Keelogues 11 Towncentre 22

The Towncentre trio of Cecchetti, Staunton and Gilroy proved too strong for Keelogues.
Keelogues made too many errors admittedly caused by good defensive play on Towncentres behalf. Billy Pierik proved to be Keelogues best but Towncentre held all the cards.

Ballycastle 26 Charlestown 32

The U15 girls division 1 league looks hot with games to date being closely contested and no under dogs to be seen.
A blistering second quarter from Charlestown hitting 17 points with a reply of just 5 sealed the victory had Ballycastle concentrated just a little more their final period comeback would have turned the game the other way.
The damage inflicted off the break with some timely interceptions, Charlestown trademark by Linda Morrisroe and Lisa Mulligan was the difference between the teams.
Liath Barrett proved Ballycastles main influence following a three pointer from Aoife Herbert, which led their final quarter comeback trailing 26 to 13 they brought the score back to respectable figures.
