Our U16 and U19 girls put their heart and soul against a Pres Tuam side yesterday under the management of Ms.Canny and Ms.O’Reilly. The U16 girls managed to catch a 12pt margin to lead into the last quatre. Amazing displays by Jodie Scariff who turned the game around as well as Niamh Nestor, Emily Hannon and Laura Turner showed the great spirit this team has but unlucky for us lost by 1 pt in the closing seconds. Our strong U19 girls brought a composed and steady display of defence, skill and scoring ability coming out with a 22 18 win. Tremendous play from Aoife Sheehy, Holly Reddington, Amy Burns, Lorna Murphy and SarahKate Nestor must be commended with Niamh and Emily (u16s) pulled up trumps when called on. Best of luck girls against St. Nathys!

Well done to our Senior & Cadet lads who travelled to Galway this week to play Merlin College. Both teams put up huge scores and won convincingly.
A tightly contested tit for tat clash with St. Jarlaths in Dunmore ushered in the juvenile boys’ first football match. The boys’ first outing saw some promising action that left anyone guessing who would clench the win. Indeed for the majority of the match only 1 or 2 points separated the teams with Jarlaths just holding the lead. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be with the final score being 3-9 to 1-10 to St. Jarlaths as a last minute goal by the opponents belied the battle that was fought by stretching the lead and indeed the outcome to 5 points. However this match hints at a bright season for our boys.
