On a day where the weather could only be described as weird there was nothing weird about the football played by our Under 12 teams today in Skryne, only wonderful!
Two separate Cilles teams took on Skryne away today in two captivating matches.
Each and every one of this team pulled together on what was a game hard fought and played. Skyrne only levelled once and our boys took every point available with the game ending Colmcilles 11 points to Skyrne’s 8 points. A well balanced team, each of our boys played to their strengths and were deserving winners of the game.
Team: Jack Collier , Karl Leonard, Oisin Renstrom , Derry Finlay , Cian Monaghan, Daragh McDevitt , Daithi Wade, Aaron Threadgold, Finn O’Rourke, Eoin Lumsden, Lorcan Butler, Jackson Pettibone
On the near pitch our lads got stuck in from the get go and using the breeze to their advantage, led at half time by 12 points to 2. Against the breeze in the 2nd half they played some super passing football, with excellent taken scores and stubborn defending resulting in a final score of 23-4. Ben was excellent in goals with strong defensive performances by Joel, Aaran and both Jack Mulligan and Jack Nash. Adam and Diarmuid in midfield covered every blade of grass and provided some good ball for our forwards with brilliant play by Louis, Cillian, Matthew, Dara and Peter up front.
The future for St Colmcilles is bright!
