U16 B COUNTY FINAL SAT !5th OCT ----FRAHER FIELD
On Sat last our U16s took on An Gaaeltacht in the Div 2 County Final in Fraher Field. After a very close game in the qualifier round we knew this was going to be a major challenge. From the start our lads pushed forward and got some great scores to go in at half time with a lead on a scoreline of 1 08 to 0 05.
At the start of the second half, playing against a strong wind our lads again upped the tempo and hit An Gaeltacht with two early goals to put us in a nice position. Great credit to An Gaeltacht who came back at us with everything they had and responded with a couple of goals to make us fight to the very end. Our lads though are made of stern stuff and were not going to leave this one behind and ran out deserving winners in the end on a scoreline reading 3 12 to 2 07. Afterwards with great scenes of joy our Captain Iarlaith Daly was presented with the winner's cup on behalf of his team mates. On returning home a lovely meal was provided to the panel & mentors in EAMONN'S PLACE. Many thanks to Eamonn Walsh & his staff for the lovely hospitality shown to all.
Great credit must go to this our U16 panel who epitomise everything that is good about team sports, in the team spirit,heart and dedication that they show for each other and they got their just rewards for this last Saturday. Many thanks to all the parents / guardians for their commitment throughout the year. Hugh thanks to Paudi Prendergast, Joe O Keeffe and Robbie O Sullivan for their work with this bunch and also to John Prendergast for his involvement in the early part of the season, and to anyone who helped out in any way during the year.
