Football
U10 Girls:
Mc Glone Tournament, Belfast - 
Our girls had an early start on Sunday morning, 18th June, with everyone out of their bed before 7am, but this didn't seem to affect them in the slightest!
Their first match against Aodh Ruadh of Dungannon started just after 10am. The girls started strongly and had a great win. 
Final score: 5-3 to 0-2 
Their second game was against St Galls, the host club, but our girls were on a roll and with some great scores from Aine, Heidi, Aoife, Emer, Clara and Abaigh our girls had another excellent win. 
Final score; 5-5 to 2-0 
The next game was against Brian Ógs of Steelstown and our were still going strong. The defenders in particular shone in this game and held the Derry side scoreless! During this match our super keeper, Ella Porter, took a wee spin out the field and managed to get herself on the scoresheet from the back line! 
Final Score: 4-1 to 0-0 
As soon as the Steelstown game was over the girls were straight back out on the field to play Clann Eireann of Armagh. The girls battled hard and it was the closest game the Armagh side had had all day. Unfortunately despite the girls best efforts they lost this one. 
Final Score: 0-1 to 2-4 
Their final group game was against St.Egrats and despite the heat (and slight mix up about the pitch) our girls settled into the game and got the result. The defenders led by Hannah McLoughlin held the opposition to a single score. It was a tight and intense game, with both teams knowing the winners would progress to the Cup.
Final Score: 1-2 to 0-1
After coming second in their group our girls qualified for the Cup, they came up against St Galls other team. The warm day and early start was visibly beginning to take its toll. Our girls had suffered a number of knocks at this stage but they battled on! Despite their efforts, the girls were outscored 10 scores till 2.
This meant the days football was over, but to come top eight in a competition with 23 of the best teams from all over Ulster and Leinster was absolutely excellent!
The girls can all be very proud of their efforts, especially when you consider the fact that 7 of our 15 are still underage next year! And some of our more senior U10s were unavailable today.
Well done to all of you, excellent footballers and even more importantly, super wee ladies!! 
Thanks to all the Mammies, Daddies, brothers & sisters for travelling today! Your help & support was greatly appreciated!
 
U12 Girls:
Buncrana V Urris - Inishowen Semi Final - 
Hard luck to our girls on missing out on a final spot after losing to Urris tonight. 
None of the girls could be faulted and they all tried their absolute best.
They were unlucky in front of the net at times, with the Urris keeper being forced to pull off a lot of saves!
It was anybody’s game at half time with the score level ...  
Buncrana 1-05 Urris 2-02 
Unfortunately despite the full backs working really hard and goalkeeper Moya making a number of good saves; we conceded a couple of goals early in the second half, giving Urris a bit of breathing space. 
But the girls worked hard to close the gap, scoring three points in quick reply.
Sadly today it just wasn't enough.
As the old saying goes - Goals win games!
Final score Buncrana 1-09 to Urris 5-05
 
U8 Boys:
Buncrana V Burt - 
Our U8s hosted Burt in The Scarvey on Saturday morning, 24th June.
It was a great morning of football with some very good teamwork and skill on display from both sides.  
Thanks to Burt for travelling.  
Thanks to all the parents for the sandwiches, to the crew who made the tea, etc... and to the referees.   
We are away in Malin next weekend.
 
U12 Boys:
Buncrana V Muff - 
The most recent round of matches in the Gerry O'Neill Memorial Cup took place in The Scarvey on Tuesday evening, 20th June, when the boys took on Naomh Padraig, Muff . 
The B Team took to the field first but had a very slow start and were behind at the break but a determined talented team played much better in the second half before going down to a single point in what turned out to be a very competitive game. 
The A Team too had a slow start and as in the first game were down at half time but the second half performance was immense but eventually going down by two points.
The lads were unlucky to have lost both games but lessons were learned that you have to start quickly in these games. 
Again thanks to parents and families for the support and help. 
Next scheduled match is Tuesday 27th at home to Carndonagh.

U16:
Buncrana V Burt - 
Our U16 hurlers began their season by hosting Burt in The Scarvey on Thursday evening, 22nd June. 
The match started in a typical ‘first match of the season’ style with momentum swing from one team to the other. 
Our lads were on top for the first 10 minutes of the game, getting 3 scores as well as a number of wides. The boys then lost there shape and this allowed Burt to take advantage and put 1-3 on the scoreboard with no reply from Buncrana.
Our younger hurlers then reorganised themselves and got a goal back. Which meant it was all square at half time; 1-3 a piece.
The Buncrana boys were on top for the majority of the second half and put another 1-3 to their tally for the night. While Burt managed two more points from frees.
Final Score; Buncrana 2-6 Burt 1-5
