Turlough 0-18, Sarsfields 1-15.

Turloughmore took on last years county champions in the 4th round of the championship on Sunday, venue Loughrea.

It was nip and tuck the whole way through the first half with neither team being allowed much space. This added to by the tight Loughrea pitch made it a scrappy affair. Fergal Moore scored two good points from Midfield in this period while Conor Shaughnessy, Barry Mc Donagh & Jamie Holland also chipped in with scores. Half time saw Sarsfields go in a point ahead at the break, Sarsfields 0-08, Turlough 0-07.

The second half was another tight encounter with Sean Linnane, Daithi Burke, Garry Burke, Ronan Badger and Conor Shaughnessy all registering scores. Both sides traded points until a Sarsfields goal on 50+ minutes put 4 points in it and looked to have put them out of reach.

Turloughmore never gave in however and showed great composure & character to respond with some fine points to level the game. 

Unfortunately their slow start to the championship looks to have cost the Turlough side as in order to qualify they now require Castlegar to beat Sarsfields in addition to beating St Thomas' themselves.  

On a positive note the team showed in their last two performances they can match the best, drawing against the 2014 & 15 county champions.

Team: Dullaghan, Mark Murphy, Ronan Burke, Dara Joyce, Vincent Doyle, Daithi Burke (0-2), Jamie Holland (0-03 frees), Fergal Moore (0-03), Brian Murphy (0-01), Michael Morris, Sean Linanne (0-01), Richard Doyle, Conor Shoughnessy (0-05, 4 frees), Ronan Badger (0-01), Barry Mc Donagh (0-01).

Subs: Gary Burke (0-01), Darren Shaughnessy, Shane Burke.
