Under 21 Footballers go down to stronger Fr.O’Neills outfit

East Cork U21 B Football Championship 1st Round, Sat 5th March Fr. O’Neills 7-7 Carraig na bhFear 1-04. No joy for our Under 21 footballers who suffered a comprehensive 7-7 to 1-04 defeat to a slick Fr. O’Neills outfit on Saturday last in Aghavine. While the final scoreline gives no doubt as to the result, it doesn’t tell the whole story and this young Carraig team gave everything they had on Saturday last. The sides were level after 20 minutes of play, 0-04 to 1-1, when the game swung decisively. A Carraig shot rattled the crossbar and from the resulting clearance, O’Neills swept downfield to poach a second goal and take control of the tie. Another goal and a brace of quick points before the break and suddenly the scoreboard read 0-04 to 3-3 in the home sides favour. A powerful second half display from O’Neills put the game well beyond doubt. They will have a major say in the destination of this championship. For Carraig that is the end of the road, an unfortunate outcome of a championship which is rushed through at the beginning of the season. The lads will now have to rebound for the Junior Football championship in a few weeks time and they will also have their eye on the U21 Hurling championship later this summer. Keep working hard...

UPDATE:: Under 21 Football Championship confirmed – Sat 5th March

Rescheduled for Sat 5th March, 11:30am in Aghavine! East Cork U21 B Football Championship 1st round Carraig na bhFear v Fr. O’Neills Sat 5th March 11:30am in Aghavine. After last weekends late cancellation due to unplayable pitches, our U21 footballers will take on Fr. O’Neills this Saturday in Aghavine. With the bad weather over the winter, pitch availability is still at a premium throughout the division at this time of year so a toss for venue has resulted in the game being staged in Aghavine, home to Fr. O’Neills. A tough tie made a little bit tougher, but the lads will be up for the battle on Saturday. We encourage all our supporters to come along on Saturday and get behind the lads.  Best of luck to Nicky, Teddy, William and all the team as they look to advance to the quarter finals.  ...
