U 12 Boys

Our under 12 ‘A’ and ‘C’ teams played in the final stage of the divisional Go Games earlier today and there was double disappointment at the results.  However although both teams were unlucky to be beaten there were some great performances and all can be truly proud of their efforts. 

The ‘C’ team was desperately unlucky to lose out with the last kick of the game to Fr.Sheehy’s.  In a tremendous display, the boys and girls battled bravely against an excellent Clogheen side and could so easily have won but were cruelly denied by a goal in the dying seconds.  Trailing at the break the side battled bravely to lead briefly during the 2nd half.  The 2nd period saw a fascinating battle with both sides giving their all.  As the game entered the final seconds, extra time looked on the cards but Fr.Sheehy’s goaled and won on a score of 2-4 to 1-04.

The ‘A’ team faced a fancied Moyle Rovers side in the South final and having opened well the sides were level after 10 minutes.  Two quick Moyle Rovers goals gave them a half-time advantage.  Now playing against a breeze and with Rovers adding a point in the opening minute the Commercials task looked impossible. Commercials produced a brilliant second half and with just seven minutes remaining, the sides were separated by just two points.  Moyle Rovers eventually won by 2-8 to 1-6.
