Annaghdown lead at the break 1-7 to 1-5.

Ladies Football
It was a disappointing week in the office for Annaghdown ladies  football last week. Firstly our U16’s suffered defeat against a strong Glenamaddy side in the Championship semi-final on Monday night, then on Tuesday evening  the U 12’s travelled to Moycullen and they also were defeated.
In the U12 game Moycullen had started well, but we fought back and were only two
points down at half time.  However Moycullen came out all guns blazing in the second half and we never recovered. Well done to the U12’s in progressing to that stage!

The U 14’s travelled to Caherlistrane on Thursday evening for the replay of the quarter final of the Championship.  We started well and continued to lead for most of the first half but Caherlistrane drew level just before half time.  They started the econd half well and it was nip and tuck between both sides up to the final whistle but alas Caherlistrane progressed to the semi-finals! The effort, commitment and spirit of the players and Tom, their manager was very evident on the night – a fine display of football girls!
Our Minors began their Championship hopes on Tuesday evening where they met Glinsk in Cregg – full results next week.

Our Intermediates are into the League Final where they will meet Tuam/Cartoon – date and venue as yet to be confirmed!

The Maureen Faherty Memorial Cup will be played this Sunday 30th Sept at 12.15p.m. In Cregg.  All u10’s and U12’s are asked to be in attendance.  After the match they are being brought on their annual outing – please bring €2 for the bus
