Weekly Notes 30th September

U10 Girls: Our U10 girls were on their travels last weekend and faced strong opposition against Ballingarry. Our girls gave another good display and showed great pride in the Breska colours once again.

U12A Boys: 

Breska Rovers A 1-3 GB Rovers

Breska’s u12A team welcomed champions elect to a damp and dreary Clarina last Saturday.

GB started the brighter and created numerous opportunities.  However, they couldn’t get a way past our super keeper Matt who was having a great game between the posts again. It was scoreless at the break.

Second half started along the same lines but Gb scored after 2 minutes after a rebound from a free kick. Another goal followed five minutes later after a great left foot finish by there midfielder. The lead was extended with 16 minutes to go after a well worked crossing routine.

Gerry Moroney replied from the spot after James Smith was taken down, which saw the game finish 3-1. A battling performance from our side in difficult conditions.

Congratulations to GB on being crowned champions.
