U12 Girls: Our U12 Blue team played against St. Patrick’s on Friday night and despite a brilliant second half performance, lost out 2-12 to 2-8.

Playing against the wind in the 1st half left us with a lot to do in the 2nd half, but each and every one of the team dug in and really turned it around in that period. Finishing 2-12 to 2-08 made it a very exciting game, and we came really close in the end. A great game, and we will dust ourselves down and kick on for Round 2.

U10 Girls: Our U10 Girls play at home to Skryne tomorrow evening at 6:30.
