Congratulations to the men’s and ladies teams for a successful Sunday at the National Indoor Hockey Finals in Antrim. The women went all the way and won the whole tournament beating Ashton 11 – 0 in the semi finals. Later that afternoon they finished off the job and beat Ards 6 – 1 to clinch the title.
The men were also successful in the semi finals, coming back from a goal behind to beat Cookstown 3 – 1. Unfortunately they came up short against Three Rock Rovers in the final losing 6 – 1.
Both teams will be down in Railway celebrating and cheering Ireland on in the 6 Nations opener this weekend. Well deserved, well played by both teams.
