Junior Championship – McElligott Cup:
We travelled to Killarney on Friday night to play Spa in the semi final of the Junior Championship and emerged with a great victory winning on a final score of 2-12 to 2-9.

Spa started quickly and had a goal inside the opening 2 minutes but we responded with points from Cian O Brien, George Bastible and Graham Higgins to get back on terms.

Both teams traded scores before a goal from Bryan Costello saw us going in leading at half time on a score of 1-6 to 1-4. Both teams had goal chances early in the 2nd half before a fine individual goal from Cian Holden saw us take control of the game. Spa scored a goal late on but we held out for a well deserved win.

We now await the winners of the 2nd semi final between Beaufort and Ballydonoghue.

Team: Paul O’Connor, Jordan Bowler, Jack Myers, Mark Ryle, Robert Sullivan, Brendan O’Mahony, Graham Higgins, George Bastible, Conor Hurley, Ciaran Kileen, Cian Holden, Peter Murphy, Cian O’Brien, Bryan Costello, Mikey Walsh, Eoin Barden, Dylan Burns, Darren Burns

U 10 Boys
We had a great session on Sunday last but as the pitch was wet we decided to train on the all-weather pitch. Training was hard and good and all the lads gave a great effort and commitment, well done lads. There was great ball control and great skill shown by all.
Next Saturday 23rd we take part in our own blitz and we hope to have a really enjoyable day. Make sure to be there at 10.00 and have the club colours top, gum shield, a drink and some food as it is a long day with lots of games.
