Games at the Weekend
On Saturday evening the first team travel to Ballinamore for the second round game against Mohill. This will be another tough encounter. Throw in time for this game is 7.30pm.
On Sunday at 12 noon the second team are once again in Drumkeerin where they take on Aughnasheelin.
Good luck to all involved in both games.
The first team played Glencar/Manorhamilton on Saturday evening last in Pairc Sean and this turned out to be the usual close encounter. The first half was a very low scoring affair and the Gaels went into the break two points down (0-03 to 0-01) the second half was a bit better, the Gaels played a lot better and in the dying minutes led 0-07 to 0-05, but Glencar/Manor came back and levelled again. Both sides will feel they could have won the game, but draw was a fair result in the end.
The second team took on Cloone in the Intermediate Championship on Sunday and were always going to find it difficult. Nevertheless they put on a brave display and if they had been more accurate in front of goal it could have been a different story.
Final score was Cloone 2-07, Melvin Gaels 1-04.
Well done to both teams and the mentors.

Junior League Game v Aughnasheelin
On Sunday morning the Gaels Junior team took on Augnasheelin in the Third Round of division four league.
The game was played in good conditions apart from a strong breeze. The Gaels played against the wind in the first half and found scores hard to come by.
They went into the break trailing by for points, 2-4 to 1-3.
In the second half Aughnasheelin found it just as difficult to gets and the Gaels played well and won well in the end.
The final score was Melvin Gaels 4-10, Aughnasheelin 2-4.
This was a great team performance, well done to all concerned.
The Club would like to wish the Captain of the Junior Team, Blaine Mulligan, a speedy recovery from an injury he sustained in the game. Blaine had to be taken to Sligo General hospital, but thankfully he is going to be okay.
