ST MARY’S

THE weather on Mon­day may have been dread­ful, but the 2 matches played in Kent Park would brighten any even­ing. The first match was an U16 Boys Cham­pi­onship game be­tween Mary’s and Tourlestrane. The con­test was played at an in­cred­i­ble pace with both sides in­tent on win­ning. Through­out the sea­son our U16 lads have shown well only to be edged in the lat­ter stages, and when they went 4 points down in the last 5 min­utes, spec­ta­tors feared the worst. How­ever, the team re­sponded and 2 goals that would grace any game gave the vic­tory to St Mary’s. Well done to ev­ery­one and keep the mo­men­tum go­ing. After­wards, St Mary’s U14 girls played East­ern Harps in their Cham­pi­onship. The con­di­tions, if any­thing, wors­ened, yet the sides bat­tled hard through­out, un­til St Mary’s stretched their win­ning mar­gin. Next up for th­ese Girls is Drum­cliffe/ Rosses Point on Mon­day in Ox­field. We had been an­tic­i­pat­ing the U12 A league fi­nal on Tues­day night against Sham­rock Gaels, but the weather caused a de­fer­ral and this fi­nal will now take place on this Tues­day ( 29th). The U12 Di­vi­sion three 3rd place play- off against Drum­cliffe- Rosses Point also fell to the weather and will take place the same even­ing. Again best wishes to the lads and their man­age­ment, and come to Markievicz to sup­port them. On Thurs­day the U16 girls played their sec­ond match of the “A” Cham­pi­onship when Drum­cliffe/ Rosses Point vis­ited Kent Park in­tent on get­ting re­venge for the league fi­nal de­feat. It was a great game of foot­ball and while the score­board did show a con­vinc­ing win for Marys on a score­line of 7- 11 to 3- 07 it was a closer con­test played in a skil­ful and sport­ing man­ner through­out. St Mary’s next match is away to St Far­nans this Thurs­day. On the same even­ing the Mi­nor boys had Cham­pi­onship against Castle­con­nor, but were un­able to over­come their op­po­nents who took the game by 3- 11 to 2- 06. The men Ju­nior side opened their Cham­pi­onship with a highly com­mend­able draw away against Sham­rock Gaels. In a low scor­ing game, chances were at a premium and we had to bat­tle to get 8 points to match Sham­rock Gaels 1- 05. Both sides rued missed op­por­tu­ni­ties but in the end will be sat­is­fied to start the Cham­pi­onship on a pos­i­tive note. Next week prom­ises to be busy for the Club as in ad­di­tion to the U12 finals and the other matches listed ear­lier, our U14 boys will visit Ballymote for their U14 A Cham­pi­onship semi- fi­nal, Con­grat­u­la­tions and best wishes to all stu­dents who re­ceived leav­ing cer­tifi­cate re­sults re­cently and we trust that they were sat­is­fac­tory for 3rd lev­els stud­ies and other ca­reer op­tions.

ST MO­LAISE GAELS

OUR Boys U11 squad play in the resched­uled Di­vi­sion III County fi­nal this Tues­day even­ing August 29th against East­ern Harps in Markievicz Park at 6.00pm. We hope to see good sup­port for the squad who have shown great form through­out the com­pe­ti­tion. On Wed­nes­day even­ing at the same venue our U12 Boys have a Shield 3rd/ 4th Play- off clash against Cool­era/ Strand­hill. On Thurs­day last our U16 Girls had a thrilling 8- 07 to 7- 09 win away to CT Gaels in the cham­pi­onship. On the same even­ing in dif­fi­cult un­der­foot con­di­tions at Mon­signor Hynes Park our Mi­nor Boys se­cured a semi fi­nal spot in the Cham­pi­onship fol­low­ing a fine 1- 13 to 0- 08 win against Sham­rock Gaels. Well done to Paul Healy and his team for their hard work in the days lead­ing up to the game in en­sur­ing the pitch was playable. Our U16 Boys con­tin­ued their A cham­pi­onship chal­lenge with a fine 5- 14 to 2- 03 win at home to Ballymote/ Bun­ni­nad­den. Our ju­nior men made it two wins from two in the B Cham­pi­onship Group I fol­low­ing a very im­pres­sive vic­tory away to Easkey on Sun­day last. Martin Feeney and Eoghan Brady contributed 3- 10 be­tween them as the Mick McEl­lig­ott man­aged side se­cured a semi fi­nal spot in the com­pe­ti­tion. This Fri­day even­ing Sept 1st our U14 Boys are at home to Curry in the A cham­pi­onship semi fi­nal with a 6.30 throw in at Mon­signor Hynes Park. We hope for a large home sup­port as the team look to make this years A fi­nal. Our an­nual “Cash for Clob­ber” fundraiser will con­clude shortly. If any­one has old clothes and footwear that they don’t need the Club would be de­lighted to take th­ese. Goods can be left at the Club rooms dur­ing our Par­ish

Calry/ St Joseph’s U13 Girls De­vel­op­ment Squad re­cently rep­re­sented Ire­land in an In­ter­na­tional Com­pro­mise Rules game against a Span­ish se­lec­tion. Cap­tained by Kate Moyles, the girls fought hard for every ball and led hand­somely af­ter the 2nd quar­ter. The Spa­niards came to terms with the sys­tem and fought their way back into the game in the 3rd Cham­pi­onship Quar­ter, but the Calry/ St Joseph’s girls held up in the last quar­ter and although outscored, they had enough of a cush­ion to hold on for vic­tory. Thanks to Michelle Tier­nan for set­ting the game up.
