U21 Championship

The u21s faced Claudy in the semi final of the championship on Wednesday evening in Owenbeg. In difficult conditions the team put a solid first half performance against the breeze to trail by a point at the break. With the breeze at their backs, the Bridge produced a more polished performance with a goal from Jude Diamond at a crucial stage of the game providing the platform for victory. Final score Newbridge 1-16 Claudy 0-13.

The team faced Glenullin in Glenullin in Sundays final and despite playing against the breeze, got off to a great start racing into a 5 point lead after 8 minutes courtesy of points from Mark (2), Conor, Paudie and CD. In the 18th minute a rampaging solo run was finished with a goal by the same player and quickly followed up with 2 quick points from Aidy and Mark to push the Bridge 9 ahead. Soon after a quick fire double by Odhrán McGlone was sandwiched by 3 Glenullin points. Odhrán got his third of the half in the 27th minute and the final score of the half came from the boot of Mark to leave 9 between the teams. Glenullin started the second half much livelier registering an early point and then a goal to reduce the Bridges lead to 5. Points from CD and Mark settled the Bridge again prior to Glenullin converting a free. The teams traded points in the 15th and 17th minute and the final 2 scores of the game came via CD and Jude as the Bridge ran out worthy championship winners on a scoreline of Newbridge 1-16 Glenullin 1-08.
