Coming up this Monday, the 24th of June at the Vanier College –
- 7pm – Griffintown Gaels (Ladies) vs Goose Village Blackrocks (Ladies)
- 8pm – Griffintown Gaels (Men’s) vs Goose Village Blackrocks (Men’s)
This week sees a Griffintown Gaels vs Goose Village Blackrocks double header as both the men’s and ladies’ teams face off against each other.
First up, the ladies’ football. The Blackrocks are without a win in their first two games, including an opening day defeat to their opponents tonight, but a margin of four points. The season is still in it’s infancy but the Blackrocks will want to return to their winning ways, and sooner rather than later. Victory here will bring them back into the pack and within two points of the current leaders, otherwise they could see themselves up to four points adrift and a mountain left to climb. The high flying Gaels were brought down to earth with a bump last week when they met the Verdun Vikings, and they’ll be looking to put that all behind them now, and right the ship. A repeat of their opening day performance would be just what they need, and would bring them into tied first place, for the time being. Both sides have everything to play for and will fight tooth and nail for every ball – expect a fantastic display to start the evening off.
And rounding out the day we have a top of the table clash in the men’s football. These side last met in the opening game of the men’s season, with the Blackrocks edging out a single point win. This time the Gaels will be looking for a reversal of that result and to put some daylight between themselves and the rest of the pack. The Blackrocks are currently undefeated and would love to keep building that streak, and with another game coming up for them this Friday, a win here would put them in high spirits for their second game. But if they leave too much on the field today, how will that affect their next game? These sides are looking to make their mark on the season, and either one is more than capable of coming out on top, so be sure to join us as we finish a fine evenings football and see which side wanted it more.
