U14 Div 1 Doora/Barefield 3-09 to St. Breckans 1-09


Round 11 of the U 14 Div 1 championship produced another closely contested game between Doora/Barefield and St Breckans in Lisdoonvarna. The final score of 3-09 to 1-09 would suggest that Doora/Barefield won comfortably but that was not the case. A lightning fast start to the game for the home side saw them take a 1-04 to no score lead in the first 15 mins of the game. St Breckans were well in control at this stage, however some super work by Doora/Barefields Maurice Nugent resulted in the raising of the green flag for the Parish. Further scores by Keelan Butler and another super Darragh Duggan goal resulted in Doora/Barefields leading at the break by 2 points.


The second half resumed with further points from Cian Murphy and a cheeky lob goal from Eoin Thynne that eventually sealed the win for Doora/Barefield  However, the last 10 minutes of the game resulted in a major push from St Breckans and only for some super defending by Peter Collins and his fellow defenders the result may have been different.


Up front, Darragh Duggan, Cian Murphy, Eoin Thynne, and Mickey Whelan excelled. The defence led by team Captain Peter Collins were also excellent including Jack and Tom Hannon, Darragh O Shea and Eoin Campbell. However man of the match for Doora/Barefield had to be Maurice Nugent. His work rate around the midfield area and his direct running through the St Breckans defence were superb.

Minor Division 1 Wolfe Tones 2-11 to Cratloe 1-6

Wolfe Tones got their minor ambitions back on track with a very good 2-11 to 1-6 win away to Cratloe. The Tones stormed into the game with William Flynn pointing in the first 10 seconds. Plenty of ball was going into the Tones forwards but Cratloe themselves scored a smart point from play by Mike Deasy. The turning point of the game came midway through the half when Jack Kelly converted two penalties in 90 seconds. The first for a foul on Flynn, the second for a foul on the always troblesome Daragh Leahy. The half time score of 2-6 to 0-2 was more than enough for the Tones as they closed out the game in the third quarter.
