The Aodh Ruadh U-13s were at home last Saturday to St Naul’s. In another absolute thriller of a match the Ballyshannon boys got straight down to business taking a huge lead with scores from captain Dylan Gallagher (1-2), Evan McTernan (2-0), Michael McKenna (3-3), John Connor McGarrigle (0-1), Owen Doherty (0-1) and a cracker of a goal from a very difficult angle by corner forward Caolán Dolan (1-0).

After an outstanding performance the score stood at 5-5 to 1-3 in favour of the Aodh Ruadh men at the half time whistle. The second half started with St Naul’s coming back very strong and they closed the gap very quick with no reply coming from the Aodh Ruadh lads for the first ten minutes.

Vital decisions were going against the lads and the loss of Dylan Gallagher did not help matters. However the home team dug deep and a touch of brilliance came from Evan McTernan at full forward who made a beautiful high catch and buried the ball in the back of the net for a goal that sealed the win for the Ernesiders. The final whistle saw a final score line of Aodh Ruadh 7-7 St Naul’s 5-9 and the homesters earn a hard fought four point win.

Outstanding performances on the day came from Mark Gallagherin goals who saved a penalty in the dying minutes of the game, Pauric Keenaghan, Odhran Kennedy, Aaron Peach, Cianán Roper and Senan Rooney who were all great in defence.

Well done to the U-12 girls who saved their best till last with great performances against Four Masters, St Naul’s and Bundoran out at the blitz in Bundoran on Friday evening.

The U-16 Hurlers won the county Championship on Sunday against Carndonagh, in Burt.

Much of the credit for this victory must go to manager Jamesie Donnelly and selector Eamon McAuley for instilling discipline and belief in this young team. These players’ commitment, work ethic

The U-12 hurlers had an emphatic win in their League Final against Carndonagh in Mac Cumhaill Park last week. The Mac Cumhaills mid-field of Josh McGhee and Joel Bradley Walsh dominated from the throw in. With only minutes gone, Mac Cumhaills were 2 points up.This was quickly followed by points from Joel Bradley-Walsh, Dylan Crossan and Josh Mc Ghee and some excellent frees won and converted by Tommy-Lee Scully.

The home side entered the half-time break comfortably ahead. Carndonagh started the second half a bit brighter, getting the first score of the half with a well taken free, which was followed up by a long range point from play. The resultant puck out was well won by Eoghan Gillespie, who rounded his man and soloed the sliotar 30 meters down field. Although the sliotar was lost in the tackle, it was quickly recycled and converted into another Mac Cumhaills point. The Mac Cumhaills boys were determined to see the contest out from this point, taking points from distance, seemingly at will and netting a further number of times.

The excellent hurling skills of the home team, allied with their immense work rate and manly hurling meant that victory in this contest was never in doubt. Congratulations to this team of skilled and hard working boys.

The third team had a fine win over Glenswilly.
