Girls U12s start their league campaign with a win

The U12 Barna girls got their league campaign off to a winning start
against Clonbur on Wednesday in perfect sunny conditions. The Barna
girls having only started back after the winter rest continued on
their winning ways with an impressive win over a sporting clonbur
team. With a small panel to start off at this early stage which
hopefully more girls will get involved as the team has huge potential
to reach new heights and surpass last years achievements. The league
game  provided girls with a great opportunity to play football with
all girls taking an active part in the game. Any new girls born in
2000 or 2001 are very welcome to take part .

The U16 girls made the long trek to Clifden on Sunday to play Grainne
Mhaols in what was a closer game then the score line indicates, the
Barna girls settled into the game early and scored some fine points
before any reply from the home team. Grainne Mhaols began to play some
fine football and secured 4 points with Barna taking a slender lead
into the second half by two points. The second half started well for
Barna but the home team found a new spirit and went into the lead with
10 minutes left, this spurred the Barna girls on and they jumped ahead
again in style by scoring several goals with the final score of 1-8
for the home team and 5-8 for the Barna ladies.

The U11 team are playing in the half time match at Pearse Stadium this
Sunday. Throw in time is 2.30 and entrance is free to kids up to aged
