Seafield was the location for this U12 Division A mid-table battle between our St Colmcilles team and Navan O’Mahony’s on a changeable Monday evening.
With first half dogged play and scoring from Cilles , we went into the break 2 points up with the score at 6-4.
It took a battling Navan who were playing with the wind in the second half to come back and score 14 points against colmcilles 6 leaving the final score at 18-12.
A disappointing end to what was a hard fought match between 2 evenly matched teams.
Team: Aaron Threadgold, Karl Leonard, Cian Monaghan, Louis Farrell, Jackson Pettibone, Daithi Wade, Derry Finlay, Lorcan Butler, Finn O’Rourke, Jack Kelly, Louis McKay, Aaron Grey, Darragh McDevitt, Eoin Lumsden, Dara Van den Walt, Danny Bacon
This game was played parallel to the other one mentioned above. Cilles U12 Boys were backs to the wall for most of the first half playing against a smooth Navan O’Mahony’s team that were scoring for fun.
Despite going behind by 7 points at one stage, our boys battled back bravely against a physically bigger Navan outfit.
Had they been a little more composed in front of the goals they would have won the game going down by a solitary point 19 – 18.
