National Automation and FAAC Minors had an impressive win last week. There was a change to original fixture as that their opponents Kilglass/St Barrys conceded late on in the day. St Aidans obliged by bringing forward their fixture against Boyle. Boyle were in control from the start and there was some sublime points being scored by our lads. The lads ran out clear winners on a dark evening in Abbey Park to win the game 2-18 to 1-07. Well done lads and coaches.
Tough luck to the U14 boys, who were narrowly beaten by Western Gaels in Frenchpark last week. Western Gaels started the brightest and registered a very early goal to put Boyle under pressure for the rest of the first half. Western Gaels went in at half time with a 5 point lead. Boyle came out at half time a better team and steadied their ship. Boyle got themselves on level terms and then led by point in the mid way stages of the 2nd half. Both teams traded the lead for the rest of game, but Gaels shaded it in the end with a slim one point margin in this division 1 encounter. Western Gaels 3-04 Boyle 1-09.
