U12 – St Joseph’s U12s played two rounds of the Longford/Leitrim league this week. The first game took place in Aughavas against Grattan Gaels on Monday evening. At halftime St Joseph’s were trailing by four points but they put in a very determined performance in the second half to go into the lead and seemed to be heading for victory but unfortunately a late flurry of goals from their opponents in the last five minutes meant that they lost out on a final scoreline of St Joseph’s 5-07 Grattan Gaels 6-08. This was a  heartbreaking defeat for St Josephs who had the win snatched from their grasp in the dying minutes of the game. Hopefully, a harsh lesson learned. On Thursday evening, we travelled to Newtowncashel to take on Southern Gaels. Playing against the strong breeze in the first half the St Joseph’s defence put in a determined showing in the first twenty minutes to only trail by a point at that stage, but unfortunately their resistance cracked as the half wore on and the concession of a few soft scores left our lads trailing by 3-04 to 0-03 at halftime. With the wind advantage, a good start to the second half was required but St Joseph’s never got going and Southern Gaels won out comfortably on a final scoreline of 6-11 to 1-05. We round off our games in the competition with an away game against Colmcille on Thursday evening.

Leitrim U17 and Seniors – Good luck to our county u17 team and Management who play Roscommon this Saturday in Pairc Sean and good luck to our  Leitrim Seniors team and management who take on Louth on Saturday in  Pairc Sean Carrick-on- Shannon; check fixtures for times. Please support.

Under 12 Cross County League – Our U12 team continued their campaign last week in the Cross County league playing 2 games.We travelled to Leitrim Gaels on Monday last in what was a great game throughout and it was the home side that ran out eventual winners.

Our young Bors are showing great improvement in every game and they finish their campaign this Thursday when we welcome St Vincent’s to Dromod at 7.30.
