A fine evening in Tallaght, with a few players missing, we had a tough challenge ahead of us from the outset. On a big pitch, the boys had to work hard from the very start, with lots of running required! A great work out and will help us get the boys to up the pace.
A great match that was very close right up to the end – some fantastic scores, high catches and individual battles to win the balls! We were very impressed with the progress demonstrated by a few of the boys tonight – and training will bring them on even more – particularly on Wednesday nights with Darren.
This really showed the level of commitment needed from every single player from start to finish – there was no easy ball one and plenty of strong tackling – which challenged the boys at times to keep possession. We made some fantastic moves, but we need to work more on our decision making – h elp make more out of the opportunities we get.
Looking forward to next week and our first league game next weekend against Lucan Sarsfields away. This will be a key game in terms of winning the league – so lots of sleep and training next week!
Thanks to the tremendous support from parents tonight – great to see, and a special thanks to our resident photographer Leonard!
