The Mighty MGSA Gael Force represented well at the 2014 CYC’s in NYC.
Jack, Ross, and Hunter played U16 football and hurling for Hartford GAA and came up short on the scoreboard, but big on the field with some great efforts against incredible competition. They were really the only hurlers on a football-heavy and very young team. We are so proud of the leadership and effort they displayed and for making themselves a part of Hartford’s quality program.
Coach James assumed the field directions and strategy for the 2 hurling matches, and we nearly took out a strong New York squad while playing a hard-fought match against an always-disciplines Chicago team.
Maggie played for the U16 North American ladies football team and got serious playing time, finishing 4th in their division.
Frank and Greta played U12 football for Springfield and got their 1st taste of victory at CYC’s but the very young squad, despite some close games against established clubs just missed the Sunday playoffs.
Frank also played U12 hurling for the new Ottowa squad, and they also made a great showing in really their 1st competition.
Ross’s North American U16 Hurling squad nearly took down the mighty New York team in their only match, losing by 2 points. Ross played a magnificent game for a team that had only practiced together for 2 days.
