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.

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.
