GAA - All the scoring records for this year's Laois Senior Football Championship

Colm Murphy was the top goalscorer this year.

With the Laois SFC season now over after what, we must admit, has been one of the more entertaining championships in recent memory, here we present you all with a breakdown of the scoring records from 2017.

The results, team lists and individual scorers and top scorers by club can found by scrolling down through this page. We've had a browse through results ourselves, and have come up with the following points of interest (if you're interested in this kind of stuff, of course!)

Ross Munnelly finished the competition as overall top scorer, with Portarlington brothers David and Colm Murphy the joint-top scorers from play. You can learn more about the individual scoring charts HERE.

Colm Murphy also takes the honour of recording the highest scoring total in a single game, having scored 2-6 against Ballyroan Abbey in Round 2.

Murphy is also the top goalscorer in the championship, after scoring five in five games for Portarlington.

Brendan Hickey from St Joseph's also deserves a mention here, as he scored a goal in all four games he played in, an impressive feat from him. He finished with a total of 4-5 in four games.

Ross Munnelly was the top point scorer as well, hitting 25 points in four games, with Niall Mullen (Mountmellick) and Donie Kingston just behind with 24 points each.

Alan Farrell from Ballylinan was the highest scoring defender in the SFC this year, as he recorded a total of 1-4 from wing-back.

The highest scoring goalkeeper was Clonaslee St Manman's Gaels stopper Conor Gorman, courtesy of his penalty against Crettyard Gaels, giving him a total of 1-0. Danny Bolger from Graiguecullen was the only other goalkeeper to score, pointing a free in their game against Killeshin. Special mention to Graham Brody though, who was involved in countless attacks for Portlaoise, and we're sure will eventually score from play in the SFC.

The Highest Scoring Game in the SFC this year came in Round 2, as Portlaoise beat O'Dempsey's 5-14 to 1-14.

The Lowest Scoring Game also came in Round 2, when Graiguecullen edged out The Heath by 0-10 to 0-8.

The Biggest Winning Margin goes to Portarlington, for their 2-23 to 0-10 win over Ballyroan Abbey, also in Round 2.

Portarlington are also the Top Scoring Team in the SFC this year, scoring 12-71 across five games for a total of 107 points, an average of just over 21 points per game.

Ballyroan Abbey were the Lowest Scoring Team, after recording just 2-26 in three championship games.

Portlaoise also had the distinction of twice going through a half of football without conceding a point from play. They achieved this in the first half of their semi-final against Graiguecullen, and the second half of the final against Ballylinan.

Now, for those looking to suffer a Repetitive Strain Injury, feel free to scroll all the way through the scoring records from this year's Laois SFC, which are below. Put on a pot of coffee, and enjoy!
