The u12 Div 3 side had a very fine 2-1 victory away to Corofin Utd with Cian Cusack and Kian Kirrane netting. There were also good performances from Mark Kelly in goals and Jack Mc Gann.
The u14 Div 2 side continued their good run on Saturday away to Cregmore/Claregalway and they came away with a hard earned 2-1 win with Krystan Kowjack netting twice,one from a free and the other from a spot kick.
