Underage Results

Our U13’s were busy this week with both teams in action. We are delighted to be able to field 2 teams at this age grade giving all our players plenty of game time. On Wednesday evening our Division 1 team played Garrycastle at home. The lads put in an excellent performance on all fronts and came away convincing winners. On Thursday evening the Division 4 squad travelled to Loughnavalley to face Lilliput Gaels. Despite scoring 2-15 the lads unfortunately were one point short at the final whistle in a very entertaining game of football. Hard luck lads.

On Friday evening the U15’s travelled to Ballinagore to play Lilliput Gaels in what was always going to be a keenly contested match. The Downs got scores at crucial stages in both halves to overcome a gallant Lilliput Gaels side.

LGFA Féile 2023

The Downs was the venue for the U15 Division 2 Féile on Sunday of the Bank Holiday Weekend. The Downs were pitted against Mullingar Shamrocks and Caulry in the group stages. The panel of players turned in two fantastic performances to find themselves group winners qualifying for the semi-finals. The opposite side of the draw left St. Joseph’s in 2nd place following Ballycomoyle in 1st (Milltownpass/Milltown were the other participating clubs) which meant that we faced St. Josephs in the semis. The girls started off very well and went toe to toe with a strong St. Josephs outfit. The girls from Streamstown however went ahead by two points late in the game leaving The Downs chasing the win. Although we had a number of chances, we unfortunately couldn’t catch the opposition despite a massive effort. Hard luck to all who worked tirelessly, it just wasn’t our day!! Congratulations to St. Joseph’s who progressed to the final. We would like to thank all those that helped in any way to make the event a huge success. From Laurie, Marie, Muriel and Aoibhinn in the cuppa hut, to all that provided refreshments to all the parents/mentors/supporters who supported us on the day. The pitches and facilities were once again in top order and special mention to Paul Moore for leading the charge on all fronts. Another proud day for us all here at the club!

LGFA Results

Our U16s were also in action against Kilbeggan away in the League on Thursday evening last. Our girls turned in a terrific performance and earned themselves a good win away from home. Well done to all involved.
