Minor defeat in Millbrook
Wolfe Tones 2-12 Oldcastle 1-07
Wolfe Tones came to Millbrook to take on the U17s this evening (06/07/2021), bringing just twelve players with them. This put the Oldcastle team out of sync from the start, but despite that they kept with the visitors, and the scores were level at the break at five points apiece.
The second half started well for Wolfe Tones with a quick point. A missed Oldcastle goal then saw the ball travel the length of the pitch in the other direction and result in a goal for the opposition, followed by two more points. Now five adrift, Oldcastle goalie Eoin Muldoon sent the ball out to Eoin Smith, on to Ryan Kevin, Lloyd Colleran and dropped lovely in to the battling Rory Crawley who smashed it to the back of the net. Wolfe Tones were doing a lot of hauling and mauling to very little supervision by the ref, but Oldcastle were to rue a missed penalty. Ryan Kevin pointed a Brian Hetherton free to reduce the difference to a single point, but a Wolfe Tones goal straight after saw them gain the upper hand, and dominate the end of the match.
