Kilcoo club notes – 16th April 2012
The Senior Camogie team started their league campaign with a win after they beat Castlewellan 2-8 to 2-2. This was a great team performance with the forwards hitting some great scores and the defence played very well from the goalie outwards. The midfield worked extremely hard all night at both ends of the pitch and also chipped in with a few scores. A fantastic team display from all the team and including the substitutes who came on.
The Under 14 and Under 16 boys both suffered losses in their league games at the hands of Kilclief and Saval respectively.
The Seconds kept up their 100% record with a win against Rostrevor.
The Seconds B team had two games in three days. They beat Tullylish on Thursday night but lost on Saturday against Clann Na Banna.
The Senior Footballers started off their league campaign with a draw with Bryansford on Friday night.
Congratulations to the minors who the Silverbridge sevens on Saturday. On their path they beat Roche, Cullyhanna, drew with Burren then beat Silverbridge in the final by 9 points.
The Ladies started their league campaign with a draw against Mayobridge on Saturday night.
The Under 14 girls started their league campaign on Sunday against Bryansford. Even though it ended in defeat the girls played really well throughout.
