U-12 Finals Day:

Athea; 3 – 03

Fr. Casey’s White: 1 -06

An impressive performance by both teams in a hard fought contest that Athea just won out in the end. In a close first half a Jamie Quinn goal had Athea ahead with half time approaching only to concede a goal in last play of the half to give Fr.Casey’s  a 1 point lead at the break. Athea scored a point at the start of the 2nd half to level the score.After a few missed scoring chances by Fr.Casey’s a Tomás Ahern goal gave Athea the lead. Fr.Casey’s dominated for the next period of play with 4 un answered points. Athea leveled things up again with another point. With time running out, Athea under pressure again in defence, worked the ball out and up the right wing a with a cross field pass into the waiting substitute Jamie Lee Flynn who scored an excellent goal to give Athea a 3 point  lead. It was a very nervous final minute as Athea bravely defended another Fr. Fr.Casey’s attack but eventually held out for a hard earned but well deserved victory.  Well done Athea U-12’s.
