Truagh V Inniskeen in  SFC Qualifier: Truagh defeated Inniskeen in a scrappy, intense, tough, physical game in Clontibret on Sunday evening September 9th. Truagh players tried to play good football but were soon drawn into a physical contest that was nasty at times and dangerous too. Lots of injuries, Yellow and Red cards followed but the final whistle came when Truagh were 0 - 13 to 2 - 5 ahead and so put them through to the next round of qualifiers which they will play on Saturday evening next in Emyvale against Ballybay, who were defeated by Scotstown in the match that followed the Truagh game in Clontibret. In the first half Turagh were unsettled and making mistakes as Inniskeen came at them hard and went into an early lead. By half time Truagh had brought them back to within a point and followed on the second half with good displays. It looked like a draw was on the cards and extra time would be played but there was plenty to come. Inniskeen took the lead but then three points from the Truagh men gave the victory to Truagh and passage to the next round. Ballybay will not be an easy opposition and will demand a full team giving of their best for the full 70+ minutes. Mistakes will be punished by this solid Ballybay side with attacks starting and including the back line of defence as they push forward at speed. This should be a good game and hopefully football will have centre stage. I still think changes are needed to the rules as too many players are suffering from tackles from three and four opposition players thumping, pulling and holding. It spoils it as a game and leads to frustration and a rise in tempers ending with cards.
Below some action from the Ballybay V Scotstown game which ended in favour of Scotstown.
