Another weekend of rain resulted in postponements of games, this time around the entire Sunday schedule. Games will be rescheduled, times and dates will be posted on the Boston GAA web site, www.bostongaa.com.
Thankfully Saturday’s games went ahead. Wolfe Tones and Donegal ended up all square at 3-6 to 1-12. At the break Donegal were ahead by a score of 1-7 to 1-3 and looked like the better team. The Tones banged in an early second half goal and brought in some experienced horses in Edmund Carr and Kevin Gorham. Donegal looked to Christy McLaughlin for the scores to maintain parity, and after the Tones kicked a third goal it took an injury time equalizer from McLaughlin to rescue the point for Donegal. Aidan McAnespies continue to do well in the junior A competition with an eight point win over Galway on Field B.
The Junior hurlers of Tipperary and Fr. Tom Burke’s met with Tom’s coming out with a 2-12 to 1-12 win. Tipp had the better of it early on as Tom’s were slow to get out of the gates. Once they got going however, Tom’s did well all over the field. Terry Doran, Larry Guinan, and James Dooley did well in the back line to hold Tipp out and keep the play headed in the other direction. Two Tom’s goals in the final 15 minutes put some distance between the teams in what was an otherwise close game. Tipp’s John Roche and Mark Jordan tried to life the side late in game, and a goal from a Roche free brought Tipp within a score Tom’s, but time was up at that stage.
