Last week our U16 girls travelled to Kilbeggan and Killucan to play championship games. On both occasions we matched our opponents until the break but failed to capitalise on the opportunities that fell our way, meaning we were beaten on both occasions. Results The Downs 3-6 Kilbeggan 4-11; The Downs 1-8 Killucan 6-7. We await results from the remaining Division 1 Championship games to see if we qualify for the semi-finals. We wish a speedy recovery to Andrea Daly who was injured in the game versus Killucan
