U16 A Championship Shield FINAL
Our U16 girls travelled to Roche to take on Cooley in the A Championship Final on Wednesday. This was a game of two halves with the wind dominating play. The Blues girls started with the wind and took full advantage of it going into the half 1-06 to 0-1. The 2nd half saw Cooley come out to try and get back in the game and they hit the net on 3 occasions to bring this game back into a contest. Despite both teams efforts to get the finishing score to come away with a win, at the final whistle both sides were level. A replay will now be required. Date TBC

Well done to the Blues ladies on a great effort.
Hard luck to our U13 boys who lost out to the Geraldines last monday in an exciting contest. There were plenty of scoring opportunities but unfortunately it was the Geraldines that took early control of the game leaving the Blues lads chasing it. However, at the half there was only a point between the sides. At the restart the Geraldines came out strong with some well taken frees and they were lucky to hit the back of the net. The Blues lads never gave up hope and rattled the back of the net with minutes left to bring it to just a kick of a ball between the teams. However time ran out for the Blues and at the final whistle the Geraldines finished ahead.
Well done to the Blues team and mentors Donal & Ken on a great run. No doubt we will see plenty of exciting action with this gang next year.
Well done to the Geraldines GFC on a good win.
