Our Over 35s drew 3-3 with fellow unbeaten team Cregmore in Cararroe. 
In what was an end to end game from start to finish, OAFC had the better of the first half through goals from Paul Maloney and Jonathan Rigney. Cregmore took the lead again in the second half, but with the last kick off the game Patrick Burke was taken down leaving Paul Maloney equalising from the spot.
This result leaves us still top and in the race for a home semi-final.
Well done to all the Players and Coaches.

Our O35s had a good 1-1 draw away to East Galway Utd. 
In what were tough windy conditions we went in 1-1 at half-time through a Darren Walsh header. 
We pushed on in the second half looking for the win but could not find a winner leaving it 1-1 at full time. 
A good positive start to the League leaves this team unbeaten after 3 games.

Well done to our Mens O35 Team who had a good 4-0 win vs Corofin Utd in Carraroe this evening. 
Playing against the wind in the first half we went 1-0 up after 20 mins through Patrick Burke after a great cross from Cathal Walsh.
Cathal got himself on the scoresheet 10 mins later, leaving us 2-0 up at the break. 
Controlling the second half we scored 2 more through a poachers finish from Darren Walsh and a lovely strike from Aongus Lydon. 
An unbeaten start to the season after two games, well done to all the Players and Coaches ๐Ÿ‘
