MINOR KILBRIDE U-10: On Sunday our U-10 team played Oran, in the B-Final of the Oran U-10 Touranment. In the first half Kilbride had the upper hand; but only just, as every ball was hotly contested. At half-time the Green and White held a 2 goal advantage. However, in the second half this lead was decimated within the opening minutes. So evenly match were the teams that extra time was called for. At this stage, the strength of character of the Kilbride boys and girls displayed itself. Oran went a point up, but our crew dug deep and levelled once again. With less then a minute to go a glorious point sailed over the bar to give us a well-deserved win. Commiserations to the Oran side. Final score Kilbride 3-10 Oran 2-12. Our thanks once again to the Oran Club for inviting us to take part in their annual tournament. Well done to all concerned.
