Well Done Girls:
Well done to St. Joseph’s ladies who had a great 0-11 to 0-09 victory over Dromahair in the senior championship final replay played in Bornacoola last Saturday evening. These girls have shown fantastic character to continually come back despite suffering defeat in so many finals and would not be denied on Saturday in a tense encounter. Well done girls and enjoy the celebrations.
U13 Championship Final:
St Josephs U13’s played Fenagh in the final of the 13-a-side championship on Friday evening at the centre of excellence in Annaduff. Unfortunately for our lads it was a game in which they struggled to gain a foothold against a physically stronger Fenagh team who enjoyed a comfortable victory and are deserving champions. Hard luck to our lads who put in a great effort all year and have made good progress and hopefully they will have better days in the future. The panel of players on Friday evening was Jonathan Harkness, Ben Harte, Fiachra Casey, Eanna Mc Namara, Cathal Mc Namara, Liam Mc Intyre, Pearse Kenny, Declan Brooks, Kalum Mc Loughlin, Aodán Harte, Harry Wilson, Cian Mimna, Darren Shortt, Dylan O’ Connell, Tommy Kearney, Fionnan Harte, Gary Mitchell, James Quinn, Keelan Furlong, Padraig Maguire, Jack Mc Intyre, Matthew Mc Cabe, Kevin Doherty, Cian Mc Hugh. Thanks to the large group of supporters who attended the final and other games all year and helped provide transport to away matches. Thanks also to Ciaran Harte, Fintan McBrien, Noel Shortt and Padraig McLoughlin for their huge commitment throughout the year.
St. Joseph’s U15’s played Fenagh in the U15 (15-a-side) championship semi final in Carrigallen last Monday. We performed very well in the first half against a formidable Fenagh outfit and led by 5 points at half time. Fenagh began the second half strongly, and after converting a penalty, our lead was reduced to the narrowest of margins. However, an excellent final quarter saw us score three goals and run out winners on a final score of St. Joseph’s 3-11 Fenagh St. Caillin’s 1-08. We now meet St. Mary’s in the final, date and venue TBC. Keep the green & blue flags out in support of these young lads.
All roads lead to Ballinamore next Sunday when we take on Aughnasheelin in the championship semi final at 2:30pm. We have had a great run in the championship after a poor 1st game and hopefully our lads can deliver another performance on Sunday. Good luck lads.
