Under 14 boys

Our under 14 boys continued our good recent run with a hard fought win in our third County League game of the season at home to Fossa on Wednesday evening. We appeared to be suffering from a post Feile hangover as we started very slowly and found ourselves trailing 1-10 to 6 points after 20 minutes.

However we recovered in the last 10 minutes to go in at the break leading by a point. The second half was much more like it as we dominated in midfield giving us the platform to reap the benefits up front. In the end we ran out comfortable winners 6-16 to 1-13 with all the panel  getting a run out on the night. Our panel on the night was: Donie Dillane, Shane McCarthy, Ross Sugrue, Conor Morrison-O’Brien, Kevin Williams, Ryan Ward, Mikey Kelliher, Dara Sheridan, Tyreese Flaherty, Dylan O’Brien, Craig O’Brien, Cian Barden, Padraig White, Conor Fitzmaurice, James Sheehan, Dylan O’Shea, Sean Gannon, Stephen Bowler, Graham Hudson, James O’Connor, Tadgh Broderick, Cian Canavan and Darrion Hurley.
