13/4/13 St Marys 4-3 Geraldine P Morans 6-13

The U13’s started their League campaign in great style with a convincing away win against St. Marys in Saggart. The Gers got off to a flying start with Jamie BH and Kevin dominant at midfield. Quality ball came in to the forward line and Sean was on fire, scoring 3-2 in the first half. Mark pitched in with another goal to leave the Gers 4-4 to 2-1 up at half time. St. Marys threw everthing they had at the the Gers defense. The Gers defenders attacked every ball and Jamie and Liam T led their lines well to keep out the Marys attacks. Cormac and Conor A shared the goalkeeping duties and both pulled off some fine saves.

The Gers forwards soon found their range and the points flew over with some great scores from Chris, Mark, Kevin, Jamie BH and Liam T. St Marys were unable to respond and tight marking by Stephen, Thomas, Aidan and Conor R shut down their forward line.

This was a fantastic start to our League campaign and every boy played their part. We are now moving to training twice a week and the extra time working on fitness and ball skills will give us every chance of being very competitive in our league.

As always, many thanks to the parents on the line for their support and encouragement.
