On Tuesday 13th November the boys U-16 GAA team made the short trip to Baltinglass to take on the locals in the first group game of their competition. Baltinglass got off to a blistering start and lead by 1-2 to no score after 5 minutes and they continued their dominance for the first quarter. However Blessington come roaring back into the contest with good attacking football and got 2-6 on the scoreboard. Both sets of forwards were well on top and the half time score read Blessington 2-6, Baltinglass 4-4. The concession of goals proved to be a major problem and Baltinglass ran out winners on a final score of 7-6 to 3-10.
Next up for this group of players is a home fixture against Kilcoole.
