Points from L.Campball and D.McCann left the half time scores 0-8 to 05 for the home side after a very entertaining first half.  Two minutes into the second half Clan Eireann was awarded a penalty and this left both teams level. Both teams then scored a point each before Silverbridge took a three point lead with points from B.Byrnes and C.McAvoy.

Our B team travelled to Cullyhanna on Wednesday night to take on St Pats. It was St Pats who got off to great start with a goal and a point after 3 minutes. A C.Traynor point put the bridge on the score board. Another goal for St Pats left Silverbridge trailing by six points. A good move involving   B.Connolly and R.Griffin   resulted in a bridge goal. A Point from St Pats left 4 points in it after 15 minutes. Silverbridge stepped up a gear and scored 5 unanswered points leaving the half time score 2-2 to 1-6. In the second half the bridge picked off some good scores and pulled away convincing winners. This was a good all round team performance. Final score 1-15 to St Pats 2-5.


“Goals wins games” this was very much the case as silverbridge beat a strong Cavanakill team by 5-4 to 2-12 in Dorsy. With the half time score 1-7 to 1 goal in favour of the home team, the silverbridge lads needed a huge performance in the second half to make up for a poor first half. Goals from G.Rowland and P. Carragher edged us back into the game with the last kick of the game. D.Gollogy Slotted home the fifth. This was a great time proformance and hopefully can be produced again in the champship this week.

Under 10

Our under 10 team played against Killeavey on Sunday past and recorded their third win in this competitive league. The bridge team started well and by half time had established a commanding lead. At the beginning of the second period they weathered a great deal of pressure from their opponents and although Killeavey did make a spirited comeback in the final quarter the bridge youngsters held out for a deserved victory.
