The boys A team beat Claregalway in Round 1 and advanced to the quarterfinals, where they lost to Dunmore, despite playing very well.
The boys B team were disappointed to lose out against a strong Colemans C team in the first round, but enjoyed a convincing win in a challenge match against Claregalway later on.
The boys C team won their first round match against Sligo’s Summerhill, but were outplayed by Colemans’ B team in the quarters.
The greatest success was enjoyed by the girls who won their first round match against the Mercy Roscommon, followed by a resounding win in the quarters against Sacred Heart, Westport. They were eventually defeated in the semis by a skilful Dunmore A team.
We returned to BCS a happy bunch, eager for further practice and matches. Mr Shannon
