Our U10’s played their final blitz of the season last Saturday at O’Donnell Park. The team played two matches against St Eunan’s and one against Glenswilly. All players played well and the team was congratulated on the player’s ball skills and superb kicking which resulted in good scores.
The under 12’s took on Cloughaneely on Sunday evening in the Northern Region Division 2 final at the Bridge.
In the first game the rain held of as the boys and girls from the Bridge put in a good performance against a Cloughaneely side weakened by injury and absence. The home side recorded a comfortable victory with captain Carlos O’Reilly leading the way. He was ably assisted by his midfield colleague Callum Friel and by the free scoring Calvin Murray up front. Overall it was a good team performance and a great reward for all this years efforts.
The second game was a closer affair with the boys and girls in Blue coming out on top. The home side battled hard with Joshua Bradley and Aoife Kelly showing well only to come up a little short. This team has improved immeasurably over the season and we are all proud of their great efforts.
The under 13’s campaign begins on Wednesday July 30th at home to Glenswilly.
The under 16’s qualified for the Northern Region Division 1 semi final on Monday evening with a comprehensive victory over Moville in Lifford.
After a close first half the Bridgemen came out fired up for the second half and soon put the game away. It was a great team performance by the boys.
The minors will play Carndonagh at the Bridge on Monday August 4th at 7.30pm.
