Perfect conditions at home in Cornelscourt on Saturday afternoon last for our final League 7 game. It was 13 a side with 2 subs on the full pitch against Scoil Ui Chonail from the Clontarf Rd in D1. Zach Kenny Ward was our Captain for the game.
Robbie Duffy from our U12s played in goal first half. Robbie made many outstanding saves. Robbie played at right corner back in the 2nd half. Our defence for the game was Shane O Sullivan, Zach & Ronan with Alex Mason (0:02) & Morgan in the half back line. All 5 were outstanding on the day putting in a big shift of tackling & blocking against a big physical Scoil side. Half Time Score Gers 3:06 Scoil 2:03.
Jamie (1:02) & Peter (2:02) paired up again at midfield where they had the upper hand winning a lot of posession & kicking some great scores. On the 40 yard line we had Cormac (0:01), Alex Hopkins (1:00) & Mark (0:01) with Hugo Redmond (3:01) from our U12s & Robert (2:01) leading our attack. All 5 gave 110% running, passing & supporting each other with some great scores.
Thomas (0:01) subbed on for Cormac in attack 1st half & played in goal 2nd half where he made a few great goal line clearances. Shane Power subbed on in defence for Ronan 1st half & Morgan in the 2nd half. They all played their part in what was a big win for our team & a great finish to this league.
