Under 12 Football
Our under 12 boys played a challenge match on Saturday morning in Buncrana – their first game of the season. With 25 Carn players there was a great effort from both teams.
Under 14 Hurling
Our under 14 Hurlers made the trip to Magherafelt on Saturday for an Ulster GAA indoor blitz. Being Donegals sole representative, the boys competed and played admirably against some traditionally ‘strong’ hurling clubs.
The day started with a 3-1 defeat against Ballinascreen, but as with any first game it was tough to get going due to the long journey. But the slickness and precise passing from Ballinascreen got the better of the Carn team.
Game 2 was against Tulach Og, a team this age group played in the U13 Tain League in October and again another tough encounter was on the cards. With only goals counting, it was score for score and it was only a last minute goal that saved a point for Carn as they drew the game 3-3.
Next up was Carryduff, another team from the Tain League in October. With the displays getting better and touches improving it was obvious the games were doing good for the Carn boys. They achieved their first win of the day and well deserved at that aswell, 2-1 the final score.
Sarsfields from Belfast were to provide the stiffest of match ups. Physically a lot stronger than our lads they found it tough to get it to the other end to threaten their goal although great defending kept the score low at 2-0.
To finish up, a game against Belnaleck which was one the boys wanted to finish strong on, and they did with flying colours. Link up play along with the defending were key to getting a 3-1 victory to finish up what was a great days hurling.
Training continues on Thursday night from 6-7.30pm in preparation for the league which starts in a couple of weeks.
Thanks to Siobhan Devlin and Fergal O’Carroll for volunteering to travel up with the players.
Team: Brendan O’Carroll, Ben McDaid, Odhran O’Donnell, Oran Lafferty, Davin McLaughlin, Cormac McGinn, Daire Tully, Liam Doherty, Phillip Devlin, Josh Clarke, Danny Diver.
