U11 footballers in great form: Our U11 team football teams were in action during the week against Arklow, St Pats and Shillelagh/Coolboy. In Arklow, the lads put on a great performance to come away with a well-merited victory.
Played in sweltering conditions, the team raced into a lead thanks to scores from John O’Boyle, Danny Howard, John Byrne and Rory Coyle. The sterling rear-guard work comprising Cillian McInerney’s blocking, Niall Barry’s determined defending and Dexter Whyte’s vision limited their opponents scoring opportunities.
This match had everything, even including the drama of an own goal! Chairman Larry Howard on the side-line had visions of Mayo vs the Dubs but thankfully the goal went our way!
A fine solo score on the run by Sal Maxwell brought us clear when halftime came.
The second half turned into a real battle with strong play from Senan Dutton, Harry McGeehan and Ben Willis as well as the assured kick outs from Shane O’Dowd won the day for the lads.
U15 Boys Take Feile Crown: Victories over An Tochar, Blessington and Annacurra meant that our U15 boys took the Group 1 title at today’s Feile competition.
