Busy Week for Under 12 Boys Football
A very busy week for the Under 12 boys who were in action on Tuesday evening and Saturday afternoon. On Tuesday evening Teams 2 and 3 played in rescheduled football grading games that had been postponed due to poor weather early in March. A big thank you to the players and mentors who made the trip to Fingallians in Swords for a 6:40 pm throw in including a special mention to our guest from the 2006 team. Unfortunately they were on the wrong side of a very tight scoreline despite valiant efforts on the part of the ‘tenacious 10’. Team 2 hosted Ballyboden and played great football to record yet another win.
Saturday saw the last of the football grading matches. Team 1 were at home to a strong Cuala side and, despite a battling performance, came up short in the end. Due to a late cancellation, Team 2 had a well-deserved rest after their exertions on Tuesday evening. There was no rest for Team 3 however who took on local rivals Kilmacud Crokes in Ballycorus. In a cruel reflection of Tuesday’s game they came away without a victory despite another great team performance. Well done to all – despite the final scores this weekend there was great skill and determination shown that will stand the lads in good stead in the tough encounters to come.
