Seniors Defeat Leitir Mor

Seniors Defeat Leitir Mor

In the senior championship Barna defeated Leitir Mor on a scoreline of 2-10 to 0-11. In a very competitive match Barna produced a strong last quarter to win the game, on Friday evening the juniors started their championship campaign with a draw against the same opposition.

The U12 girls are nearing the end of their league campaign and the last two matches resulted in narrow defeats to Claregalway and St Furseys. Both matches were played away from home and on evenings were several players were missing resulted in the team lining out with no subs. The girls put on a great display of blocking, and attacking football which on another day would of got the win but narrowly missed out on both occasions. Two girls got injured during the games, Olivia Murphy and Aoife Lynagh and we wish them a speed recovery .

The U14 girls are about to start their league campaign in earnest with a game on Friday evening at Barna Pitch against Leitir Mor. Throw in is at 7 and support would be appreciated for the girls .

The Ladies tried unsuccessfully on Sunday evening to replicate what the senior team did on Sunday by winning against Leitir Mor. The game was played on their pitch on Sunday evening and with only sixteen ladies to choose from due to exams and work commitments it was an
uphill battle from the start. The home side took an early lead which they would not relinquish and although the Barna Ladies improved in the second half , the lead was not in sight and Leitir Mor ran out winners on the night.
