Summer Superleague 2021: Week Seven Results

Week seven of the Superleague saw two very tight games with well earned victories in both. In Ladies’ Football the Warriors and the Blackrocks met for the penultimate time in the regular season, for another back and forth game, with the winner only becoming clear towards the end as the Blackrocks pulled away and put the game beyond the reach of the Warriors.
With these sides meeting one more time before the finals, there’s still plenty to play for.
In men’s football, the Goose Village Blackrocks and the Griffintown Gaels both came into this knowing only a win would do, and the Gaels were quick to take the lead, with a strong defence shutting out the Blackrocks for long periods and forcing them to shoot from distance, while using their pace to exploit holes left when the Rocks pushed forward. The second half started with the rocks down by eight points, a margin they managed to claw back until it was only three points, but the Gaels held firm and turned the screws, eventually pulling away to win the match comfortably. They’ll be joining the Verdun Vikings in the finals at the end of September.
