring two penalties. Congratulations to Senior league debutants Ryan Finneran, Jack Moran, and Seamus Kane.
The minor lads had a good win in the Abbey Park Sunday also. They took on Western Gaels in their second game of the Division 3 league. Two early goals in the first 10 minutes gave the lads a great platform. Boyle continued to press in the first half with a further 5 points to go in half time with 2.5 to 3 score line. Boyle carried on the second half like the first and put another 5 points on the score board. Western Gaels fought back near the end to narrow Boyle's lead but the win was never in doubt. Boyle ran out winners with a 3.10 to 1.7 scoreline. The same team play away to St. Michaels on Good Friday at 6.00pm.

On the ladies front, following two previous wins in the championship the U16 ladies lost to Elphin/Kilmore. The next match is home to Four Roads on the 16th of April.

The  U 12s are away to Elphin/Kilmore in their first league match on Monday 2nd of April.

Finally the Junior team is back in action next week with many "veterans" set to make a welcome return. This match is due to take place Saturday evening the 31st at 5.30 in the Abbey Park.
