U16 championship  V Malachys/Ballinagore in The Downs
A share of the spoils after a pulsating game of football played in difficult conditions was a fair result. Both teams had chances to win a game of fine football. After being dominant in the first half we led by 1.05 to 0.02 but conceded 2 second half goals and had to come from behind to get a draw. Our backs were on top in the first half and we should have had a bigger lead but wasted too many chances. Some of the lads tired a bit after the break mainly due to the long break we have had but we finished strong and could have possibly won had we taken advantage of some chances we had. All said we showed great determination throughout. It was great to see the commitment we showed going for the ball and if we keep this effort up we will be difficult to beat going forward. Team G Sheridan, P Duncan, P J Maguire, A Boyhan, S Raleigh, D Daly, D Moran, S Cullen, F Thompson, N Coates, J Cahill, C Quinn, L Loughlin, S Murray, K Newmann. Subs J Feeney, F Doherty, S Conroy, R Briody, M Kelly, N Gavin.
