Our under 12 footballers kick started their Gerry’s Prepared Veg Division 2B league campaign on Saturday 7th June when they travelled to play Corduff. This was a thoroughly entertaining game of football played at a fast pace and intensity and included some wonderful scores from both sets of players but in the end a deadly five minute spell, at the beginning of the second half, that yielded five goals ultimately proved the difference and sealed the win for Corduff on a score-line Corduff 6-8 Rockcorry 5-6.
We started the match at a blistering pace and moved the ball swiftly into scoring positions and executed some lovely scores to lead at the half-time stage by six points, Corduff 1-4 Rockcorry 3-4. The second half was completely different as Corduff, aided by a strong breeze, totally controlled the opening exchanges and quickly overturned the six point lead we had built up at the interval into a ten point advantage. As the game entered the final five minutes the boys and girls put in a wholehearted performance and they managed to kick over some great scores but unfortunately time ran out and when they final whistle sounded Corduff claimed the victory on a final score-line Corduff 6-8 Rockcorry 5-6.
