Antrim Junior quarter-final
Friday 22nd August
Brídíní Óga Glenravel 0-7 Creggan 2-13
After last night’s heroics in Ahoghill we hoped to push on with the Junior championship tonight, but a combination of illness before the game and injuries and illness during it set us back a bit.
Nevertheless we managed to put together a decent performance especially during the first half after which we turned around 1-4 to 0-4 down. We still kept going during the second half and worked hard for each other.
While it is disappointing to exit any championship, this group has done well. We won Division 3 and gained promotion and had a good preliminary game last week against St Paul’s. Younger players such as Ciara and Ellie have really come through strongly with this group and will be good senior panellists next year, while some who played Intermediate last night made a lot of progress on this team during the league.
There is definitely a good solid foundation and hopefully we can build on this next year with more consistency at training.
So we sign off having played 12 competitive league and championship games and this was our only defeat. Well done, girls.
