Winning start to 2008

Wolfe Tones 2-12 Pearses 1-7

The first game of the 2008 season got of to a flying start for the Tones defeating Padraig Pearses in Gaelic Park. A hotly contested game as always the Pearses put it up to the Tones in the first half with only a point in at halftime John Gallagher at full back and Ciaran Feely at full forward doing some hard work to keep the Tones in it. In the second half a well drilled Wolfe Tones team showed there superior fitness thanks to the new captain Ciaran Lavelle who has really pushed players all the way in pre-season training. In the last fifteens mins the Tones pulled away getting that extra space to add on some extra scores.

Man of the match. John Gallagher (Tyrone)
