Clan na Gael 3-4 Roche Emmets 3-11
The U16 league resumed Monday evening with either team not having played for eight and seven weeks respectively, however both teams served up an entertaining game of football with both scoring early goals to set up a lively encounter, it was Roche who seized the initiative and with some great team play and fine point taking led at half time by 2-8 to 1-2 . The Clans started the second half really well and a couple of quick fire goals got them to within a kick of the ball of Roche. Both teams defences cancelled each other out in a game where no quarter was given and any ball won was truly earned a goal and another 3 points saw Roche run out winners.
Roche Scorers: Adam Fee 2-2, Glen Stewart 1-5, Fintan Watters 0-3 & James McArdle 0-1

Excellent win by our men’s team in the Junior Championship Rd1 1 last night beating Lann Leire on a scoreline of 2-12 to 0-10.
Roche U7’s played in a blitz this Sunday morning hosted by the Dundalk Young Irelander’s and also attended by Dundalk Gaels, Dowdallshill and Sean O’Mahony’s.
Roche impressed by displaying their skills in soloing, hand passing, kicking, tackling and scoring. They again demonstrated great teamwork and this helped when we introduced two new players (Seánie and Liam) to our team today.
