Our U14 A team won the Mid Football Final with a hard fought
victory against Moycarkey in a very entertaining match in Boherlahan on
Saturday. Moycarkey started well and we were under lots of pressure early on but
our defence coped well and gradually we got into the game and led by 0 3 to 0 1
after 15 mins. Moycarkey levelled but a Joe Dwan goal gave us some breathing
space. However Moycarkey finished the half strongly and led by 1 04 to 1 03 at
the break.The second half was a rip roaring affair as both sides fought manfully
for supremacy. The scores were tied at 1 05 each ten minutes into the second
half .But we finished strongly with our goalkeeper and defence outstanding as
Moycarkey searched for a late goal. At the other end scores from Jack Lanigan
and Jack Kelly saw us home by a score of 1 09 to 1 06.This was a great overall
display from the team who really had to dig deep to come out on top. Team Dara
