Spa 1-10 Scart/Cordal 1-11
Our minors travelled to Cordal this afternoon and in a game that could have gone either way, we lost by the narrowest of margins.
At the end of the first quarter the sides were level at 0-4 apiece, the Spa points from Liam Spillane (3) and Thomas Cronin. Spa took the lead with three more points from Calum Neher and Liam Spillane (2) before Alan O’Sullivan’s shot was well saved by Scart/Cordal keeper Nathan O’Rourke. A late score from the home side had Spa leading 0-7 to 0-5 at the half time whistle.
Spa started the second half well and a goal from Roiri O’Connor and a point from Oisin Walsh edged Spa ahead by six. Scart/Cordal however kicked an unanswered 1-4 to take the lead going into the final ten minutes. Roiri O’Connor pointed to level the game at 1-9 each, and Liam Spillane edged Spa in front again, but two late points from Scart/Cordal and the game ended Spa 1-10 Scart/Cordal 1-11.
Wishing our injured players a speedy recovery.
Spa are home to St Michael’s Foilmore at 3pm next Saturday March 16th in the final round.
