Mini 7s Success!
“An rud is annamh is iontach!”
The Area 8 Mini 7s trophy will spend (some of) the winter in Craggagh for the first time ever following today’s blitz in Swinford.
A combined team of Craggagh and Straide emerged victorious from a pulsating day’s sport. Victories in the early rounds against Meelick and Midfield/Culmore saw Craggagh/Straide coming up against Foxford NS in the final. Foxford had come through two epic encounters themselves having edged out Kiltimagh in their opening game and being brought to extra time by Bohola.
Extra time was needed again in the final thanks to a great comeback in the second half by Craggagh/Straide who were trailing by 4 points at half time.
In the end, Craggagh/Straide prevailed by 3 points in a hugely entertaining game. Credit must go to both teams for such a great contest.
Meanwhile, our girls were unlucky to miss out on completing a double, going down in the final to an excellent Bohola team.
Our girls’ path to the final was similar to that of the boys, defeating Meelick in the first round and edging out Midfield/Culmore in the semi-final.
The final saw Bohola win out by 3 points in a very keenly contested game.
Many thanks to those who organised today’s events, teachers, referees and all who helped out.
We await confirmation of who the boys will play next.
