The Under-21 footballers gave up their attempt to make it three-in-a-row of county titles when they went down on a score line of 3-7 to 2-8 to Starlights in a wet and windy Bellefield on Friday night.
The visitors were quickly off the mark with points from Liam Rockett and Kevin O'Connor, and with the assistance of a strong wind the Shelmalier men extended their lead with further points from Colin Cleary and Kevin O'Connor.
There was great delight for the visiting supporters when Jody Donohoe fired to the roof of the Starlights net in the 20th minute. Kevin O'Connor and Colin Cleary completed their side's scoring in the first-half to leave a half-time score of Shelmaliers 1-7, Starlights 1-3.
The home side came out very strongly on the resumption with the assistance of the wind and the sides were soon level (1-7 to 2-4).
A Liam Rockett goal in the 16th minute gave great encouragement to the Shelmaliers, however, the Starlights proved the stronger in the final quarter to win by 3-7 to 2-8.
There was no winner of the Shelmalier development lotto on Monday, November 30, when the numbers drawn were 7, 19, 23 and 31 and the jackpot stood at €10,800. There was one lucky winner of match three and that was Bobby Delaney who won €200 in time for Christmas.
The G.A.A. club lotto jackpot wasn't won last week. The numbers were 11, 17, 18 and 28 and there were four match threes: Billy Clarke, c/o Declan Clarke; Laurence Banville, Shanoule; Brian Wallace, Wellingtonbridge, and Garvan Kelly, Tomcoole.
Next week's jackpot will be €10,700 and the draw will be in Grantstown on December 15.
Our club development draw was launched at our A.G.M. last Friday night. First prize will be €5,000 with numerous other prizes. Tickets are €10 each or three for €20.
