On Tuesday 3rd February the Mourne Schools' Indoor Football Tournament was held in Kilkeel Leisure Centre, with nine local schools being represented. I am delighted to report that the Brackenagh West team performed brilliantly, and ended up as champions, following a very close final.
The boys won all of their four group matches to proceed to the semi-finals as group winners, where they played Annalong PS. This was a keenly fought match, with no quarter given on either side! However, Brackenagh played with great determination, and a goal from Adam McKibbin was enough to see them through to the final.
In the final the boys played against St Mary's PS, Glassdrumman, and they played extremely well. Despite going close on several occasions there were no goals at full-time and the match went to extra-time. Finally the boys' pressure paid off and goals from Adam McKibbin and James Annett saw them win the tournament.
Our congratulations to each member of the team: Nathan Morris, Jonathan Patterson, Andrew Young, James Annett, Adam McKibbin, Bailey Skillen and Jackson Graham. Well done!
