The Area continue to be involved in the outdoor team events. The under 10 footballers will meet a team from Ballycanew this week in round 2 while the Kilmore girls conceded to the girls under 12 footballers as they had only 10 players and this puts the girls into the semi-final. The under 12 boys Soccer side went down 81 to a strong Enniscorthy side last week. Team members were Liam Evans, David Harte, Kyle Ferguson-Murphy, Aaron Doyle, Nathan O`Rourke, Mark Doyle, Dion Donovan, Cathal Devereux, Oran Maddock and Liam Banville.

The under 12 girls soccer side took on a team from Taghmon and came through on a 4-0 scoreline. The team were comfortably 3-0 up at half time and sealed the game with a fourth goal in the second half to win out. Goal scorers were Siobhan Doolan (2) Sinead Ronan-John (1) and Laura Campbell (1). The full panel of players consisted of Fiona Kinsella, Sadbh McCarthy, Chloe Mythen, Finola Monahan, Sarah Kenny-Harding, Mickaela Lanigan, Ailish Neville, Cationa Kinsella, Kirsty Fanning, Sinead Ronan-John, Siobhan Doolan and Laura Campbell. This puts the team into the semi-final.

The under 11 hurlers bowed out of the competition last week going down by just one point to a team from Craanford. This was a very sporting game and with just a couple of minutes to go to full time, Castlebridge/Crossabeg were awarded two long frees which just went wide of the crossbar. The final score was 3-4 to Craanford 2-6 to Castlebridge/Crossabeg.

The under 12 and under 14 Skittles teams will both play teams from Taghmon in the semi-finals and these matches have been fixed for May 4 in Taghmon. The matches are set for 3.30 p.m and 5 p.m.
