Under 12: The U-12 teams had a busy week in the North Tipperary Football Championship with both the Arrows and Colts in action. On Monday evening last, the Arrows took on Borrisoleigh in Lacken Park in a hotly contested quarter-final.  A strong wind at our back, together with some excellent football gave the home side a 1-4 to 0-1 lead at half-time. Borrisoleigh mounted a comeback in the second half but some resolute defending gave us a well-deserved victory on a score line of 2-5 to 1-2. This Friday, we play Silvermines in the semi-final. 

Last Monday evening the Colts played away to Templederry, and after a thrilling game, came out on top on a scoreline of 2-6 to 2-4.  Having trailed at half-time, the Colts put in a mighty effort to finish the game strong and qualify for a semi-final this Friday night against Ballina. 

Our Dynamo team will also play Nenagh this week in their divisional North quarter-final in what will be a big week for all our U-12 players.  Best of luck to all.
