Aughawillan GAA Notes 19 December 2016
Dunnes Bar ACL Division 1 Final 2016: Never say die!! Such is the great spirit of Aughawillan football players that in a game with many twists and turns, and a seven point disadvantage after half time, Aughawillan displayed their resilience and spirit as they took to the field in the second half of the game. Aughawillan persisted with their pursuit of the double header in 2016, with stamina and self-assurance to come back in the final minute of the second half with a well-deserved draw. Top that, with a further draw after ten minutes of extra time and supporters were in a frenzy to see where this exciting game would end. Certainly it was not the ending we were hoping for, especially with a team we had knocked out of the Championship in the Quarter finals. However, on a constructive note this was a classic game of football that played out on the day, by two teams who put on an outstanding exhibition of football after a long, long year. Congratulations to Mohill on their win. Final score; Mohill 1-14 to Aughawillan 3-6. Our thanks to the many supporters, who turned out just one week to the day before Christmas to support their club in such huge numbers. Many thanks to all the players, selectors and the management team who have put in such hard work over the year. And as one chapter closes;-Another chapter opens!! Aughawillan look forward to 2017 and all the challenges it will bring. Willies Abú!!
