The Cilles U12 boys travelled to Senschalstown on a deceptively cold April evening for their first Division A league match. It proved to be a scintillating encounter in the two team battle.
The first squad efficiently built up a comfortable halftime lead through some stellar team play, but Senschalstown managed to bring the sides level early in the second half. The team showed great poise by stringing together a run of points and walked away as comfortable winners.
The second squad faced a strong team who raced out to an early first half lead. Rather than pack it in, our boys dug deep and showed their character by keeping the score line close and were unlucky with a few breaks of the ball and near misses.
In the end, the effort was only just short across the two-team tie, but the boys showed great determination in a losing effort and did the club proud.
