GAA NEWS

Our adult Hurl­ing and Foot­ball teams were in ac­tion last week in the cham­pi­onship and both came away un­de­feated.

First up was our Ju­nior Hurlers, who faced a tough as­sign­ment away to Gle­nealy in Gle­nealy last Wed­nes­day night. Af­ter fall­ing be­hind early in the game we came back strongly and at half­time were be­hind 1-6 to 0-6.In the sec­ond half we up the ante and in a very close game we came out on top on a score­line of 2-12 to 2-9 in favour of Aughrim. Well done to all in­volved. We play Bray in the next round at home Wed­nes­day, August 28.

Our adult foot­ballers faced Bless­ing­ton in the cham­pi­onship last Satur­day evening in Round­wood. Af­ter a dis­as­trous first half which saw us con­ced­ing three goals, we trailed by five points at half time on a score­line of 3-8 to 2-6. A huge im­prove­ment in per­for­mance by all and some ef­fec­tive sub­sti­tu­tions by the man­age­ment team led to a great re­vival and the game fin­ished all square at the fi­nal whis­tle on a score­line of Aughrim 2-17 to En­niskerry 3-14. Our next game is against Shil­le­lagh/Cool­boy next Satur­day at 4.45 p.m. The venue to be con­firmed. Please come along and sup­port.
