U-14’s never gave up despite losing out to Ballinabrackey in the Spring FL Final

Ballinabrackey 4-13 Oldcastle 2-09
Our U-14’s met Ballinabrackey in a tough Spring Football League Div 4 Final in Dunganny this evening (19 June 2018). A great start, with points from Ryan Kevin and Eoin Muldoon and a goal from Eoin Smith, saw them lead by 1-03 to 0-01 after ten minutes. Ballinabrackey clawed back a few points however, and when they scored a goal against the run of play to level it up at the 20 minute mark, it was game on. An Oldcastle point was then given as a wide, while the opposition went on to add another goal and point, to lead by four at the break.

The second half belonged to Ballinabrackey, despite some fine play and scores by Oldcastle, the opposition proved to be the bigger, more physical team, well able to charge downfield and take scores. Oldcastle never gave up and battled to the end, with fine individual performances all over the pitch. However, what a superb run through this Spring League that Oldcastle have had.

A great run of training sessions, tough matches and team development, see them look forward to the Féile Peile na nÓg national U-14 football tournament coming to Oldcastle on Friday June 29th!
