THE ACL continued for the seniors and reserve teams on Sunday with the teams travelling to Galbally.
First up were the reserves, and aided by a slight breeze the lads played some great football but wastefulness in front of goal saw us only take a 4 point lead in at the break. Galbally started the 2nd half strongest and got in front, but our boys rallied and led by veteran Brendy Kelly, the lads won by 3 points. Final score Harps 0-18, Galbally 1-12.
In the senior game, an evenly balanced first half saw the home team go in with a slender 2 point lead on a 1-8 to 1-6 score line, Dan Lowe with the Harps goal. The second half continued in the same vein as the 1st and another Dan Lowe goal seemed to have put us on the road to victory only for a point from Mickey Murphy with the last kick of the game to tie the game up. Final score Harps 2-13, Galbally 2-13. The teams have a short turnaround this week as they travel for two very tough games in Pomeroy on Friday evening. Throw in for the games are 6.45 reserves and 8.15 for the seniors.
The U16 league resumes this Saturday with round 9 away to parish neighbours Coalisland. Throw in is at 4pm.
The under 14s again had two games this week and the lads put up great battles in both but unfortunately came out on the wrong end of narrow defeats. On Wednesday night they entertained Cookstown and were unlucky to lose out in what was a very close game. Final score Harps 1-10, Cookstown 2-10. Then on Sunday evening, the lads played out a thriller with Gael Naomh Padraig going down by 2 goals on a 4-14 to 6-14 score line. The boys faced Clonoe in round 6 of the league last night (Wednesday). The next game is this coming Wednesday (6th June) when the lads play Donaghmore at home. Throw in is at 7.30.
Training for the U12 team will commence this Sunday at 12.00 at the field. All new comers are more than welcome.

Our Junior ladies side were beaten by a strong Edendork side in Championship on Friday night in Ardboe, however all the girls can be proud of all the effort that they put in. The U14s played Urney on Saturday in the Championship at Urney and they won by 6 points in what was a great team performance from the girls.
The U12s played Moy on Monday night past and they are then at home on Thurday to Dungannon.
We will be hosting the U10 Blitz on Saturday starting at 11am.
