Under 16 Semi-Final              The Downs 3:7           Moate  3:4
On Sunday morning we qualified for the under 16 A final in a closely fought and at time times nail biting game The Downs playing against the wind were first to score, but scores were quickly level. With scores proving hard to come by The Downs raised the green flag to give them a three point advantage which they held going into the break. On the resumption both sides traded points with Moate equalising through a goal. The Downs upped their game for the final quarter scoring some excellent points to regain their advantage which they held until the end. Team: Amy Dagg, Ruth Kenny, Fiona Dignan,  Aishling Egerton, Amy Staunton, Roisin Scally, Ellen Tate, Beth McGuire, Sinead Nolan, Leanne Duncan, Mary Lynam, Clara Thornton, Laura Smullen, Niamh Duncan. Subs: Niamh Rowan, Emma Murtagh, Niamh Staunton, Orla Gavin, Emma Raleigh,  Well done to Bernie who had the team well prepared and ready for the game.
