U12 Boys Co League Phase 2- Rd 1 Spa v Laune Rangers
Round 1 of our Division 1 County League commenced in fine fashion on Sunday with an away win to Laune Rangers.
Points by Fionn Daly, JJ O Donoghue, Jack O Donoghue & Shane Doolan coupled by goal and two points from Luke Doolan & a series of fine points by Joey McCarthy saw Spa lead at half time 1-09 to 0-8 having played with the breeze in the first half.
Laune Rangers scored a goal early in the second half which tested our resolve, however some very solid defensive displays by Daragh Brosnan, Adam Herlihy, Jake Leahy & Maurice Joy with some terrific saves by Caolainn Mitchell helped keep our boys out in front.
Jack O Donoghue stormed through with a goal for ourselves and another two goals one each for Maurice Joy & Shane Doolan gave a comfortable margin in the end but one which was harsh on a very strong performance from Laune Rangers. Final Score Spa 4-15 Laune Rangers 2-11. Next Up is An Ghaeltacht next week at home
Our Second Team on their first night out together put on a super performance trailing Laune Rangers by a point at half time. This team the majority of which are U-10’s played gallantly but just faded away in the second half to a stronger and older Laune Rangers team.
U12 Girls Spa v Annascaul
Spa 2-4 Annascaul 4-10
Played in Spa and no referee showed up for fixture. However, both teams decided to play with their own referee. This was a very evenly matched game for the first half. The visitors scored some brilliant scores in the second half and we just ran out of time to narrow the deficit.
Great team performance with excellent work from Casey Mulrey, Muireann Spillane, Caoimhe O’Neill, Siofra Brosnan and Sarah Griffin.
