There seems to be a lot of ground for Falcons youths to make up at the half way mark in the North East league table, but all is not lost for the Longford club.
Up to recently our boy’s u/16s (9/1, 28pts) their eight game winning came to abrupt end against Dunshaughlin Rockets (6/1, 19pts) lying in fourth place. While the title race may look to be between them both, that defeat brought Streete Warriors (8/2, 26pts) in second spot are very much back in the race and are sure to prove a bigger treat then every before to both the former clubs with home advantage for their second round ties.
In the girls u/16s league the strong challenge by the Killinkere club look to be eyeing up this section who are on a seven game winning run and lead with Ligy Dynamited (7/2,23pts) more games played heading the table, trailed with Killinkere (7/0,21pts) in second place, while Falcons(6/2,20pts) behind in third spot.
Dunshaughlin Rockets (7/0,21pts.) are very much to the fore front in the Girls u/14 league undefeated in seven games and are favours to take this, with those training Dynamites(5/2,17pts) their nearest opponents in second, followed by Killinkere ( 4/5,17pts) and Falcons (4/4,16pts) in fourth spot who main aim now is to improve on that or not make the play-offs.
In a slightly better situation is Falcon (5/2,17pts) boy’s u/14, tough they share fourth place with Streete, with a game less behind Dunshaughlin Rockets (6/3,21pts) and Drogheda Bullets (6/1,19pts). It’s very much an open group with all to play yet and the next few matches will be watched closely by those concern.
