On Bank Holiday Monday they had a game to forget. From the first whistle it was clear that Naomh Brid, were intent on getting their first win of their league campaign.
The reserves were got off to a bad start conceding a goal in the first minute and had an up hill battle against a very experienced Ballyshannon outfit. But the Red Hughs lads never gave up and were in fact eight points down at one stage in the second half. But the lads fought to the end and gave the Erne siders a battle right to the final whistle. The final scoreline was 4-8 to 2-10. And they followed that win up with victory over Naomh Brid on Monday.

But the legs tired and Mc Cools took control in the final minutes to run out winners on the night. A big thank you to Mark Mc Menamin Construction who sponsored a new set of jerseys for the lads. The minors overcame a strong Na Rossa / Dungloe challenge in Glenfin last Wednesday evening to reach the Division two county final.

Johnny carlin, Stephen Mc Menamin and James Carlin put the cross lads three up before the challengers got their first score. The lads then got two more scores through Odharan Doherty and Ryan Bradley. The Na Rossa Dungloe lads then added another two points before the Reds broke on the counter attack with a long ball through to Justin Mc Bride who picked out Corey Gallagher in the box who took full advantage and finished off a great move to the back of the net.
The opposition cancelled out the goal with a well worked goal of their own within two minutes. The Reds then upped the tempo and slotted over three more points before halftime through Johnny Carlin, & James with another two points. The half time score was 1-8 to 1-3
The Na Rossa boys started strong in the second half and puled the game back to a two points. With the pressure building on the Reds Corey Gallagher got his second goal of the game at a really crucial stage to calm the nerves. Gavin Wright picked him out with a terrific pass and he converted calmly to the net once again. The goal was backed up with two more points one from Johnny and another from James to open the gap to seven once again. With only ten minutes left the Reds were in the driving seat. The men from the West scored their final point of the game and The Reds added two more one from Cathal Doherty and one from Johnny Carlin to run out winners on a score line of 2-12 to 1-7
