Aoibhe Barrins and Seán Carrabine who had gone through four qualifying rounds throughout the county, reached the final where each had 3 opponents for the title of county place kicking champions.
 
The boys competition took place first and after the first round Seán was sharing first with two other boys. In the second round Seán missed two but so did one of the other lads, however the boy from Castlerock hit only 1 miss and was the winner. Seán had to take 7 separate frees from all angles before defeating the lad from Sooey to come second in the competition.
 
In the girls competition Aoibhe made short work of the competition when becoming the only child boy or girl to score all 6 of her first frees to be declared the girls county free taking champion for 2011.
 
Well done to both Seán and Aoibhe who were presented with their awards by Mark Brehony
