U14 Football

On Wednesday last the eight round of the  u14 football championship took place when St Patrick visited Boher. The Fixture was a crucial game for both sides as the positions on the league table were very tight  with ourselves and St Pats neck and neck for top four places and when the dust settled on this fixture it was the city side who came out on top on a score of St Pats 1-7 Murroe Boher 1-4. The first half was a very tight affair with both sides not giving an inch. Cathal Barry was impressing in goal and Eoghan Burke was having  a fine game in the middle ably assisted by Johnny Kelly. Our defence were very tight and they needed to be as St Pats had some fine players on show. Calum Ryan slotted over our only score of the half to leave it level at half time point a piece. The second half started well when we scored first from Calum Ryan but then the city side hit a purple patch when they struck for a goal and a few points.It was  looking bleak for our lads but as like all the year they battled hard none more so than Jack Nicholas who took the fight to the opponents  and with a goal from James Collopy and points from  Michael Ryan and Michael Hourigan the lads looked like they might sneak the win but the luck deserted the boys as they hit the crossbar twice in the second half when certain goals looked on. The result was very disappointing as the lads have loads of potential and with a bit of luck could have been in the top two in the table but at this time of the year in the holiday season it is hard to get the strongest team togged out on the same day. Many thanks must go to those parents who brought players back from Holiday especially for the game. Team : Cathal Barry, Shane Bartley, Michael Dunlea, Brian Quigley, Michael Ryan, Jack Nicholas, Sean O Brien, Johnny Kelly, Eoghan Burke, Calum Ryan, Sean Quigley, Devon Ryan, Jay Ryan, Michael Hourigan, James Collopy, Colin Hackett, Jack Oliver.
