Western Gaels Minors. At going to print we didn't have the result to hand
for our minor's first outing in this years championship which took
place on Tuesday evening at 7.45 in Colmcille. Full report to follow
The lads have their second game of the campaign in Clonbonny on Tuesday V Slashers. Best of luck to them and please come out to shout them on!
Our Juveniles lost their opening championship encounter in Clonbony on
Saturday last to a strong Drumlish/Dromard amalgamation. We had a number of absentees but the 14 lads who played battled hard and despite being down 2-5 to 0-4 at HT,
A spirited 2nd half saw us get back to within 2 points with some great goals from Oran Kenny (2) and Cronan Flood. A number of Shane Maguire frees kept us in touch until the visitors finished strongly with a couple of goals to put the game out of reach. Spirited performance and all attention turns to the next round V Clonguish in a couple of weeks with a must win game for the lads!
The U14's kept up their winning ways in the B Championship and continued
their winning ways with an emphatic win over South Longford. While the home side in Dunbeggan didn't have it all their own way, and were pressed for long periods in the 2nd half, a purple patch which produced a number of
goals sealed a comfortable win which had ensured a final spot.
Final game in the group V Clonguish is next and then progression to the A Championship will ensue!
Well done to all involved and best of luck going forward!
On this Wednesday 12th at 7 PM, Grattans looks forward to hosting a home blitz. Three other clubs are expected to be in attendance. It is the 2nd time that an U10's blitz was hosted at Grattans this year.
