Longford Leitrim U-12’s
Congratulations to the U-12’s who had a great win over Clonguish in the Division 3 Final on Sunday evening in Pairc Sean. The lads put in a great team performance and came up with crucial goals when they were needed to win by 2 points. Raymond McGarry with a hatrick led the way & further goals from Kian Dennis, Daniel O’Loughlin and the late winner from Padraig Kane made for a memorable victory. Well done to the full panel of Rory Grier, James O’Connor, James Rock, Fionn Gilrane, Adam Casey, Padraig Kane, Aidan Dowler, Daniel O’Loughlin, Kian Dennis, Raymond McGarry, Thomas McKeon, Calum O’Rourke, Conor McKeon, Sean Nolan, Oran Foley, Shane McGovern, Cathal Kenny, Josh McWeeney. Thanks to the mentors who looked after the team Cyril McKeon, Kenneth Dowler, Enda Gilrane & Farrell McKeon.
 
U-14 Ladies Final
The girls came up just short against Glencar Manorhamilton in the U-14 Final played last Thursday evening in Dromahair on a scoreline of 3-10 to 2-08. Manorhamilton had the edge in scoring power and led at the interval but the girls put in a stirring fight back after the break and despite their best efforts couldn’t get enough scores to bridge the gap. Some outstanding goal keeping from Niamh McDonagh kept us in with a shout and a second half goal from Olwyn Moore along with the accurate free taking of Megan Moran just wasn’t enough. Then panel was Niamh McDonagh, Rosalyn Kane, Niamh Morahan, Kaitlyn Dolan, Laoise Fee, Jacquelina Ozdobinska, Maria McGrenaghan, Edel O’Donnell, Megan Moran, Olwyn Moore, Lauren McKeon, Rachel McGarry, Sarah McLoughlin, Grace McKeon, Abby Collins, Étàin O’Connell, Chloe Gilmartin, Aoife Nolan, Ava McGarry, Grace Hopkins, Grace Harding, Katie McManus, Amy O’Donnell, Ava Logan, Jessica Rock. Well done to Ciara McTigue and Sinead Dolan who looked after the girls all year. One final note, the pitch was very heavily sanded and it made playing conditions very difficult for both teams and indeed both sides deserved better for a championship final.    
 
St. Francis Ladies
The ladies got off to a great start in the Intermediate Championship with a win over Mohill on Sunday in Ballinamore on a scoreline of 6-07 to 4-09. A good start is half the battle and 3 goals in the opening quarter gave us a cushion and despite a spirited comeback from Mohill we held on for a crucial win. Well done to the girls and to Paddy & Eamonn. Next up is Oughteragh Gaels in Mohill next Sunday at 12noon.
 
Division 1
Another blitz of fixtures this week with a home game against Gortletteragh on Wednesday evening at 8pm in the park and we travel to Manorhamilton on Saturday for the final round of the league at 7pm. Best of luck to Kevin, Noel, Paul and the lads.
 
Division 3
The lads completed the league programme with a win in Glenfarne on Sunday with the score 4-10 to 2-10. Goals from Caleb Duffy, Gareth Higgins, Wayne Gunning & Ciaran Walsh got us over the line. Strangely there is still a game outstanding which has a bearing on relegation so the final league placings are not yet known.
 
U-17’s
The U-17’s kicked off the championship at home to Leitrim Gaels on Monday evening but unfortunately the game was abandoned after only 10 minutes when a serious accidental clash of heads, resulted in both our own Colin Moran and Leitrim Gaels, Jack Flynn, being taken away by ambulance after a sickening collision. We wish the 2 lads a speedy and full recovery. Many thanks to everyone who helped out at the pitch especially Dr. Declan Loftus who attended to both players.
U-15’s
We played out a very enjoyable draw with Fenagh last week in the Westlink Coaches Championship with the scores tied at 3-09 apiece so well done to the lads. There is no game this week.
U-13’s
The boys had a good win over Leitrim Gaels in the park on Monday evening on a scoreline of 3-09 to 2-08. We play Gortletteragh away this Thursday evening at 7pm. Best of luck to all.
