Mayobridge senior team return to league action on Friday evening with an important away game against Downpatrick throw-in 7.00.pm.
Mayobridge U16 Camogie team
On Sunday Mayobridge U-16 camogie team travelled to An Riocht as holders of the Sharon Morgan Sevens Tournament and looking to win it for the second year in a row. The first match against Longstone saw the girls through after a good display of skill, determination and teamwork. Kilcoo came next and again the team rose to the occasion and won the game well. In the final group match Greenlough from Derry were the opponents and after a shaky first half the Bridge took total control and finished top of a tough group having won all their matches. In the quarter final the girls were paired with the Loup from Derry and they continued their winning streak with an admirable win. Meeting Middletown from Armagh in the semi-final was as expected a tough match but again the Bridge emerged victorious. Ballygallget were the opposition in the final and the Sky Blues knew they would be up against it and so it proved as it was the team from the Ards that won the competition as the Bridge fell short by a few points.
Despite the defeat the whole team can be very proud of their efforts and they were a credit to their club. A special mention must go to Grace Cunningham who was awarded player of the tournament. Well done Grace.
Mayobridge team was: Ceri Magone, Aoibheann Woods, Emily Fitzpatrick, Ella Gribben (Captain), Aoife Trainor, Grace Cunningham, Caitlin Coulter, Katie Rooney, Cara Crimmins, Cliona Gordon
Mayobridge U-8 Football Team
The Mayobridge U- 8 girls football team went to Saval on Sunday morning to take part in a blitz competition. The girls played five teams who were much stronger than them earlier in the season but they more than matched them in this competition which showed that the practice at training and at home is paying off. Their determination and team work is a credit to their families. Well done girls
