Last week saw fantastic displays by the Minors, when they had 2 solid wins to put their season on a strong footing.   Too many good performances to name anyone individually.   The first game was last Monday in Kent Park against Calry and our lads quickly took charge and kept their opponents at bay, winning by 4-14 to 2-03.   On Friday, the squad travelled to Tourlestrane and posted a near identical score of 4-16.   The lads showed real character as the teams were level at half time at 2-03 to 1-06, with Tourlestrane turning to get the advantage of a strong wind.   Our lads showed incredible focus and determination thoughout every position on the field to finish winning by 11 points.   The Kiernan Cup semi-final against Tubbercurry was held on Sunday, and due to injuries and unavailability 7 of the minor side featured.   While our lads played tremendously, we were not able to match the more experienced and physically bigger side and we were defeated by 1-11 to 2-16.

Elsewhere in Bord na nOg the U14 boys had a comprehensive win over Eastern Harps and excitement all around when the U8 teams played Coolera last Wednesday.   This week the U16 boys take on St Molaise Gaels in a home league semi-final on Monday with a throw-in at 7pm, and let’s hope they reach the final.   Good luck everyone and all support welcomed.   Then the U12 Division 1 and 3 teams take the field on Tuesday away to Eastern Harps.   Saturday morning coaching continues to enjoy large numbers and thanks to all who assist to make this successful.

In the ladies section of the club, our U12 girls had a great win against Tourlestrane by 24 scores to 3 and now move on to compete in the league semi final next week.   Superb performance by all the girls, and training continues during the week in preparation for the next big test they will encounter.   Our U16 girls have had a strange league campaign and after a slow start rarely reached their potential.   There will be other days for this talented group and no doubt they will be training hard over the coming weeks to be at their best for the Championship.   Midweek training continues for the U8 and U10 girls squads

The monthly Bord na nOg meeting is scheduled for this Monday (13th) at 8.30pm
