A busy week for our u13s this week, with a few back games having to be played to complete out the County league. First off last Thursday saw us travel to Firies in key fixture for both teams

Our Green team were first in action and were unfortunately down some personnel. This showed in the 1st quarter as we all owed Firies in for 5 goals while at the other end we were guilty of some poor finishing. The remainder of the game saw us chasing hard to make up the deficit but although we tried hard our finishing again left us down

Firies 5-10
John Mitchels Green 1-05

Our Gold team started slowly against a determined Firies side, who led early by 4 points to 1. The golds started to find their groove though and tagged on some nice points before 3 quickfire goals put us in a commanding position at half time. Firies weren’t for giving up though and they fought back valiantly to lead the game in the final quarter. Showing great spirit our boys never dropped their heads and got the last point of the game to secure a hard earned draw.

Firies 3-11
John Mitchels Gold 3-11

Irrespective of the result against Firies, the Greens were still in a position to win the Division 9 title, with a win over the unbeaten Keel/Listry this Sunday evening. This proved to be tense and dramatic encounter with both sides defences being very much on top.

The Greens started well, pouncing for an early goal to settle the nerves and some nice points gave us a healthy lead at the first water break. Keel/Listry were in no mood to lie down though and they struck for a well taken goal of their own and led at half time by a point.

Keel continued to dominate the scoreboard with a well taken goal early in the 2nd half. Showing great character though, the Greens struck back with a superb goal to hit the front again. The play ebbed and flowed for the remainder, with Keel/Listry closing the gap to 2 points but our lads held tough for a well earned victory and to be crowned Division 9 champions.

Great credit is due to all these lads who have done nothing but improve all year. They are a very young team with the majority still underage next year and quite a few U11s thrown in for good measure

John Mitchels Green 4-4
Keel/Listry 3-3

Training continues this Tuesday at 5.30 – full attendance required!!

Next Thursday evening the Gold team face Keel/Listry in what is also a decider for Divisional honours, this time in Division 1. Match throw in is 6.30pm – all support welcome!!!

On Wed last we played Na Gaeil in the central league on an ideal evening for football we had the bare 15 players as a few of the lads are away on holiday in a very entertaining game we played some excellent football but due to lack of players we just came up short with a final score of Mitchel’s 6-10 Na GaeIl 6-20 just want to wish the Na Gaeil player who got injured on Wed evening a speedy recovery training continues Monday and Friday 6-45pm full attendance required.
