U18s Win at home
The U18s had a well-deserved victory last Sunday against a sold outfit from Galwegians. The visitors led by 4points with only minutes to go. Sligo pulled out all the stops to score a converted try to earn their first win of the season.
Minis Blitz at Hamilton Park
Over 200 boys and girls, aged 6-12 took part in a Minis blitz last Saturday. The weather did little to dampen the spirits, as all the teams played on the three different pitches. Congratulations to all the players on a great display of rugby. Thank you to all the parents and coaches involved.
U10s Play at The Sportsground

The players also formed a guard of honour for the Connacht players as they entered the pitch. Well done to all the coaches and parents involved in organising the trip.
Mixed results for Sligo U14s
Both Sligo U14 teams were playing at home last Saturday. The boys were playing Corinthians and maintained their 100% record, when the visitors decided to concede the game.
The U14 girls came up against tough opposition in the visiting Creggs side and were unfortunate to lose 6 tries to three.

The night was a great success, with the much-coveted culinary award going to Emer Bree, representing The Warriors Committee.
