U11’s Show Commitment and Passion at Cornelscourt
Saturdays game in Cornelscourt against a big physical Scoil Ui Chonaill side ended in confusion over the final score. Most people at the game would agree that it finished in a draw 1 :05 apiece.
In the first half Scoil Ui Chonaill played with hill advantage but failed to score due to a great team performance by the home side. Jamie Maguire was outstanding in goal his defence was rock solid Alex, Zach, Donal Thomas & Shane Power all gave an outstanding display of tackling blocking & passing the ball out of defense.
A new midfield trio of Cian, Peter & Shane O’Sullivan played very well & shaded this battle of the midfield Generals while upfront Daniel scored a great goal.
In the second half the wind got up & now the home team had to play into this strong wind. This would have finished most teams but not The Gers Boys U11 Team!!!! Jamie moved to midfield & with the help of Morgan & Thomas they took the game to the opposition. Mark, Robert & Christopher on his first game back played their part up front.
With wind advantage Scoil Ui Chonaill finished the game on the up & peppered the home goal with shots but our defence held firm in what was an enjoyable if low scoring game.
