Abbeyknockmoy played there Pre-lim Q-final game against Castlegar last Sunday evening in Turloughmore with the result ending in a draw after extra-time in a must win game to make the Q-final stages of the championship. Abbey playing in to a stiff breeze in the first half and got off to good start with 2-1 in the first 15 minutes with Castlegar keeping in touch with some good points, Abbey concede a penalty which was duly converted which put castlegar in the lead with half-time score of 1-10 to 2-3 with Abbey trailing by 4 points. On the resumption Abbey tightened up in the backs and after some good play by the forwards they fought there way back to within 2 points after five minutes. The game ebbed and flowed and staunch defending by Castlegar and some excellent free taking they held on to the lead. However, Abbey kept plugging and managed a draw at full-time on a scoreline of 2-10 to 1-13. The game continued in the same mould in extra-time with scores hard to come by both teams and ended in a draw on a scoreline of 2-13 to 1-16. Overall abbey will be disappointed with the result as they had some great position, but chances were squandered with a total of 21 wides and a draw was a fair result. For the record the team was Declan Molloy, Richie Fox, Tommy Farragher, David Carton, David Coleman, Kieran Flaherty, Padraig O'Donnell, Ger Ruane, Ronan Cooley, John Blade (1-00), Brian Cooley (0-01), Brian Flaherty (0-05,1f), Brian O'Donnell, John Culkin (1-02), Colman Maher(0-3, 2f). Sub: Paul Flaherty (0-02,2F), Cathal Coleman Replay fixed for next Sunday at 4.00 in Turloughmore, support much appreciated
