Queen’s vs Elks: Junior Highlights

Queen’s and the Elks met on Saturday when both the U14 and U16 teams competed in the Orchard, Stranmillis  College. The U14 game was a nail-biter and went right down to the wire. Louisa Donnelly’s side (Queen’s U14) fell short in the end and Anna Maguire lead the Elks to a 2-point victory. The U16 game was a different story; Queen’s were propelled by a strong performance from forward Claire McGregor (Queen’s U16A) and came away with the win.

U14:   Ulster Elks 31  Queen’s 29

U16:   Ulster Elks 24  Queen’s 42
