U13 FOOTBALL SHIELD QUARTER FINAL
Na Fianna Football U13 No 1 Team’s season came to an end last Friday evening with defeat to Ferbane / Belmont in the Shield Quarter Final in Doon on a scoreline of 4-16 to 2-05. This was a much improved performance by Na Fianna from previous games as they battled hard keeping the game competitive into the second half. Ferbane opened the scoring with 1-04 in a row inside the first 10 mins before Na Fianna got off the mark on 13 mins when Kevin Sweeney’s shot in from the wing was met by Jack Fox on the far post to flick to the net for a goal. Thereafter for the remainder of the half Na Fianna outscored Ferbane by 4 points to 2 so at the break there was just 2 points in it as Ferbane led 1-06 to 1-04. Ferbane added the first 2 points of the second half before Na Fianna cut the deficit to just a single point on 3 mins when Kevin Sweeney’s solo run from midfield saw him dispatch Na Fianna’s second goal. Unfortunately this would be as good as it would get for Na Fianna as Ferbane streched clear to claim the win.
NA FIANNA: Sam Dunne, Finn Hassett, Adam Carthy, Tadhg Clear, Brian Connolly, Eoin Dunne, Rory Grehan, Danny Gorman (0-01), Kevin Sweeney (1-00), Cian Malone (0-03), Cein Gorman (0-01), John Greene, Sean Cuskelly, Evan Gorman, Jack Fox (1-00).
SUB: Ronan Brophill (for Finn Hassett).
