U17s Boys

Athea 6-9  Mountcollins 1-7

The boys had a great win in Athea last Wednesday evening in our first game of the season. We started slowly and were lucky to be level 1-3 each at the first water break. We got on top in the second quarter, as all around the pitch everyone upped their game, by half time we led 4-6 to 1-5.

The second half was a tighter affair with us having to do a lot of defending, and picking off scores on the break. Overall a great team performance.

Team- Donacha Barrett, Conor Mullane, Rory O’Mahony, Tadhg Ahern, Gearoid O’Sullivan, James Lee, Darragh Reidy, Evan Curry, Rory Cleary, James Broderick, James Hunt, Michael Walsh, Cillian O’Connor, Ciarán Hunt and Tomás Ahern
