On Sunday we competed in the Under 13 Football western semi finals in Division 1 & 3. We played St. Pats in Abbeyside, this was a tough competitive affair with scores scarce in the first half, and had a 6 point lead at half time.  In the second half we played better and came away with a win, with a score line of 2-10 to 0-5. Our second team travelled to Ardmore later that morning.  Our lads started well and the teams were evenly match of the first 15 mins, after this Adrmore scored a few quick goals and from the point were always in control, our boys battled to the end but it was the home team record a deserved win.
