Mayobridge senior team suffered an agonising one point defeat at the hands of visitors Loughinisland on Friday evening, the final score line reading 2-14 to 2-13. This was a very closely fought contest the whole way through and the Bridge had two late chances to at least square the match but both were wasted.

The Mayobridge U14 football team returned to league action on Monday last and recorded a fine win over Atticall, 3-15 to 4-7. Playing against a strong wind in the first half, the Bridge struggled to get in to the game and trailed by three points mid-way through the half. Gradually the Sky Blues began to find their feet and at the break they only a point separated the sides
Atticall started strongly in the second half and stunned the home team with a goal in the first minute. This appeared to shake the Bridge boys in to action and for the next 25 minutes they dominated all over the field scoring 2-11 and conceding only 2 points. Two late goals from Atticall brought the score line closer but the Sky Blues closed out the game for a deserved win.
Mayobridge team and scorers: Conor Pollard, Ciaran McPolin, Arann Trotter, Paddy Clyde, Conor Keenan, Shan Hillen, Conor Colhoun, Danny Cunningham (0-6), Senan Magone (0-2), Daniel McMahon (0-2), Tristan Downey, Daire O’Keeffe (0-1), Ben Kelly (1-0), Cory Clerkin (1-0), Patrick Woods (1-4), Aaron Doyle, Keith Rice, Ryan Magee, Peter Little, Darragh Poland , Ryan Cahill, Michael Gallagher, Cory Magone, Pierce Cuthbert
