Our Minor Girls were the pride of the parish last weekend when they captured the Minor B Championship title in Tubbercurry on a scoreline of 2-13 to 1-10. Our girls were dominant through out the first half and scores from 
 Tara Walsh (0-3), Molly Kennedy (0-3), Leah Gannon (0-2) and a excellent goal from center forward Leonie Gaughan, ensured that the girls in green and gold went into the half time break in the lead, Tourlestrane 1-8 Eoghan Rua 0-4. 
The second half started again at blistering pace, second half subsitiute, Laura Surlis, blasting the ball to the Eoghan Rua net within minutes of play resuming. Eoghan Rua did not lie down and fought back hard throughtout the second half with a dominant purple patch of 15 minutes but the determination of our girls was clear to see. Further scores in the second half from Tara Walsh (0-4) and Leonie Gaughan (0-1) ensured that a Minor Championship title was returning to Tourlestrane. Well done to all players, management team of Colm Corcoran, Dermot Mooney, Maureen Walsh, Leo Gaughan and Katie Walsh, and parents involved on this fantastic achievement.
