Morelli’s To Go Football Tournament

On Saturday we welcomed teams from Limavady Wolfhounds and Ballerin Sarsfields for the Annual Morelli’s To Go Tournament. It was a great success with some brilliant skills on show from all teams.

Thanks to the organisers, coaches, parents who provided food and refreshments and especially our sponsors, Morelli’s To Go. Finally thanks to the players from all three clubs.

At the “Morelli’s to Go” invitational tournament on Saturday Eoghan Rua managed to secure all three titles against neighbours and local rivals Ballerin and Limavady.

The format was round robin, each team played each other once and the top team received a bye to the final, with the second and third each playing off to reach the final.

At Under Eight the final was one of Drama, 100% commitment and high intensity. Ballerin and Eoghan Rua could not be separated in a titanic battle, until Eoin Lagan beat three players to drive the ball to the roof of the net.

In the Under Nine final again it was Coleraine and Ballerin and this time it was Conall McGinn who was the difference between the two sides with a tremendous second half performance that secured the title for the Bannsiders.

The Under Ten final featured Eoghan Rua and Limavady. One point separated these two sides in the League section. This was another tight game, and Coleraine pulled away in the last two minutes as the extra game began to take its toll on the Wofhounds.

Eoghan Rua would like to thank the visiting clubs for making the day such a success and in particular our sponsors Morelli’s to Go for making the event possible.

This Saturday it is the turn of the Under Twelve squad as they host visitors from Steelstown Derry, St Theresa’s Belfast, Limavady Wolfhounds and Buncrana Gaa
