It’s been a busy few weeks for the U14 squad. The team competed in the Cork Feile Football competition on Saturday 23rd April and just came up short after some great performances. All of the lads gave 100% effort and did the Club proud and they are all looking forward with great anticipation to the Hurling Feile , due to take place on 7th May.
Only 2 days earlier, the team made the trip to Carrigtwohill hoping to maintain their unbeaten staus in the Football League (after victories over Castlelyons and Whitescross) and what a game this turned out to be! Both sides provided real entertainment for all the spectators present. Carraig got off to an ideal start with 1-1 from the boot of Sean O’ Donoghue but Carrigtwohill fought their way back and we were on the backfoot for for a period midway through the half until Colm Murphy, making his debut for the club, grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck and scored 5 great points from play. This inspired further scores from Luke Cremin and Billy Connolly and the pressure on the Carrigtwohill goalmouth ended in an own goal by the home team leaving the half time score at 2-8 to 1-4.
Carrigtwohill came out after half time and scored a couple of early goals to restore parity but our lads kept their composure, no panicking, just focusing on getting the basics right and the rewards followed with some superb points and a third goal. The last ten minutes was real end to end stuff but Carraig na bhFear held out to claim a 4 point victory on a final score of 3-15 to 5-5. So, after 3 games and 3 wins the team are still top of the table. Next up is Blarney at our own pitch on Friday 29th April at 7.30pm.Please come out and show your support for the team.
After that, the focus will be on the small ball with hurling league and Championship games scheduled throughout May. Full updates will follow after these games.
