Our U12 boys squad 2 battled to a fantastic 1 point win in tropical conditions in WMT against St Brigids. In a low scoring first half WMT were kept in touch with a couple of lovely points from Ollie McCormack. The second half started poorly with the boys conceding 3-1 in the first few minutes but then came a fantastic comeback. Goals from Matthew Lyons, Aaron Farrell, James Dillon, Liam Foran and Ollie McCormack got the boys noses in front. With brilliant battling performances from every player and Henry “The Hoover” Todd cleaning up in the half back line - the boys got across the line by the thinnest of margins with sheer determination and team effort. Well done boys!!!
Our Squad 1 boys travelled south to Ballinteer to play in Costa Del Marley Park, and gave a fine display of courage and lots of skills. Scores were scarce for both sides and half times saw us in front by the 4 points thanks to fine teamwork throughout the team. Defence was the order of the day for the second half, for which we were not found wanting but a luck final minute goal for Ballinteer saw them win by 2 points. Massively proud of our boys today, who fought to the last minute and with no subs, no rest was possible. Can’t single our any players for special mention as every one of them gave 100%…
The Further is bright. The future in Blue.
