Dramatic match in Meadowvale tonight. The U14’s beat Clanna Gael to go top of the table. This match had very thing and went explosive in the 2nd half.
The first half was a very tight match. It was end to end football with some great defense on both sides. We hit the cross bar, hit the up right on a number of occasions and just could not get the scores. We got a penalty and missed that. It was a low scoring 1st half and we finished a goal behind on a score line of 0.2 to their 1.2.
A team of MEN came out in the 2nd half. They stood up tall, very tall. We went behind by a another two points. But then took a goal and we were back in the match. For the next 20 mins there were some great team play and great scores. There was never more than a point in it, with either us up by a point, equal or down by a point. With 5 mins to to go we were level at 2.5 to their 1.8.
We then put up 3 points in quick succession with out reply. 3 Mins to go. They came down and got a free just outside the square. They went for a goal to equalize but got a point. Now only 2 points up. It was back to the walls. They came at us very hard, wave after wave.
Time was up, we were 2 points up, we were in injury time, it was the final play of the game and they were in our square shooting at goal to get the winner and in dramatic fashion the ref blew the whistle and called full time.
We had beaten the Feile winners and have gone top of the league table.
Well done lads. Fantastic team performance. !!
