U12 Girls defeat Ballinasloe in Championship Semi finals

The seniors are playing Killererin in the Senior league this Saturday (15th). The match has a 4.45 throw in time at Barnaderg.

Barna U12 girls played their replay in tough weather conditions on Sunday against Ballinasloe in what was a very close encounter. Barna playing with the breeze in the first half started well, and some must of been watching the Welsh rugby team early on Saturday morning by not letting Ballinasloe play by closing them down early. This pressure paid off with a well taken point and one more was soon to follow . The conditions were never going to allow a high scoring game and Ballinasloe to their credit broke into the Barna half and scored a fine point. The girls dug deep before half time to score two more points to set up a 3 point lead going into the second half.
As this was the semi final the Barna girls of which nineteen took part in the game played their best football, with some great blocking, tackles and clearances and restricted Ballinasloe to one score in the second half although this score was to be a goal to level the scores. The Barna girls went back up the field to score the winning point. The last five minutes seemed like five hours to the girls but they stood strong and the final whistle brought joy to the Barna Girls and tears to the girls from Ballinasloe who played a great game .
The final will be against Clonbur with date and venue to be agreed
