Well done to our U16 Boys who now progress to the B Championship FINAL with a great win over N. Fionnbarra/Lannliere. There were great scores from both teams on a windy night but the Blues started strong and stayed ahead to leave the opposition chasing the game. It resulted in a good win for the Blues lads.
Newtown Blues 5-11
N. Fionnbarra/Lannliere 4-09
The Blues will play the winners of St. Nicholas or Wolfe Tones on Friday 28th Sept. @8.30pm in the final in Darver.
Hard luck to our senior ladies who went out of the championship against Geraldines.The final score was Newtown Blues 0-6 Geraldines 3-14.Congratulations to the geraldines on reaching the final.
Well done to our U12 girls that took on the Geraldines on Thursday night at home in their last group game of the championship. A win would have secured them a place in the semi final.
Our girls started strong with a quick goal in the first quarter coupled with strong defensive play they kept a hold on the game as it would continue. It was tough conditions but that didn’t impact either team both providing plenty of scores to keep our spectators entertained. Unluckily our girls finished short by 2 points at the final whistle but they walked off with their heads held high as they emptied the tank for the 4 quarters.
They finished tied in 2nd place of their group and missed the semi final spot with points difference, a similar position to our U16 girls.
Hard luck ladies -your parents, mentors and fellow club members are delighted with your efforts. Real team spirit and sportsmanship at all times. 🙌🙌
Final score last night:
Newtown Blues 1-04
