In preparation for the Final the Under 12s played Padraig Pearses in challenge match yesterday (Sunday). It was a great game with both Teams giving their all and in the end Elphin-Ballinameen won on a scoreline of 2-11 to 1-5. The team was captained by Dylan Butler who was outstanding, scoring 4 points from play, whilst his general all round play was “Top Drawer”. All played well, especially Evan Murray again, who just seems to do so in every match. Other players to catch the eye included John Anthony Quinn, who scored a fantastic 2- 1 from play, Daniel Christie, Adam Twocock, Sam & Jude O’Rourke, John Finnerty, Darragh Gilligan, Shane Gormley, Paddy McTeigue, Alex Kielty, Cameron Oates and in his 1st full game, Christopher Lavin. Well done to all involved
