Juvenile Academy:

We welcomed Currow to our field last Sunday for a return game and just like the last week, it was a fantastic match between the two teams.

The match was played on our astro turf and all our players gave a great account of themselves including those who had been away on holidays and had missed training. Mention must be made of Caoimhe Dairo who gave a man of the match performance and was a joy to watch. The likes of James Dowling who was very solid in defence and kept the Currow forwards at bay throughout the game, Josh Quilter and the ever improving Kostas Daskalkus did not go unnoticed.

We’d like to use this opportunity to thank Currow GAA for their great sportsmanship and also a big thanks once again to the parents who turned out in great numbers to support the team.

Under 12’s:

Finuge- 4-16 St Pats 2-10

St pats travelled to Finuge on Thursday  last and took on a very strong Finuge team but St Pats had some great passages of play.

David Fiado played very well in goals again and was helped out on many occasions by some great defending by Michael Doody ,Daniel Moriarty ,Oisin Murray, liam o sullivan and Aaron Murphy and diarmuid Griffin when they came on. Our first point came from a great score by Nathan Moriarty  after some great play by Cillian Lynch  and Colin Doody.  .Another great ball from cillian set up Danny Greaney  who was very unlucky not to score .Good play again by nathan who linked up with cillian who gave off a lovley pass to  Danny  who was fouled and calmly kicked the resulting free over the bar.

Great defending by Michael set up the next score for Tomas O’ Sullivan who received the ball from Jade Harkins  and scored a great point .

A great save from david set up and score from Tomas  who this time received  the ball from colin and this was followed up by some great fielding from danny who scored another great point .

Colin was getting alot of ball on the wing and was unlucky not to score but he did set up a great goal for Tomas. Great play by micheal healy and Oisin tobin when introduced and the second half started with a great point from Danny  after great defending from Daniel and Liam. Cillian was at this stage defending and passed to Corey O ‘ Shea  who showed off his catching skills and let the ball off to Tomas who then passed to sean Crowley who scored a great point.

Sean  and Oisin along with Cillian and colin were winning  great ball now and the backs continued to defend well with david making great  saves and diarmuid and Aaron clearing the ball serveral times.

Tomas  who along with danny ran themselves in to the ground and he scored two quick points which was followed up by a point from danny after grace O ‘Brien won and cleared the ball.

Colin gave a lovely ball in to Nathan who was unlucky not to score a goal but all were playing well now but Finuge were just that bit stronger .The game ended with a fantastic display of skill with colin kicking a point from a 45 to end the game in great style. Finuge were just too strong on the night but all of St Pats played really well and showed great heart through out .
