Our Under 12's gave a gallant performance in the County End Games football final against Knockavilla Kickhams in Holycross on Monday evening. We played against the wind in the first half and despite some excellent defending by our tenacious backs we trailed by 2-3 to 0-1. Our goalie Jack O'Dwyer brought off a number of top class saves in the opening half while our forwards found it difficult to find their range and we kicked a number of wides.
The second half was a different story and we took the game to the West champions who were forced to defend in numbers. A great Joe Dwan goal midway through the half gave us inspiration and we attacked at every opportunity. However Knockavilla held on for victory on a final score of Durlas Og 1-3 Knockavilla Kickhams 2-6.
Well done to all our players and mentors for their great performances throughout the year and for reaching county final day.
Durlas Og Panel: Jack O'Dwyer, Conor Stapleton, Jack Lanigan, Sean Collins, Kieran Costelloe (Capt), Paddy Creedon, Cian Stakelum, Joe Dwan, Jordan Fahy, Eoin Purcell, Patrick Stakelum, Peter Wall, James Arnstrong.
