Well Done Under 16 Boys:

One point win Friday evening for our U16 boys against Kilmoyley in the 1/4 final of the Championship Plate.

With Kilmoyley going down to 14 men in the first half, Parnells had the extra legs to rack up a 6 point margin halfway through the second period.

But this lead seemed to be if anything a handicap, as the Parnells fluency faltered and the Kilmoyley attack found gaps to run in two goals to make it a tight encounter in the closing minutes.

In the end Parnells hung on for a one point win in a tense finish.  For this group of players this was a sweet if uncomfortably close win, especially in light of going down by a similar small margin in the division 2 league decider against the same opposition earlier in the season.

Next up Parnells face Ballyduff, so no doubt another stiff challenge awaits on Friday
