Today is the last game for the junior and they are also fighting for a championship against Co. Londonberry. We have played three county teams in a row so we know how they play. Today the premiers are watching the juniors play for the first time, so the junior team are definitely trying to impress them.
Londonberry starts the game by hitting a 25 yard banger that goes over Nate and luckily hits the crossbar. Shawn gets ball at top of the 18 and shimmies and shakes and shoots which ultimately leads to the keeper deflecting it into the goal. We are creating lots of chances and controlling possession. 1-0 halftime Strikers. Shawn scores a second with another far post shot that started with quick one two passes. Ray makes it 3 with a ball that bounces to the 18 and hits it the bottom corner. After a very chippy game with a red card and a fight in the middle, it ends as a 3-0 win for Strikers as they will take home the Salver Cup. Although we did not do well in our first three games, we bounced back and did the best we could in our situation.

To start off the day, we have a late start and go to the city of Coleraine, where we are going to explore and shop. For most of us, we like exploring, but we are bored after a few hours in the city. Today is a very mellow last day and most of us are yearning to get back home. We watch Mac and Dean do magic tricks in the square to pass the time. Then, we take a bus ride to the Giant's Causeway. It is very relaxing and beautiful at the Giant's Causeway. It is easily one of the most beautiful sights any of us have ever seen. Today was a great day because we experienced the beauty of Northern Ireland to end off this amazing trip.
