You would be forgiven for thinking that it was the middle of Winter because on Saturday 30th June when our under 14 team played Currin in the league campaign it was cold, wet, windy and underfoot conditions were very slippery but both teams copped fairly-well with the situation to produce an entertaining game of football. Goals win games and there was never a better example of that than in a windswept Pairc Naomh Mhuire as Currin earned the victory on a final score-line Rockcorry 2-12 Currin 7-11.
Playing with the aid of the wind, Currin dominated the opening period and went straight for the jugular and enjoyed a commanding 0-2 to 3-7 lead after the first quarter. The second quarter was evenly contested with both teams notching over two points apiece to leave the score 0-4 to 3-9 at the midway point. During the third quarter both teams played some fabulous football during horrific conditions and similar to the second period it was evenly contested but unfortunately we could not close the deficit and Currin maintained a healthy advantage, leading 1-9 to 5-10. Trailing by thirteen points with still fifteen minutes to play the lads produced a very gutsy display and showed courage in the face of adversity and deserve the highest commendation as every player dug deep but sadly it was not to be our day as Currin secured the victory on a score Rockcorry 2-12 Currin 7-11.
