Our U14 team played in the B championship final inTubbercurry last Wednesday evening against Tourlestrane. This was only the fourth game for the lads this year and it showed particularly in
the first half where lads were not as sharp picking up the sliotar and getting away their shots quickly. Despite very good effort we turned around at half time losing by 2-7. However Cian Barrins, Brendan Foody, Paul Flynn and Lewis Beardshall did shine.
In the second half lads touch and eye came in more and they started to show their skills, with the Tuffys, James Boland beginning to show their skills. Kenneth Flynn, Odhran Quinn and Elliot Beardshall were starved of possession in the full forward line. Seán Carrabine showed why he was the main scorer last year with a number of scroching solo runs in the half, unlucky not to score a goal or two and having to settle for a point on another occassion. A better performance in the second half with also an outstanding full length diving save from captain for the evening Stephen Durkan, however it was not good enough against a very good Tourlestrane and we were defeated 4-10 v 0-1.
Team: Stephen Durkan, James Boland, Cian Barrins, Brendan Foody, Jason Tuffy, Paul Flynn, Lewis Beardshall, Odhran Quinn, Sean Carrabine, Stephen Tuffy, Kenneth Flynn, Elliot Beardshall. 
Thanks to the children and parents for their efforts all year and to management for their input all year.
