November 7, 2018

Blues 6-7 Mellifont Rovers 1-11

Blues secured the U14A C’ship to add to their league title and completed a fantastic season at U14 level for the newfoundwell boys.But they were made to fight all the way by a very determined mellifont side.Blues got they better start and goaled in the 2nd min through R.nally.further points by Downey and Nally extended the lead before mellifont opened their account after 10 mins.Further goals by Downey and Nally put Blues in the driving seat to lead by 3-4 to 1-2 at the break.
Mellifont came out a different team in the 2nd half and scored 5 pts without reply and reduced the margin by 3 with 15 mins gone in 2nd half.Blues defended brilliantly and when R.Guildea landed a great point to stem the tide,Blues moved up a gear and played some great flowing football.Further goals from K.Carr,J McDonnell and C.Downey killed off the Mellifont challenge,and so ended a 19 yr wait for the Peter Judge Cup amid Jubilant scenes at the final whistle.This was a brilliant team effort by a very talented bunch of players. Thanks also to all the hardwork of John Donohue, Colm Nally, Martin Carr & Dessie Murray.
