The clubs McGowan Directional Drilling sponsored senior team had a very disappointing result against out neighbours Western Gaels at the weekend. Two early goals meant Boyle were always chasing the game. The team have two games left in the league and if they win both, they will be into the county league semi final so there is still a lot for this team to play for.

U14 Division 1 Championship Final Boyle 2-13 Roscommon Gaels 5-9.
Boyle hold their heads high as they are beaten finalst of U14 Division 1 Championship. Boyle score 2 points in the very early exchanges of the game to lead by 2 but Roscommon got ahead by a goal a lead they never relinquish through the rest of the game. Boyle tried hard to try and claw back the lead, but could only narrow the gap down to 5 points during the 2nd half but they did stop Roscommon from only registering 3 scores in the 2nd half but it was not enough as Roscommon goals proved to be match winner. Well done to both players and coaches, it was a great season to have reached semi’s of the spring league. A huge performance in Feile this summer also reaching the semi final and beaten finalist of Division one Championship having won all the leagues games of the Championship. Well done to all involved.
The club wishes to extend sympathies to the Sharkey and Casey families on their recent bereavements.
Also thanks to the club members who helped out for the matches on Saturday
