We hosted Milltown/Castlemaine this morning in Healy Park and had a fantastic morning; the U6S, U8S & U10s boys and girls were all in action and thoroughly enjoyed their games – well done to all the coaches from Milltown and our own teams for having everyone primed for the games – it was most enjoyable.
A huge Congratulations to our KoR players of the week :
U 6 Boy Fionn Smith
U 6 Girl Ava O Donoghue
U 8-10 Girl Meabh Kennedy
The Academy will resume at 11am next Sunday in Healy Park.
The U 10 Boys will partake in a Blitz next Saturday the 15th in John Mitchels – best of luck lads.
We travelled to Castleisland on Monday night last to take on the locals and despite a good showing were beaten in the end on a final score line of 5-15 to 3-12.
The B team were in action in Killeeen on Weds night vs Na Gaeil and came home victorious on a final score of 5-18 to 3-08.
We travel to Keel on Monday 10th to play the locals in the final round games.
Our u13 boys took part in the Lee Strand Tournament today hosted by Stacks in Connolly Park.
Our first game was at 11.40 this morning where we took on Churchill. The boys were well up for the game and converted some great scores and came away with a fantastic win on a scoreline of 1-08 to 1-04.
We then took on a very strong Na Piarsaigh but despite great efforts by all the boys we did not come away with a win.
Our final round game was against Ballyboden. We played some great football but could not seem to convert our chances and came away without any points.
A win for Na Piarsaigh over Churchill gave us a spot in the semi-final against Nemo Rangers.
Before this game ever started the odds weren’t with us. Ruairi Kennedy and Ryan Houlihan went into the game with injuries, Seamus Cahill had to sit out the game with an ankle injury and Daniel Aneke was taken to A&E after he sustained an injury in the previous game ankle and required stitches. We all wish him a speedy recovery.
We played Nemo with just 13 men and as most of this team is made up of u11s and even 2 u10s the long day took its toll. We got some great scores but not enough to book a place in the final.
Well done to all the boys, the parents for staying to support them and to Ed and Darren for giving up their Saturday to be with the boys.
