U14 FOOTBALL FEILE
Na Fianna U14 Footballers bowed out of the Feile
League at the A Quarter Final stage to hosts Rhode last Saturday morning which
was being played in a blitz format 15 mins a side from the Q/F to Final over
the weekend. This was a tight low scoring encounter with Rhode coming out on
top by just 1-03 to 1-01. Na Fianna opened the scoring with their goal on 3
mins blasted to the net by Jack Cleary. Na Fianna had a number of chances to
add to their tally but were denied as Rhode got off the mark with a point on 11
mins and this is how it remained until stoppage time when Rhode added a point
followed by their goal as Na Fianna keeper Martin Kelly made a double save but
somehow Rhode managed to scramble it over the line at the third attempt. This
saw Rhode lead at the break 1-02 to 1-00. In the second half both sides added
just 1 point apiece as Rhode held on to claim the win.
NA FIANNA: Martin Kelly (Capt.), Ban Colton, Geordi O’Meara,
David Owens, Scott Bolton, Sean Rattigan, Fergal Dolan, Diarmuid Finneran,
Dylan Cahill, Jack Kelly, Cathal Young, Alex Cuddy, Jack Cleary (1-00), Jason
Hanley, Robbie Gallagher (0-01).
