SENIOR:
 
Our Seniors threw away a great to reach the semi-final of the Div. 1 league when they were beaten by Strokestown in Orchard Park on Saturday evening.
Elphin played some great football in the 1st half and were well ahead at half time, however Strokestown gradually chipped away at the lead and finished one point victors. Final score Elphin 0-12 Strokestown 0-13.
  The team now face Castlerea in the county semi-final next Sunday in Hyde Park. The Club asks everyone to come out to support the lads as they bid to reach the County Senior final for the first time since 1986.

 

JUNIOR A:
  The Junior A team bowed out of this year`s championship against Michael Glavey`s in Castlerea on Sunday in the ¼ final replay. It was particularly disappointing as the team had been within seconds of snatching a victory last Sunday.
  Elphin started slowly and despite playing with the breeze found themselves 5 points down after 10 minutes. Gerry Cregg opened Elphin`s account with a good point after a long solo run. Our next score was a 3 pointer as Seanie O`Beirne finished to the net after good work by Martin Cregg and Brendan Neary. Minutes later another goal opportunity presented itself as Neary again played in a good pass to the inside forward line, however, this time the goalie blocked the shot and the chance was lost. Points were traded between the teams as Martin Cregg scored a well taken point and Brendan Neary scored our last point of the half after a strong solo run to leave Elphin just 2 point in arrears at the break on a scoreline of Elphin 1-03 Glavey`s 0-08.
    A close 2nd half was expected but this was not to be the case as Glavey`s stretched their lead to 4 points early in the half. At this Elphin were struggling to put scores on the board, missing some good chances, and Glavey`s gradually edged further ahead. Elphin were now chasing goals and almost got one when Seanie O`Beirne hit a shot narrowly over the bar. Martin McCaffrey pointed after a goal bound shot from Dermot Neary was blocked down. John Lambert and Martin Cregg scored Elphin`s other points. Glavey`s  began to take control and could have stretched their lead further only for Brian Oates to produce a great point blank save. We seemed to run out of steam in the last few minutes and Glavey`s tapped over some easy points to leave the final score Elphin 1-07 Michael Glavey`s 0-21.
   Our next game is against Oran in the Div. 3 league semi-final.
