SKERRIES 1g5p, SYLS 5g18p Conviction, passion, determination and all round a electrifying display of free flowing football is the only way to describe this match. A sunny Monday evening in great weather conditions brought two attacking teams together with the syls minors coming out on top.
st sylvesters 3-15 v ballyboden st endas 0-0 I'll credit Keith with the headline, you may be sure Boden have and will give us the same from time to time. Monday night in broomfield brought ballyboden to the heart of sylvesters home ground and this time it was bodens hearts broken,it started on the whistle with syls winning the first throw in and that set the tone for the night as syls put on a majestic display of fast attacking football and hard defending,
The minor girls win again that's 4 matches in a row and three in the league, on Monday on a wet and windy night syls traveled to naomh barròg and the conditions were very bad syls against the wind in the first half started sharp but found it hard to break through the barròg defence and found themselves 2points down but eventually settled and got back level with some smart play and great point taking.half time came and syls came out of the traps firing on all cylinders amazing passing and moving left barròg on the back foot and chasing shadows!

As in our Championship encounter with Clanna Gael/Fontenoy, this was a cracking game of football, with both teams playing an open attacking running and passing style. Clanna Gael had some extra players in and new management, apparently from Trinity College, who use the Clanna Gael grounds as their home base.
Syls Girls U16s beat Scoil Ui Conail to qualify for the Div3 Championship Final where they will play Naomh Olafs. Squad numbers have been very tight for this group in recent years and we didn't have enough players to field in the league earlier this year. However, thanks to great co-operation from the U15 and U14 players and management, we have a strong group who have played very well in the Championship and deserve their chance in the final which will take place on 19th October (venue to be confirmed).
