Breaffy pulled back two points in the last few minutes of the half from Tommy Reilly and Liam Irwin to leave the score 1 – 5 to 0 – 3 at the break.

This was all put right in opening five minuets after the break with a point from Peter Dravins, and a goal from live wire Gareth Dunne, followed by a point from Tommy Reilly to leave the sides all square. Ciaran McDonald and Liam Irwin exchanged points, then further points from Alan Durcan, Rory Martyn and Durcan pushed Breaffy further ahead. Kevin Mulherm and Martin McAndrew replied with points each from play for Crossmolina. In a frantic last ten minutes  Alan Durcan and Tommy Reilly stretched Breaffys advantage with points each. Three points from Brian Benson (two from free’s) left the bare minimum separating the sides after an entertaining game.

Crossmolina Deel Rovers             1-15
Louisburgh                                  3-04       AET.
Crossmolina and Louisburgh served up an exciting 80 minutes of football during this U16 Championship 2 Semi final fixture at St Tiernans Park on Tuesday of last week. Played in showers of rain for the most part Tommy Walsh and Ronan Lavelle gave the home side a two points advantage after six minutes. This was wiped out two minutes later when Edward Ball booted the ball to the net after a goal mouth scramble. Jordan Flynn pointed a fee in the 9th minute to leave the sides all square. Sean Keane pointed for the West Mayo side after 14 minutes as scores were hard to come by with both defences on top only two more points were scored in the remaining 16 minutes. A Ronan Lavelle free and Edward Ball point from play to leave the half time score 1 – 2 to 0 – 4 in favour of Louisburgh.
If scores were hard earned in the opening half, Louisburgh started at lightning pace on the change of ends and had two goals scored before some of the Deel-Siders had taken up their positions, one by Edward Ball and one from Sean Keane. The visitors had an opportunity to go further ahead in the 10th minute when they were awarded a penalty. Fionn MacDonnacha drove the chance wide. Crossmolina replied through Darren Gill from play and Ronan Lavelle from a free. Edward Ball from a free replied with a point from a free and Dylan Pender rowed in the one from play for Louisburgh. With Jordan Flynn and Conor Rowland getting a firm grip at mid-field, Gary Hopkins scored from the penalty spot after he was up ended in the square in the 52nd minute, and two more points from Hopkins frees in the next four minutes left Crossmolina closer. Ronan Lavelle pointed from play after taking a pass from Jordan Flynn. Gary Hopkins sent the game to extra time when he pointed a free after Tommy Walsh was fouled. Indiscipline cost the Louisburg team this game, Edward Ball was black carded, Joseph Dawson saw red in normal time and it was at this stage Crossmolina came right back into game.
In extra time there was only one team in it going two points up in the first period from Jordan Flynn and a Gary Lynn free without reply, after the break Jordan Flynn, Darren Gill and Niall Maughan increased the Crossmolina advantage to leave the final score 1 – 15 to 3 – 4.
