The team travelled to Markievicz on Saturday morning to play in the U12 finals. This year the team moved up from D to B and reached the Cup semi finals.

It rained continuously throughout the game where 18 lads togged out for us. All 18 lads got at least 1 quarter of the 4 quarter game. The first quarter was our downfall when we trailed 6 v 1 at the first break with our score coming from Oisín Flynn.

The second quarter we got more into the game and improved tackling from our midfield and defence meant we turned over at halftime 8-3 down. As the third quarter wore we started to take a grip on the game but our shooting was a bit off and for the final quarter we were 10-4 down.

The final quarter we took over in midfield and scores from Ronan Wilson, James Tully and Oisín Flynn had pulled back the lead to 10 - 7 . At this point we missed a number of chances but our opponents St. Marys were glad to hear the final whistle.

The team have put in a great effort this year and did very well in moving up to B from D last year. Thanks to them and their families for the effort put in.
