Underage Training 6-10 boys and girls continues as normal this Saturday.
Spa under 12 boys played their last group game of phase 2 Division 3, away to Legion last Sunday, on very hot and sunny evening. The blues won their game, claiming top spot in division 3A. The golds drew their game, securing 2nd spot in division 3B. They only lost one game in both phases of their county games & that was by a single point. Plus they were under strength on the same night. The blues were unbeaten in all their games in both phases of the county league. The Coaches can’t speak highly enough of these group of boys, their skill, determination, heart is unbelievable. Each & every boy is a credit to Spa GAA club & more importantly to their families. The Coaches would like to thank the families & friends of the boys for their great support, it got us through some tough games this year.
Senior Co League Rd 6:
Spa 3-12 Ardfert 2-8
Aided by the breeze in the opening quarter, Spa’s Mike O’Donoghue kicked four points in quick succession before Paudie Carroll pointed for the visitors. Evan Cronin and Daithi Griffin exchanged further points before Darren Dineen slotted the ball past James Devane for the first goal of the day. Ciaran Spillane replied with a Spa goal at the other end but Ardfert replied immediately when Bobby Regan rattled the net for a second Ardfert goal to make it 1-5 to 2-2 coming up on half time. Spa were attacking again shortly after but Evan Cronin’s effort was well saved by Nicky Sullivan as points from Eoin Cronin and Mike O’Donoghue gave Spa the advantage at the break 1-7 to 2-2.
Shane Cronin and John Egan swapped points before David Spillane made a long run through and scored Spa’s second goal and Shane Cronin hit the back a minute later to stretch the Spa lead to 3-8 to 2-3. Two points from Michael McCarthy extended that lead before John Egan (2) and Brandon Barrett exchanged points with Evan Cronin(2) and late scores from Ardfert’s Paudie Carroll and Shane Griffin closed out the game to finish Spa 3-12 Ardfert 2-8.
