It has been quite an eventful month for our Intermediate footballers as they had made the Cor Na Boinne final against Trim which was played on the last weekend in September. If you were making a prediction based on previous results of both teams, you would have expected Trim to win easily but what we witnessed was something completely different. St. Pats put in a great shift but lost out by a solitary point. This would give them the boost that they needed as they had 2 relegation games to play where they had to win both games. They played Ballinlough first and they put in a good performance where they won comfortably by 14 points to 8. Twoo weeks later they came up against Moylagh in walterstown and their performance was exceptional. They dominated from the first minute until the last and they proved that they deserve to remain an intermediate team for the coming season. Let’s hope they can kick on again next year with the talent that they have and the minors coming through.
Come on St.Pats
Ladies junior footballers
Pats ladies through to another County Final.
Well we said this one would be a classic and wow did it live up to that billing, this was not a game for the faint hearted or anyone suffering from a nervous disposition, this was two giants from the north east going at each other knowing that come 1:30 or thereabouts only one team would go forward to that county final.
Pats started off well hitting 1-2 without reply but DeleekBellewstown didn’t too take long to find their groove either and before long they would take the lead with two well taking points and a goal of their own. This more or less set the trend of how this game would go right up to the last 10 minutes with DeleekBellewstown holding onto a slender lead but just not able to get away from the Pats ladies.
This was a game that had everything from the early blow for the Pats with the loss of Katie Dowling through injury (Get well soon Katie) to the heroics of the amazing Katie Brangan in the goal mouth, that combined with the constant running the length and breadth of the pitch from Emma White Tori Foster Ellen Grant Ciara Rothwell two mention just a few. I can’t cover all the names on this report because there was just so many great performances on the day from both sides, but like I said it all came down to that last ten minutes and when Woman of the Match Becky Harney slipped her third goal past the brilliant Monica McGurk in the DeleekBellewstown goals the pats ladies could finally sense victory was within reach.
This was a game worthy of a final with two clubs bound together by rich history, friends off the pitch as captured in the picture below. They say there can only be one winner but last Sunday you couldn’t call either team a looser and in fact there was two winners yes St Pats won the game but the sport we all love and live for was the other winner with two great teams given it all for their club and jersey.
Finally one last word to the Pats girls, when your backs are to the wall ladies you always seem to find a way! Stand tall stand proud and get ready for another great day out ….Hondapats☘💪💪☘

U15 Div 1 Ladies
St Pats v Colmcilles U15 lgfa Div1 Semi-final.
Sometimes a score line does not reflect the closeness in a battle between 2 teams and this was one of those occasions. The Pats players battled hard throughout led by Captain Keira Coughlan in midfield and the always dependent Holly Guildea working tirelessly to supply the forwards. The backs put in a huge shift emptying the tank against a running Cilles team. The difference on the night was the conversion rate and keeping the scoreboard ticking over. St Pats were unable to capitalise on their scoring chances and the Cilles pulled away and won out deserving winners on the night. Its back to the training field for these hard working player’s to work on getting the team balance correct.
Final Score: 1:6 to 3:10
U15 reserve A ladies
With another semi-final place up for grabs , the St. Pats team got ready to face Trim. The opposition proved to be too strong for us on the day and showed the management and players where we need to be to compete at this level. This is development ant the Pats team showed great heart throughout winning the second half. Unfortunately the scoreline was too big to claw back and Trim ran out deserving winners on the day. St. Pats 1-7 Trim 4-8.
