This Minor team has only been going for two years and the girls did excellent to make it to a County Final. The girls got off to a slow start in the first half of the game with Glenswilly dominating the game in many parts of the field. However, the girls came in at half time trailing by only 1 point. Buncrana came out fighting in the second half and soon were putting scores on the board and edged ahead of Glenswilly. The Glenswilly girls however did not lie down and found another gear. After finding the goals and scoring a few more excellent points the Buncrana squad just couldn’t hold on and Glenswilly took the title. The Buncrana girls played an excellent 2nd half and it was a great team performance, with some great scores from Leah Ryan, Eimear Clerkin and Aisling Brown. Louise Devlin (team captain) showed great leadership with a big performance throughout the game and Aimee Casey had another great performance between the posts. All the girls put in a massive effort and many of this team will still be playing minor next year so there is a bright future for this squad of girls.U13 HurlersThe boys in the U13 hurling had a tight competition in the “A” section of the U13 hurling competition in Derry. They were up against 2 of the top teams in the competition sleachtneil and kevin lynches. Sleachtneil were the first team the boys played which was a very fast and intense game sleachtneil had the edge over Buncrana which lead them to a win. Buncrana then played kevin lynches which ment Buncrana had to play the game back to back against Kevin lynches. Buncrana really held their own in the first half and ran out of steam in the second half. But the one thing the boys will not give up and it is always a challange for them to play the best teams in Derry when you play in the “A” division. And next week we play Dungannon and Carrickmore next week in owenbeg all support welcome U9 Boys.Our u9 boys will play in the Final of the Inishowen tournament in the Scarvey this Friday evening at 6.45pm against a strong Brian Ogs Steelstown, what is promised to be a great display of football from our young stars, should not be missed by our community.
