MILFORD: There was an U8 blitz held in Termon last Saturday with another strong performance from both teams with our B team drawing with Fanad and narrowly losing to a strong Termon side, Lorcan Blaney and Cathal Lau were impressive with Oisin McHugh and Joseph Barrett battling hard throughout. The A team kept their unbeaten record going with good victories over Gaoth Dobhair and Termon with Alec McConigley ruling from the full back line and Mikey McBride putting in a man of the match performance, the forward line of Jordan Ryan, Sean Coffey, Eamonn Toland and Anthony Curan also racked up some very impressive scores. Last Monday evening the u-12’s played Fanad in glorious conditions, in Portsalon. Both teams were unlucky not to come away with at least a share of the points. In the first match, the boys and girls staged a great second half comeback and were unlucky to go down by a few points. Best for Milford were Kelli-ann Buchanan, Jamie Lee Diver, Jake Callaghan and Conor Coll. In the second game Milford got off to a flying start with quick scores from the Rathmullan boys, Glenn Curran and Luke McAteer. However the consession of three first half goals left the boys and girls with a lot to do. The second half saw a much improved performance as both teams went toe-to-toe in a highly entertaining game. Best for Milford were Peter Curran, Luke Serrinha, Conor McHugh and Rory O’Donnell.
The ladies teams will be holding a bucket collection in Milford and Ramelton on Saturday. All support would be greatly appreciated.Fundamentals

Ní minic go dtiocfadh le club a rá go bhfuil dhá chraobh uile Éireann buailte acu ar lá amháin, ach sin mar a bhí sé i nGaoth Dobhair nuair a bhain mná an Tearmainn i gcoinne Cill Chomáin ó Mhaigh Eo chun an tríú croabh na hÉireann as a chéile a bhaint. Bhí an corn sin tógtha ag na girseacha ón chluiche ag meán lae, agus ansin bhí foireann sinsear An Tearmainn ag imirt in aghaidh Naomh Náille ag a dó. Cluiche cruinn, teannta a bhí ann ar dtús, ach le sár obair ón fhoireann ar fad, d’éirigh leo roimh leath ama cúl agus neart pointe a chur eatarthu. Lean an cluiche ar aghaidh mar an gcéanna sa dara leath, agus cé go bhfuair Naomh Náille cic éirice sa bhomaite deireanach, bhí go leor déanta ag fir An Tearmainn chun an cluiche agus an chéad Chraobh na Gaeltachta náisiúnta a thógáil na bhaile leo. Tá achan duine fíor bródúil as na foirne seo ar lá stairiúil don Tearmann. Maith sibh go léir idir imreoirí, bainistíocht agus foireann tacaíochta na bhfoireann, agus an lucht tacaíochta a thaisteal go Gaoth Dobhair, agus a bhain an oiread sin sult as na cluichí thar deireadh seachtaine ar dóigh.
