Under 20 Championship
The RosGal Loss Assessors Ltd. Pearses under 20 Footballers involvement in the championship came to an end on Sunday in Ballyforan. Our lads took on St. Dominics in the Div 1 semi final. Ìn a good first half showing we went in at half time leading 0-8 to 0-3 with a strong defensive showing from Mark Richardson, Seamie Lohan, Eoin Galvin and Lorcan Daly and some good attacking football from Aaron Johnson, Glen Kelly and Conor Payne. The second half turned into a real battle and our lads looked to be through to the final only to concede a last minute goal. With time up, Hubert Darcy who was on top form, showed nerves of steel to slot the equaliser.
20 minutes of injury time was in order, but with the first play we conceded a soft goal. To our lads credit, they scored 3 points to Dominics 1-1 in the first half with Karl Feehily, Charles Nevin, Paul Carey, Daniel Glynn and Andrew Flood working tirelessly. Mike Downey, Oisin Kelly, Aaron Carty, Tom Richardson and Shane Downey along with the rest of our lads never gave in and were fighting until the last whistle but Domincs held out as deserved winners. To score 16 points in winter football and not win is a bitter pill to swallow, but our lads will learn from the experience. Hopefully all of these guys will represent the club at adult level with distinction next year. Thanks to the back room team of Ja Egan, Gerry Kelly, Mike Duighan, Aidan Fallon, Aaron Clogher and Niall Murrary, with physio Frankie Flynn. Thanks also to David Murray, Paul Duke and Cathal Og O Sullivan who trained away based players. Finally, thank you to Paul Flynn of RosGal Loss Assessors Ltd. for his generous sponsorship of this team.
