U18 Football Clann Na Gael v An Riocht

At the U18 Football Clann Na Gael v An Riocht played in Newry, An Riocht drew 3-10 to 2-13. This was a poor performance and only U16 players John Joe Eakins, Christopher Flanagan and Philip Curran could be happy with their game. It will take the ‘Minor’ players to step up if we are to have any chance in the South Down Championship. An Riocht led seven nil after ten minutes but trailed eleven nine by half time. A good third quarter had us lead sixteen eleven before Clanns levelled it again and despite twice going ahead in the closing minutes we were unable to hold out for the win.


Team: Thomas Sloan, John Joe Eakins, Shane Cunningham, Liam Rodgers, Daniel Hardy, Christopher Flanagan 1-2, Conor Clarke 1-2, Dane Matthews, Philip Curran 0-1, Ronan Campbell 1-3 (pen, 2f), Eoin Sloan 0-2, Jack Rafferty, Paddy McComiskey.
