NATIONAL FINALS: Last weekend we had our U 13 Girls Futsal team in action in the National Finals in Athlone.They played their semi-final on Saturday against the Ulster champions Donaghmoyne from Monaghan. The got off to the worst possible start and found themselves 3 goals down within the first seven minutes. To their credit they battled on and got back a goal before half time. In the second half they played much better and scored midway through the half. They tried everything but could not get the equaliser losing on a scoreline of 3 goals to 2. On Sunday they were in the 3rd and 4th place play off against Castlebridge/Crossabeg from Wexford. In this game they again had a bad start going behind after a minute. At half time the score was 1 - 0 to the Wexford team. In the second half Wexford scored again to make it 2 - 0. Our girls them staged a great comeback and brought the score back to 2 - 2. Unfortunately they conceded 2 late goals to lost on a scoreline of 4 - 2.
