Our U12 A team were defeated in the Mid final replay when they went under to Moycarkey in The Ragg on Monday 12 August. The drawn match had been a thriller and the replay kept the large crowd enthralled to the final whistle. Though playing with the wind it was Moycarkey who started stronger, but we gradually got into it and points from Eoin Purcell, Cian Stakelum, Jack Lanigan and Joe Dwan saw us lead by two at the break. Aided by the wind Moycarkey exerted strong pressure but our defence of Kieran Costello, Conor Stapelton, Paddy Creedon, Patrick Stakelum and goalie Jack O Dwyer turned in strong performances. At the other end despite having chances we just could not get the breaks we needed and Moycarkey ran out winners by 1 07 to 0 06. As well as those already mentioned there were also great efforts from Dara Stakelum, Sean Collins, Jordan Fahy and James Armstrong.
It was a great week for our under fourteens winning both their Mid titles. On Wednesday in The Ragg the second team played Clonakenny in a high scoring game .In a superb team performance Rory Fogarty top scored and with Captain Michael Stakelum driving on his team we would go on to win on a scoreline of 9-07 to 7-04.
The first team played Moycarkey on Thursday in Templemore in the A final. in terrible conditions. Our team took an early lead but went in at half time down by one point. Early goals in the second half by Jack Croke and Darren Fahey put us ahead and the scoring was rounded off with a long range point by Aidan Butler. Captain Michael Purcell accepted the cup on behalf of the team.
