21/10/12 Seán Mac Cumhaills 2-11 Naomh Muire 1-11
Naomh Muire seniors went down by a goal in Ballybofey today on a scoreline of 2-11 to 1-11. A hard fought physical game where the home team got off to a great start leading by 1-03 to 0-00 after ten minutes. Naomh Muire quickly regrouped and battled hard to leave the half time score 1-06 to 1-04. Indeed in the second half it was the visitors who started the brightest and leveled matters soon after and pushed on to take the lead. With both sides trading points MacCumhaills came back strong and finished that single goal ahead in the end. The win means that MacCumhaills are assured of division 2 football next year whereas Naomh Muire return home next weekend to face Naomh Bríd in a battle for home advantage in the play off. There are a few different scenarios depending on other results but it the playoffs will involve Fanad Gaels, Naomh Bríd, Naomh Muire and possibly even Cloich Cheann Fhaola.
In the earlier game the reserves were defeated by a single point. A great effort from all the lads.
