On June 30th. St.Patrick’s U12 girls continued their winning streak with a comprehensive win over Boherlahan in the county ‘C’ football final. St.Pats started well with some fine individual displays of skill, especially from Niamh Keane who opened the scoring with a well taken point and then added a great goal ten minutes later. Caoimhe Ryan in a fantastic display of determination broke from centre field, through the Boherlahan defence and buried the ball in the back of the Boherlahan net. In what was a very physical game Boherlahan having played with the strong wind went in at half time leading 2-3 to 2-1. The second half saw St.Pats come out with all guns blazing with great performances from Ruth McDonald now operating at centre field and Dorothy Wall at centre back. With an absolutely solid defence of Shannon , olivia and chloe and Sadhbh in goal who kept us in the game with two fine saves in the final minutes St.Pats ran out deserving winners on a score 3-6 to 2-4.
This is the U12’s second county final win in a row having won the “D” Championship last year and now the “C” championship this year, so roll on the “B” championship next year. After a victory lap around the villages of Cloneen and Drangan we all went back to the club house for a well deserved celebration of Pizza , and chips kindly sponsored by the ladies club . A very big thank you to all the mammys who brought food and finally a huge thank you to Jerimiah kiely of Kielys garage who sponsored the minerals for the team.

So well done to all.
