25 March U13 Division 1 v BBSE, Final Score Ballyboden St Endas A, 5-14, Lucan Sarsfields, 3-4

25 March U15 Division 5 v St Vincents, Final Score Lucan Sarsfields, 0-09, St. Vincents 4-07

Lucan displayed some great football out of defence and through midfield, but were unable to convert into scores. Plenty of positives though, and the team will work on weaknesses and reinforcing strengths in advance of the next match.

25 March U15 Division 1 v Na Fianna A, Final Score Lucan Sarsfields 5-09, Na Fianna 6-06

26 March U13 Division 6S v St Marys, Final Score St Marys, Saggarts, 5-04, Lucan Sarsfields C 0-07

26 March U13 Division 3 v Fox/Cab, Final Score Lucan Sarsfields B, 11-18, Foxrock Cabinteely B 4-06
A comprehensive win for Lucan against a Fox/Cab side that played some nice football but were no match for the home sides firepower. Well done to Ellen Lynch on her goalkeeping debut.

26 March U14 Division 6S v St James Gaels, Final Score Lucan Sarsfields B, 8-06, St James Gaels 1-01

Lucan maintained focus in their preparation for Feile next weekend with good blend of attacking football and solid defending against a lacklustre Gaels side

26 March U14 Division 1 v Na Fianna, Final Score Lucan Sarsfields 3-05, Na Fianna A, 4-02
Bouncing the ball on the juvenile pitch was not the best tactic to take, but our girls worked really hard in what was a very tight game. Goals by Aoife Seery (2) and Ellie Wisdom kept Lucan in front for nearly all of the game. Na Fianna were strong and committed to every ball and took some good scores, including a goal in the dying seconds of the game to level and deny Lucan the win. The focus now shifts to next weekends Div 1 Feile hosted by Clontarf

27 March U18 Div 2, Clanna Gael/Fontenoy conceded the game to Lucan Sarsfields

29 March Adult Div 8 Cup v Na Gaeil Oga, Final Score Lucan Sarsfields B, 5-08, Na Gaeil Oga 1-02.
