1st Year Boys Gaelic Football Midlands Blitz

gaaThis was the U14 boys first football match. The ball was thrown in and straight away Conor Lonergan and Ciaran Byrne were working with the forwards to try and get the first score. After settling down with St Pauls getting a few points, Coláiste Íosagáin got a few scoring chances and took them, followed by a goal just before half-time. A few good blockdowns and saves by Eoghan Connolly, Denis Collins, Darragh Talbot, John Joe Fenlon Connell and Darragh Perry meant the score at half time was 1-3 to 0-4 in St Paul’s favour.

The 2nd half started with good work from Adrian Tynan, Dylan Keane, Andrew Murphy, followed by Jay Naughton Keogh scoring our first goal. After slotting over a few more points, Conor Lonergan scored our 2nd goal. The great work done by Sean McDonald, Pauric Foley, Sean Culleton and the rest of the back line limited Coláiste Íosagáin to just 3 points in the 2nd half.

 

gaa2After a quick break, we had our 2nd match. It was a slow start for us compared to our first match and Ardscoil scored 5 unanswered points. However out of nowhere, Sean Culleton scored a cracker of a goal and now we had found our rhythm. Sean Fitzgerald followed with a well taken point.

We were stronger in the 2nd half. After a few points were exchanged, Jay Naughton Keogh scored 2 goals in the space of 5 minutes. For the remainder of the match we were not in it, but our back line and Dylan Keane and Ciaran Byrne kept going up and down the wings keeping Ardscoil’s scoring down to 1-4. After a tense last few minutes, the match ended in a draw.
