Bearna-Na Forbacha U12 hurlers were in action last Saturday in the Galway U12 Group3 league semi-final against an unbeaten Gort side. Despite Bearna-Na Forbacha being slightly better in general play in the first half, Gort were more clinical in front of goal and were in front at half time. Gort forged ahead after the break to win comprehensively, although Bearna-Na Forbacha also scored some fine goals in this period. Overall it was a great year for the lads, with a haul of five wins from 7 games. Well done to the team and coaches.
