Southern Gaels 4.6 v Longford Slashers 1.4, April 16,2018

Oh what a night – late on a Monday in Pairc Chiarain, where the wind blew a gale and the rain swept the field, however the Under 16’s made a landmark victory for the year ahead. The mentors of Cormac & Enda deserve great praise to get a team to the pitch, but once they got there and knocked off the cobwebs, they dominated this game and showed the great potential this team has. The defence of Evan and Cian O’S continued from where they left off last year and showed what a solid partnership they are, with each out doing the other in their defensive duties and passing accurately. The brilliant Half backline of Michael, Cian Mac and Aaron pushed up the defensive line, forced the Longford lads back and then sprayed the ball to all patches of the forward line eloquently, especially in the horrendous conditions. The dynamic midfield of Chulainn and Seán dominated against a powerful opposition duo and dictated the pace of the game. In the forward line, Eoin P. made a fantastic debut and hurled his heart out while showcasing a wonderous complement of hurling skills – a star of the future for sure. Poor Tomak  got injured early but played bravely through the pain by retreating to the goalposts to unleash Cian G, who’s deft touches and sweet passing set up manys a score. Niall pulled off a marvellous Hattrick of goals by menacingly attacking the opposition’s backline with great success. In the full forward line, the tall lads of Rory & Eoin Mac backed up their physical prominence by battling the hardest and earning many turnovers which led to numerous scores. It was a wonderful Team performance who gave it everything for the cause and showed great signs for the years to come. Final Score: Team: Cian Geary (0.1), Cian O’Suilleabhain, Evan Farrell, Aaron Lynch, Cian McCarthy, Michael Dolan, Sean Murphy (0.1), Tomak Idzikowski, Eoin Pillion (0.1), Chulainn Dowd (0.3), Niall Scully (3.0), Eoin McCarthy (1.0), Rory Kilgarriff.
