The U14’s travelled to St Margaret’s this evening and had a brilliant win. They showed fantastic spirit and teamwork to win by 4.6 to our 3.17. The game opened with a goal by St Margarets. But within five mins our lads had scored a goal by Liam McC and points from Kevin *2, Donal, Jamie B and Chris G. Game on !!!
Our defence had to work very hard to keep a fast running St Margarets attack at bay. Alex, Conor R, Liam, Thomas & Daniel and Jamie were excellent, very solid. As the first half continued our lads took many great scores. We played the ball out of defence to mid field where Kevin and Jamie were excellent tonight. Our lads took some great team scores with the 1st half finishing 2.3 to our 1.11.
10 minutes into the 2nd half and the sides were level. We were under some pressure. St Margarets were the the better side. Cormac made some great saves, and our lads had to work hard to stay in the game before going a point behind, 4.4 to our 1.12. The line made some changes and with 15 mins left this Gers team showed their true spirit, teamwork and determination.
The St Margaret goalie was excellent and he saved a very well taken penalty from us. Byron scored his 2nd goal, Conor K took some great points with points also from Donal, Kevin, Chris.
Overall an excellent performance by the team in this away match, with the final score 4.6 to our 3.17. It was only what the lads deserved and as we finish this part of the season, top of the table, we look forward to resuming in late August.
