Senior Game in Kiltubrid
The Senior team took on Kiltubrid on Sunday in Kiltubrid. They put in a good performance against the home side and came away with a three point victory. Final score was Kiltubrid 0-9 Melvin Gaels 0-12.
The game was played on an excellent surface but a strong gale made conditions difficult at times. The Gaels had the better of the first and with wind advantage went into the break leading 0-6 to 0-1.
Kiltubrid had the wind behind them in the second half and put the Gaels under more pressure, but the Gaels held out for a deserved victory in the end.
The Gaels team and scorers was Gareth Phelan , Blaine Mulligan, James Phelan(0-1), Joe Mc Gowan, Colm Mc Gowan, Fabian Mc Morrow, Paul Brennan, Emyln Mulligan (0-7), Christopher Branley(0-1), Colin Regan, Conor Sheridan (0-1) , Patrick Hill, James Bredin, David Mc Sharry, and Daniel Branley (0-1)

Junior Game v Kiltubrid
The juniors took on Kiltubrid in the second of the double header on Sunday but were beaten by the home side on a scoreline of 3-6 to 0-9. The Gaels had the wind behind them in the first half but did not take their chances. It was the home side who took theirs much better and scored three goals in quick succession to leave the Gaels in big trouble at the break, trailing by seven points.
In the second half the Gaels coped much better and had chances to draw close but it was Kiltubrid who finished worthy winners in the end.
Well done to all the lads who played had to play two games in a row due to a number of players being unavailable for one reason or another.
Melvin Gaels Club would like to extend sympathy to the family of George O Toole, ex County Chairman whose death occurred last week.
May He Rest in Peace.
