Bord Na nOg
Our minors played St Eunans today in the first round of the league. Unfortunately this saw Buncrana player Paddy Wilson pick up a head injury. This resulted in the game not finishing. Many thanks to Johnny and Stephen and the management of St Eunans for their help at the time. We are happy to report that Paddy is now fine. It was great to see the unity of all involved. Training continues on Tuesday and Thursday night. Be on pitch for 7.30pm. The next outing is to Glenswilly next Sunday and a trip after to the Donegal v Roscommon game.
The U16’s made the long 3 hour trip to play Crossmaglen Rangers today. The long trip took it’s toll as the home side settled well and were clinical in their finishing and took a 1-3 to 0-0 lead in the first 20 minutes. The Buncrana boys were up for the physical challenge but had left their shooting boots on the bus with the Cross keeper saving 3 point blank goals….Buncrana then dominated the final 10mins of the half and scored 1-2. Half time score
1-6 to 1-3. The second half was again even (alot of changes from both sides) with the home side again just been that more accurate in the final third. The final score of 2-9 to 2-6. This was a high quality and tough encounter with the Buncrana boys all taking something away from the game. Very proud of the hard work the lads put in today. The hospitality from Crossmaglen was excellent….and many thanks to them today.
