We had a real mixed bag of Results over the weekend with 14 teams in action. On Friday night our U14 Ladies Football team played Thomas Davis in the Bogies. Although we were beaten the girls played very well. The team continues to improve every week and our scoring threat is increasing with every game we play.
The big game on Saturday was the 1st Round of the Intermediate Football Championship against Na Fianna out in Lawless Park in Swords. After a great 1st half performance which saw us 6 pts up at one stage, we faded badly in the second half and we were beaten on a score line of 4-8 to 0-11. We now enter the Intermediate Shield.
On Saturday morning juvenile hurling took centre stage with our U8s, U10s and U11 all competing in the Go Games leagues. The U8s travelled to Clonee to play Erin go Bragh with 22 players and won their 2 games. The U9 game was off due to the children from Gaelscoil Barra making their 1st Holy Communion, we hope they all had a great day. The U10s were unlucky in defeat to plunketts in the bogies with some great individual performances from our lads. The U11s had a good win in Finglas against Erin’s Isle after a great display of hurling. Our U14 Camogie girls had a big win against Naomh Barróg in the bogies.
On Saturday afternoon again it was all hurling. Our U13s were beaten by a strong Naomh Barróg team in St Annes Park. Our U14s received a walkover from Ballinteer St Johns. In the bogies our U16s had a very comfortable win against Kilmacud Crokes in the bogies. This puts us back in the running for the Division 2 league.
On Sunday morning the minor footballers were beaten by 2 points by St Brigids in the bogies. We fell behind in the second half but fought back very well and were unlucky not to get a result in the end. This team still has a lot of potential and are making steady progress this year. This game was followed by our junior footballers against Whitehall in AFL6. This team is a great mix of youth and experience and the mentors got the mix right and we ran out 3 point winners. In the afternoon the AFL10 team drew with Raheny out in St Annes Park.
Also yesterday morning our U11 Camogie had a really great win out in Rush against a previously unbeaten St Maurs team. Our girls played some great stuff and won on a score line of 4-2 to no score.
