Well Done to Kerry
Well done to the Kerry GAA team & management on their win over Clare last Saturday – and also to our Spa player Oran O’Neill who was playing in the Primary Schools game at half time.
U12 Boys Spa v An Ghaeltacht
U12 A: The game got off to a blistering start with a goal apiece inside the first 5 minutes. Following this, both sides traded points for much of the remainder of the half. There were some fabulous passages of play, defensive skill and attacking guile on display by both sides, but a scoring burst which included two goals just before half time gave our boys an advantage going in at the break leading 3-07 to 2-04. Having played against the breeze in the first half, An Gaeltacht started the second half strongly aided by a strong breeze blowing up from the town end of the pitch. They scored 2-06 in total in the second half, however our boys defended stoutly and were not found wanting in attack either and kicked 2-03 ourselves against the breeze to record a great win with final score of 5-10 to 4-11.
U12 B: Playing against a strong breeze in the first half, Spa did very well to go in only 2 points down at half time. In the second half Spa came out fighting and levelled things up with 10 minutes to go. However, An Gaeltacht proved too strong in the end and the game finished 4-04 to 2-06. It was a great performance by Spa considering most of the team is made up from our U10’s.
Our U10 team travelled to Dr. Crokes on Saturday morning with both clubs fielding 2 teams. They played 2 great games of football, showing great skill and determination. Well done boys.
