Galbally push Drom Broadford closer to relegation in Limerick SFC

Last night, Galbally earned their first win of the campaign, defeating Drom Broadford 2-11 to 1-6 to move off the foot of the Group Two table in the Limerick SFC.

The loss for Drom leaves them pointless after four games with anything but a win in their last game against Na Piarsaigh seeing them enter into a relegation play-off against whoever finishes bottom of Group 1.

Even a win here may not be enough with Galbally’s scoring difference (-21) much better than that of Drom’s (-33).

In Kilmallock, Galbally were deserving winners and lead throughout. At the break they were 0-8 to 0-3 ahead.

They extended this lead early in the second half with the games first goal coming from Mike O’Donovan putting them 1-10 to 0-3 to the good.

James Molyneaux responded with a goal for the West club, but the game was put to bed when Galbally got their second goal late on.

Galbally play St Kierans in their final group game in a fortnight with qualification to the knockout stages seemingly out of reach.

In the same group, St Kierans face Oola tonight in Clarina at 7pm. Oola come into the game on six points with another win pushing them to the top of the pile. A win for Kierans will draw them level on points with Oola however.

On Sunday evening, Newcastle West face Na Piarsaigh in Askeaton. A win for NCW will guarantee their progression to the knockout stages while the Caherdavin side need a win to keep their knockout hopes alive.

In Group 1, Adare and St Senans kick off the action on Friday in the Bog Garden. Adare can seal top spot with a game to spare with a win while St Senans are still without any points.

On Saturday afternoon, Monaleen meet Ballylanders with a loss for either side ending their qualification hopes.

Ballysteen and Fr Caseys meet on Sunday night with both sides on four points from their three games. A win for either side will almost certainly seal progression to the knockout stages.
