Under 14 (Amber)      The Downs  3:13        Caulry5:4
On Thursday evening last we played a home game against Caulry in the U14 championship. As we expected this was a keenly contested game. Having missed a number of chances in the first half we went into the break a few points ahead. Caulry came out very strong in the second half and scored a number of goals to level up the match. Both teams had strong patches in the second half and the game could have went either way. In the end we came out stronger and won the match 3-13 to 5-4.
