U12 Co. League v Beale
On a windy Sunday afternoon we welcomed Beale to Healy Park for the 2nd game of Co. League. Similar to last week’s Dingle game we started slowly and our opponents took full advantage with an excellent first half. Beale had an energetic midfield and half forward line that opened us up time and time again. With little breathing room we were only able to rattle off 4 scores in the first half, goals from Daniel McCarthy and Jamie McCarthy with points from Brayden Pierce and Jamie. But Beale’s tally of 5-11 meant the game was all but out of sight.
Again similar to last week we came out a different team in the second half. A tighter defence allowed us to rally the initial onslaught of Beale before we started to run at them ourselves and started to take our own scores. Goals from Nick and Jude Lacey were followed by points from Ruari Kennedy, Brayden Pierce, Conor and Oisin Cronin before our man of the match William Higgins raised the green flag to leave 8 between the sides at the end. In truth Beale had more in reserve but we would have liked a better first half . Great credit to all players for working hard and sticking at it to the end and really performing well in the second half.
This was our first home game observing the silent sideline and we would like to thank everyone for taking part.U12s have no game next Sunday, June 9th.Their next game is away to Gneevguilla at 6pm on June 16th.
NO GAMES FOR U14s or U16s.
