Congratulations Seattle Gaels MGFC!

The Seattle Gaels Men’s Gaelic Football team traveled to San Diego California this past weekend to compete in the annual West Coast Sevens – San Diego Tournament, May 25-26, 2019 where they swept the competition to capture and bring home the championship trophy!

Saturday’s round robin had our boys matched up against The LA Cougars GFC, Setanta San Diego, And Orange County Wild Geese GF. After 3 hard fought games the Gaels came out on top undefeated!

The lads went into to finals on Sunday morning, going head-to-head in a rematch against the LA Cougars once again. It was a real battle which saw the Gaels down by 5 with no substitutes at the half-time. The panel showed real grit as they rallied in the second half against a tough LA team and a slew of injuries. And at the final whistle the score was 3-07 to 2-05. The Gaels pulled off the comeback win and were headed to the champions platform to receive their silverware!
