Under 10 challenge match versus Padraig Pearses
Ballinasloe, 23/5/2012
Our under 10 team played their first match of the season away to Padraig Pearses of Roscommon on the 23/5/2012. We had ten players that travelled on the day: Eoin McCarthy, Cian McCarthy, Patryk Gitlar, Peter Mulvihill, Niall Scully, Shaun Fox, Darragh Elliot, Evan Farrell and Cian O'Suilleabhain. We started very well with Jack Mc Cullagh sweeping up a lot of ball around the middle. The tackling and quick pulling of Darragh Elliot and Cian O'Suilleabhain kept the ball moving forward. In the first half Niall Scully and Eoin McCarthy scored 2 points, and Cian Mccarthy scrambled a close range goal. Pearses' subs made a difference but they found our goalie Peter Mulvihill in excellent shot stopping form and his long clearances relieved the pressure on our defence. In the second half Peter came out of goals to score a great goal. Cian Mccarthy and Shaun Fox scored a point while Jack McCullagh scored 2 from long range. At the other end, although injured Eoin McCarthy hit great puckouts and Patryk Gitlar used his speed to snuff out danger. Cian O'Suilleabain did a great job as captain for the day. 2-9 was great scoring for under 10s in an impressive performance.
final score 2-9 to 4-3 (a draw)
