P5 Rossa Ogs Reach Semi-Final of Newbridge Tournament

September 28th, 2010 | Football

On Saturday 11th September our P5 Rossa Ogs attended Newbridge’s annual tournament. They played against Ballinderry, Lavey and Kilrea in the group stage, beating Ballinderry and Kilrea and losing narrowly to Lavey by 2 points.

This meant that Magherafelt qualified for the Cup competition and were drawn against Lavey in the semi-final. Lavey got off to a good start with an early goal, however, as the game went on Magherafelt replied with some fine scores and an end to end contest finished with Magherafelt pushing hard for the draw / win. In the end, a very good Lavey side won by 2 points but it could have gone either way.

No-one could fault the effort, commitment and skill shown by our P5 Rossa Ogs who played all their games with tremendous attitude and spirit – Well Done !!! There were many outstanding individual displays as well as very good team performances and this tournament was a very good learning experience for these players who will soon be moving on to U10.

We would like to thank Newbridge for their kind invitation, the fantastic hospitality and the excellent t

ournament which was thoroughly enjoyed by our players, parents and coaches. A big thank you to our parents for their support and transport both of which are very much appreciated.
