U12 Rd 2: Castleconnor 10 v Geevagh 8

posted 20 Apr 2011, 00:50 by Bart Barrins
Managers David Mahoney and Michael Cahill went into this game without two of their leaders when both Paul Flynn and Ódhran Quinn were unavailable. However this meant that other lads picked up their game. At the end of the first quarter the game was fairly even at 3 scores a piece, both sides having superiority.
The second quarter saw some very good defensive displays from both set of backs and an excellent display by Micheál Cahill scoring with both feet. However at ht we trailed by 1 score.
At the start of the third quarter things looked shaky but then we hit a purple patch and scores from James Tully, Kevin Naughton, Micheál Cahill and Thomas Howley put us in a good position for the last quarter. A tense last 5 mins in the final quarter when the visitors were in control despite the best efforts of James Boland and Niall Judge had everyone at the edge of their seats.
The final whistle was blown and both sets of players and officials surrounded the referee to find out the score which thankfully went our way.
Squad last night: Kenneth Flynn, Ross Gilmartin, Fergal Boland, James Boland, Niall Judge, Dáire Barrins, Micheál Cahill, Thomas Howley, Kevin Naughton, Colm Naughton, Brian Mahoney, Danny O'Hora, Oisín Flynn, James Tully
Next Tuesday the lads travel to Skreen to take on St.Pats
