In the U14 Football Warrenpoint v An Riocht played at Milltown, An Riocht lost by four on a 6-11 to 5-10 score line. The ‘Point were a taller team, won possession easier and covered the ground quicker but for the most part An Riocht battled away and a great final quarter when we outscored the home team 4-2 to 0-1 almost brought a share of the spoils.
Curtis Flanagan was excellent between the posts though tired a bit with the excessive amount of kick outs he had to make; Aidan Gribben was magnificent going forward and also did a fair amount of tracking back when not in possession. An Riocht trailed 2-6 to 1-5 at half time and lost the match in the third quarter due to losing their shape, just kicking the ball and not passing it, and too many forwards too static and caught behind their men and lacking the fight to win the ball.
But that last fifteen minutes showed just how good we can be if we want it bad enough.
Team: Curtis Flanagan, Michael Greenan, Ryan Mackey, Shane Quinn, Ryan Quinn, Eoin Killen, Reece Flanagan, Dylan Nugent, Aidan Gribben 3-9, Lorcan Donnan 0-1, Jack Rodgers 1-0, Ryan Cunningham, Mark McVeigh, William Harper, Ben Matthews. Subs Cameron Harper 1-0, Matthew McCartan.
