Our u13 girls suffered defeat in their first match of the league to a much stronger Urris side in Clonmany. With Red Hugh's only able to field 13 with players missing due to other commitments it was always going to be an uphill struggle. However the 13 that was available give a good account of themselves and are a credit to the club with their never give up attitude to the final whistle. Jessica Hamilton on her debut match for Red Hugh's took the No. 1 jersey and had no less than four point blank saves. The back line and half backs consisted of Demi-Leigh Thompson, Ciara Gallagher (1pt), Ellen OBrien, Abbie Gallen and Emma Neeson all put in an impressive shift considering the wet playing ground; Niamh Browne (1pt) and Lauryn Doherty (3pts ) took the midfield role and both impressed on the amount of ground covered both were at each end of the pitch scoring and defending. Ella McConnell, Aoife Doherty, Aine Cullen, Caitlin Campbell (1goal) and Jessica McBride (1goal) were the forwards for the match with each assisting the scorers. The next match is away to Downings on Saturday
Under 16 girls: The girls played Bundoran last Friday. These young girls had another competitive game in division two, were against strong winds in the first half and were unfortunate with missing a few scores as well. We had a controversial goal disallowed in first half because of square ball rule. But the girls never gave up the fight. There has been a lot of improvement throughout the league.
Team: Zara Gibson, Aoife Bradley, Allanah Sweeney, Kassey Throne Beasley, Lauren McMenamin, Caitlin Geary 0-1, Hannah McMenimen 0-1, Danielle Jansen, Maddison White, Aimee Callaghan 0-1, Tori O Hagan1-1, Farragh Campbell1-0, Serena Meritt 0-1, Kieva Harvey, Kerri Fullen and Ciara Gallagher.
Hard luck to our minors who exited the championship on Wednesday evening. The boys played exceptionally well and can feel very unfortunate to not making the semi final. One kick of the ball really was what was between the sides. Thanks to the players and coaches for their hard work and commitment throughout the year.

This week it was our U10 boys who take pride of place. Coaches Liam Cunningham and Jim Boner took their charges to letterkenny Gaels for their tournament on Saturday. Our A team had a great day with victories over the hosts, Glenfin and Mc Cumhaills before finally losing out to an excellent Buncrana team in the Cup Final by 1 point. While the boys were of course disappointed there was some reward with the outstanding Ruairi Conaghan taking home the player of the tournament award.
Our B team were not to be out done and a clean sweep of victories over Gaels, Glenfin, Buncrana, Mc Cumhaills and Gaoth Dobhair in the final to take the Cup back to Termon, well done boys on some fantastic performances. A huge thanks to Letterkenny Gaels for what was a great day's football and to Jim and Liam for the hard work they have done with these boys in recent weeks and months. This week it's back to basics with coaching, more details later in the week.
Our U6s and U8s return to action this weekend Conall will send details out in the next few days.
Despite losing out to our hosts on Sunday evening, our U13 boys' second team had a great run out in their opening game of their league competition. Gary Mc Gettigan, Patrick Fegan, Emmet Mc Gettigan, Oisin Farrell and Oran Mc Menamin were to the fore in what was a high scoring match. The boys really enjoyed getting to play in the wide open spaces of O'Donnell Park and there is undoubtedly a huge amount to be gained by entering this team in the league.
Well done to our U14 boys who qualified for the Donegal U14 Div 2 Championship when they defeated Carndonagh on Monday night in a hard fought Quarter final at The Burn Road. Ardara will provide the opposition with the game due to be played next Monday.
Hard luck to our U16 boys who lost out to Sean Mc Cumhaills in their opening Div 1 Championship game on Friday last. In what was an excellent performance, especially in the second half where the boys out scored the host despite being a player down. It doesn't get any easier, such is life in Div 1, as our boys will travel to Gaoth Dobhair this Friday. Good luck boys.
We wish Bobby Mc Gettigan a speedy recovery following his broken wrist which he sustained at Saturdays NRB U15 coaching. Bobby joins Patrick Mc Daid from our U14 squad in the recovery department who broke his arm in last weeks U14 NRB Final, get well soon boys.
Good luck to our Minor boys who take on Fanad Gaels tomorrow evening Wednesday in Milford in the All County Minor Div 2 Semi final. It took extra time to separate our boys and N Colmcille in a shoot out in last week's Quarter final. Good luck tomorrow boys.
