#266 Galway footballers impress, hurlers also into Boston semis

It was a terrific weekend for Gaelic sports at Canton, Boston last Saturday and Sunday as there was two very exciting mens senior football championship quarter finals on offer along with two equally compelling last round games in senior hurling.

In football, the Donegal versus Galway game was a thriller as it went to Overtime with an impressive Galway side downing the champs by [23] 1-20 to [19] 2-13 in the end.
This is a fantastic result for the Galway club who now find themslevves back in a senior semi final for the first time in decades.
In the other quarter final another nailbiter saw 2009 champions, St Christopher’s edge out Wolfe Tones by the minimum on a scoreline of [14]1-11 to [13]1-10.

In the last round of the senior hurling championship meanwhile, Galway had a great win over Fr Tom Burkes by [22] 1-19 to [20] 0-20. The win forced a playoff game on Wednesday evening with the same pair again and it was Galway once more who came out on top to book their place in the semis.
There was something of a shock in the other hurling game with championship leaders, Wexford toppled by Tipperary [24] 3-15 to [15] 2-9 . A good start by Tipp cemented victory here and as both finished level on points at the top of the table a draw was made to see who would go directly into the final. Ironically, for Tipp it was Galway who were the lucky ones.

In the Intermediate final, Shannon Blues claimed victory when beating Mayo by [21] 4-9 to [9] 1-6.
