On Sunday the Galway Senior team beat their old foes, Mayo, in Pearse Stadium to win their third successive Connacht Championship Final! It was a tight affair, with the Galway team showing tremendous character to overcome a very strong Mayo team. Dylan McHugh, Liam Silke and Kieran Molloy started the game, while Jack McCabe was named on the bench. The win puts Galway into Group 1 with Derry, Westmeath and the losers of Donegal/Armagh.
On Friday evening, the Junior team played Annaghdown at Corofin pitch for Round 5 of Division 4. The girls were up against a very strong and organised Annaghdown team. Despite a determined attitude from the girls, the game went away from them with the final score Corofin 1-06 Annaghdown 3-14, Corofin goal from Hannah Hession.
On Saturday evening the Senior team were away to Caltra Cuans for Round 5 of Division 1. A poor 15 minute spell in the first half saw Caltra score 3 quick goals, however, while they were down by 3-7 to 0-3, the girls put in a determined performance in the second half. A great team goal finished by Ella Zwyczyk and a couple of great points by Emily O'Connor cut the lead. Unfortunately, an untimely deflected goal extended the Caltra lead again. The Corofin girls did not give in and played to the end. Such was the quality of their play that all the Corofin scores came from play. Final scoreline Corofin 1-11 Caltra 4-09.
