Both teams worked hard all over the field, Western Gaels lead going into the closing stages but some well taken score from Kilbride saw the lead change, but Western Gaels fought back and were appoint ahead going into injury time. Kilbride got the final score with the last kick of the game, this tied the game at 2-8 apiece.
The U-16 ladies played two games last week, on Friday morning the girls took on Eire Og in Frenchpark in round two of the championship. In poor weather condition both sides had to work hard for their score, some well taken goals from Eire Og ensured that they secured the win. On Sunday evening the team played Strokestown in Strokestown. This was a hard fought game and the girls lead for much of the match but Stroketown finished the stronger and got two vital goals in the closing minutes to secure the win. The girls welcome St. Faithleachs to Frenchpark next Sunday evening for round 4.
