U14 Boys: Spa 2-16 Glenflesk 5-14
A great game of football that could have gone either way until the last few minutes resulting in Spa losing to Glenflesk in the league at home. Glenflesk were superior for the first fifteen minutes with some excellent scores. However, our young team replied with class points to narrow the deficit. We played great football with excellent passing and unlucky to register a few more scores.
Great play from the full back line of Chris Healy, David O Sullivan and Cian Russell. Our attacking half back line lead by Danny Coffey. Forward line never gave up and up until the last few minutes we were just one point down with great scores from Luke O Neill, Oran Daly, Kalvin O Sullivan, Aidan Cronin, Emmet Spillane and Liam O Leary. Sub goalie Conor Sowerby played his part taking over from Aaron O Connor who pulled off great saves to keep us in the game.
Overall an entertaining well-balanced team, who no doubt will learn from this loss. They will develop stronger as a team with the help from management of Michael Finnegan, David O Sullivan, Des Spillane and Pat O Neill in the next round of the league.
Well done to all the boys and girls who played fun games against Glenflesk last Thursday night. Great skill and teamwork were evident after all the practice on Saturday mornings.
Senior Ladies Co League Div 2 Spa 3-12 Milltown/Listry 2-6
The ladies had an excellent result at home to a very strong Milltown/Listry side. The team started very strong with two goals in the opening few minutes from Mags Cronin and Niamh Kearney. Claire Moynihan and Alma O Mahony added to the scoreline along with Saoirse Kelly. Spa were the superior team in the first half holding Milltown/Listry to three scores heading into the second half 3-9 to 1-2. However, the second half the visitors put the pressure on and scored 1-2 before we registered our first score from the very impressive Niamh Kearney. The excellent work from the defence to the midfield helped us keep our lead and win two valuable points in the league. Our senior ladies played well as a team with a great mixture of experience and youth.
