Tulsk Return To Beat Leitrim Gaels

Tulsk provided another custom comeback to advance to the Connacht intermediate quarter-final at the expense of Leitrim Gaels to win out 1-13 to 1-12.

Stephen Goldrick and Colm Moreton helped the Gaels open up a four point to one lead before a palmed goal from Thomas O’Rourke in the eighth minute brought the Roscommon champions level.

But despite losing county star Aidan Flynn to a black card, Mal Guckian’s charges took control again to lead by 0-9 to 1-3 at the break.


The Leitrim side continued to dictate the pace until the Lord Edwards fired eight unanswered points in the last 10 minutes to turn the game on its head.

The Leitrim men had James Flynn red-carded for a second yellow card with two minutes remaining and couldn’t rescue the situation, despite an injury-time goal from Moreton.

Tulsk will return to Hyde Park next Saturday for a semi-final meeting with Galway kingpins Oughterard.
