St Peters club notes – 9th April 2012
Knockbridge too hot for ‘Point Hurlers
Knockbridge Senior Hurlers proved themselves too hot for host team St. Peter’s, Warrenpoint in a very competitive, but sporting Tain Ulster Hurling league game played at Pairc Liam Ui Ir on Saturday afternoon. Knockbridge got off to a great start, and totally dominated the opening half, with the half-time score being 0-3 to 1-10.
Warrenpoint re-organised at the start of the second half, with Mark Rafferty moving to centre half back, and Micheal Cunningham going to centre-half forward. The ‘Point played much better in the second half, and perhaps were unlucky not to score at least two goals. Indeed, Warrenpoint matched their opponents score in the second half, with the final score being 0-13 t0 3-14. Best for the Blues were goalkeeper Liam Boyle, full-back Chris Teague and left-half back Liam Rice. Both teams now advance to the semi-final stage of the League Competition.
The Point Gets Jiggy – Update
Due to popular demand and a now sold out first show on Saturday 21 April, The Point Get’s Jiggy dancers will now perform in a second show on Sunday 22 April 2012, in The Whistledown Hotel, Warrenpoint. This show will begin at 6 30pm to allow children to attend. Tickets are priced £8 and can be obtained from any dancer or committee member.
Injury has made an appearance again and this time Matthew Teague has had to retire his dancing shoes for a cast instead. Unfortunately Matthew broke his leg last week and can no longer dance. Matthew is being replaced by fellow hurler Mickey O’Sullivan. Hopefully this will be 3rd time lucky for his partner Aoife Burns who has lost partners Conor D’arcy and Matthew due to injury. We wish both dancers a speedy recovery.
Great Win for Under-16 Camogs
Warrenpoint Under-16 Camogs won in their first match of the season when they took on Mayobridge / Aghaderg on Tuesday 3 April at Milltown Playing Fields.
The match started with a slight fall of snow which soon culminated in a snow storm reducing visibly greatly. However Warrenpoint did not let the weather defeat them and continued on to a fantastic 8-06, 0-01 win. This is a great start to the season for a team which comprises a lot of young but talented players and is hopefully a sign of great things to come.

U10’s Commence Match Season.
Cumann Pheadair Naofa U10 Gaels and Ogs got their season off to a good start with both teams drawing against Rostrevor on Saturday last. The Warrenpoint Gaels and Ogs displayed promising skill and flair for their first game. The U10 team management is optimistic that the large panel who are showing commitment will perform well in the coming months.
