It is never easy to beat the same team twice, especially in a short space of time. No matter how much better one outfit is compared to the other, defeating them the second time around is hard work. Their dander is up, and they are well focused to take you down. They will also have learnt from the first defeat and will be better organised to nullify your strengths.
The other senior city sides, Salthill-Knocknacarra and St Michael’s were also in action last weekend at Pearse Stadium and Gerry Hughes’ men had it all too easy winning on a score-line of 0-13 to 0-5.
In last weekend’s competition John Parsons was the winner with a score of 38pts, he finished two in front of Bob Leggett in second place. John O’Connor came home in third place, also on 36pts. The ladies’ competition was won by Geraldine O’Malley who scored 34pts, her play on the back nine kept her in front of Nora Heraty in second place and Catherine McNulty was back in third place on 33pts.
The Salthill/Knocknacarra footballers will head down the N17 made famous by the Sawdoctor’s with its stone walls and green grass around noon this Sunday to take on Tuam Stars in the replay (2pm) of the county semi-final at Tuam Stadium.
The draw took place last weekend for the county senior football semi-finals which are expected to take place in the early weeks of October, barring any more lengthy objections or replays.
Salthill/Knocknacarra have only won the Frank Fox Cup on two occasions, 1990 and 2005. However, based on the displays they have produced over the past few weeks, few could argue they are the team to beat this season in Galway football.
Following a hectic weekend of football action last Saturday and Sunday, three of the county football quarter-finals are down for decision this Sunday. There is a double header in Pearse Stadium with Carraroe taking on Milltown at 3.45pm and Salthill/Knocknacarra facing Moycullen at 5.30pm. Claregalway, who saw off NUIG last weekend, take on championship favourites Corofin in Tuam at 5.30pm. The outstanding quarter-final between Tuam Stars and either Cortoon Shamrocks or Mountbellew/Moylough and Micheal Breathnachs could not be fixed due to the ongoing shenanigans with Mountbellew/Moylough’s appeal.
