Results: Under 14 Semi-Final              The Downs 6:8           Delvin/St Pauls 2:4
On Sunday evening in Mullingar Shamrocks we qualified for the under 14 final with an excellent team  display and many players  giving their best performance of the season. Playing against the wind in the first half The Downs had to work hard to turn possession into scores and the defence despite strong pressure kept scoring opportunities to a minimum. With the wind in the second half The Downs increased their lead with some excellent scores. Well done to all the girls and Peter and Kevin who are back in an under 14 final again this year.
The Ladies Football are collecting bags of clothes as a fundraiser, so you can now de- clutter and help the club raise funds. Bags are available from any team coach or committee member or in The Shop.
