Gurtagarry 3 Portumna Town 2
Portumna travelled to Gurtagarry for the Shield Semi Final which kicked off at 12.15 with Gurtagarry opting to play with the very strong wind. Gurtagarry put Portumna under pressure and scored their first after 9 minutes with a cross in from the right which… was tucked away. Portumna responded 2 minutes later with a nicely placed goal from David Fogarty. Gurtagarry scored after 30 minutes from a breaking ball which was put away by the No 10. Gurtagarry failed to convert a penalty which was awarded close to half time
Second half saw both teams give everything in the difficult conditions with Gurtagarry scoring after 15 minutes. Portumna stuck to their task and 10 minutes later Colin Burke delivered a ball to Chris Guilfoyle who found the net. Both teams pressed hard with some excellent shots stopped by the Portumna Keeper Niall Royston.
