U11s- Our U11s had a good win V Harps in the Development League on Saturday last with a final score of Drumhowan 0-30, Harps 0-12. The team played their first match on our top pitch on over a year and what a performance. Brilliant scores, link play, defending and skill were all on display. A wind assisted Drumhowan as we ran into a considerable early lead. The Harps boys turned it on in the third period and it took a strong defensive play to hold them out. A great performance by everyone.
