AGB U8 and U10 girls travelled to Tinaheley on Saturday morning to play in a Blitz. There was a great performance by all the girls, and an excellent display of football.
AGB U14 Boys travelled to Blessington GAA Club last Wednesday evening in a magnificent contest between two evenly matched teams that gave it everything. While the final result was a 5-5 to 3-11 draw, there were winners all over the field. Each AGB player showed huge poise and ability in a game of tough tackling, pace and precision. This is the start of what promises to be a very strong finish to the U14 season.
AGBs Intermediate Team played Kilmacanogue on Saturday evening in Pearses’ Park and finished with a final score of AGB 2-14 to Kilmac 1-11. A solid team performance provided for a win in a tough match against a strong Kilmacanogue side. AGB pulled together from the start of the match right through to the end, and fought a tough battle in the second half to keep Kilmacanagoue at bay. This win has moved AGB to the top of the table in the Campus Oil Division 2 League, and is the start of what promises to be an exciting team to watch in the Championship.
Well done to Annie Conroy and Orla Hayes who represented the club on the Wicklow Minor Ladies Team and won the Leinster C Championship final against Carlow on a score line of 2-12 to 1-12. Unfortunately Orla Hayes is recovering from injury at the moment and couldn’t play. Annie had a fantastic game and now returns to captain AGB Senior Ladies.
