U16 Boys

Our U16 Div 1 lads were out last Friday evening in the final round of the championship with a semi final spot up for the taking. We played the combined team of Kilmore/Shannon Gaels/St.Ronans in Kilmore. This was a real championship game with great personal contests throughout the field. With both teams playing it tight the half ended with us ahead 1/8 to 1/5. On the resumption Kilmore came right into it and we were level with 10 mins to go. With a piece of sublime skill from Ruaidhri Fallon the ball ended in the Kilmore net and we pushed on to finish the game on a score line of 4/12 to 2/11.
On Sunday morning our U 16 reserve team played Clann na Gael in Johnstown in the reverse fixture. Open football with the kickpass to the fore was the order of the day. Playing against the wind we played great ball and ended the half on a scoreline of 2/6 to 1/7 to us. In the second half playing with the wind we took some great scores and the game finished on a scoreline of 5/13 to 2/8.

Senior Championship

St. Brigid’s 2-12, Western Gaels 2-12.

Our Hodson Bay Hotel sponsored senior team were lucky to come away from Athleague on Sunday last with a draw. After leading by 7 points at one stage in the first half, Western Gaels tightened up on us and ensured the rest of the game was a much closer affair. In fact St. Brigid’s only got the equaliser in the last minute of injury time. For a full match report please see the sports section of local papers.

Many thanks to everyone in Athleague for their hospitality on Sunday and for having the pitch in such great condition.
