Hard luck to our senior ladies who were beaten by St. Nathy’s in round 2 of the Senior Championship on Sunday morning. The ladies battled hard and showed moments of brilliant football, however a stronger St. Nathy’s side emerged victorious 3-17 to 1-5. Our young side were also missing some key members of the squad. Next weekend we host Geevagh at 10.30am on Sunday morning September 4th.
The junior ladies had their second championship outing away to Drumcliffe/Rosses Point on Saturday evening. In an entertaining game the home team led by 4 points at the break. It was a keenly contested second half and St. Mary’s equalised with a last minute Grainne Egan free to finish on a scoreline of 3-10 to 2-13. Next up is away to St. John’s on September 10th.
Our Junior ‘A’ and Junior ‘B’ mens teams are both in championship action this weekend. On Friday our Junior ‘B’ team host Eastern Harps in Kent Park at 7pm, and on Sunday the Junior ‘A’ team face Shamrock Gaels in Corran Park at 4pm.
Well done to our U15 boys team who beat Ballymote/Bunninadden in the county semi-final last week. They have qualified for the ‘A’ Championship final against Enniscrone/Kilglass which will be fixed for either Wednesday 7th or Thursday 8th or September.
