#181 Flyer’s and ‘Time impress in great night in Wellington

It was an absolutely great night for Gaelic football in Wellington, NZ on Wednesday evening last as spectators were treated to thrilling games in the second Wellington Mixed Sevens competition at Ian Galloway Park. 
The pre Christmas sevens was such a  success that there was a call for another mixed sevens competition and so on a lovely evening a fine turnout of 10 teams took to the field for the first week of this four round tournament.
In Group A, newcomers Empire Strikes Back with two games on the night, got off to a great start with a win over Frances Hankeys Crokes in their first match, but just fell short in a goal fest with Molly Malones in a thriller later in the evening. T-Shirt Time impressed in their 16 point win over a depleted Daseys Midnight Runners.
Meanwhile in Group B, Flannagans Flyers got off to another great start beating the mostly Kiwi side, Humans or Badgers while the pre Christmas sevens runners-up, Clonbony Abu were pushed all the way in another great game by the local rugby contingent of Cuchulainn Crew. In the last game of the night, the ‘Flyers were once again on song with a seven point win over the Monster Munchers.
Back once more to tell us about all the action is Wellington GAA Chairman, Donal Kavanagh.
