Four Masters GAA

Weekly Notes 11th June 2018

The Four Masters U9 boys made the short trip to the border town of Pettigo to take on and home side and near neighbours Naomh Brid in an U10 blitz on Saturday morning. With our U10 first team away in Crossmaglen, we still managed to field 2 teams with the other clubs having only one team each. The matches were extremely competitive with excellent defending, tackling and forward play by all our boys. The A team on the day matched their U10 oppisition and came away with a win against Naomh Brid and a draw against Pettigo and coming away overall winners. The B team on the day, including some U8 players, were very compeditive against the same opposition. A great mornings football and thanks to Pettigo for hosting and all who attended and helped out.

 

U8 & U10 girls
Four Masters U8 & U10 girls took on near neighbours St Nauls in Tirconnaill Park on Tuesday evening.We fielded 3 teams, 2 x U10s and 1 x U8s. It was the first outing of the year with some girls representing the Four Masters for the first time. A great effort from all the girls and coaches, thanks to all who helped out this evening. There will be more matches in the coming weeks. 

 

Under 12 Girls
On Tuesday evening our U12 girls treated us to another entertaining game in Tir Chonaill Park. On a very changeable evening, they played out a commendable draw with McChumhaills in a friendly game. All 24 girls got some gametime against a bigger & stronger team.  There was never more than a few points between the teams in a game that ebbed & flowed in both directions. The Four Masters girls showed great determination & some fantastic teamwork to create a lot of good scoring opportunities.  Our defence was very solid with the girls reading the game well and ensuring they were first to the ball.  If it wasn’t for some great saves by the McChumhaills goalkeeper we could have won the match but with a result of 0-14 to 2-08, we are delighted with a draw.
