The team performed brillantly for all but 4 minutes of the game in the final quarter which cost us the game.

The first quarter was very tight but we lead at the end of it 4 v 3 with scores from Oisin Flynn, Dáire Barrins and Ronan Wilson.

The second quarter saw us play some lovely foot passing football and we lead 6 v 4 at the end of it with Andrew Blakeney and Oisin scoring again. Fergal Boland, Daniel Ruane, Colm Naughton and Ruairí Gallagher were dominant at the back and Liam Donnegan playing great in goal.

The third quarter was our strongest but we wasted too many opportunities in front of goal with our sole score coming from Rian Winters after good play by Eoin Duffy and James Tully. 

Going into the last quarter we lead 7 v 6  but despite winning the throw in we lost the ball in a good position and Gaels broke down the field to score. Eli O'Neill in his first game made a good save but it ended with the rebound going over the bar. Three kickouts later and three more scores put paid to our chances but fair dues to the lads they played on and were unlucky not to score near the end.

Team: Liam Donnegan, Eli O'Neill, Fergal Boland, Ruairí Gallagher, David Coggins, Colm Naughton, Daniel Ruane, Andrew Blakeney, Ronan Wilson, Matthew Blakeney, Dáire Barrins, Oisín Flynn, James Tully, Owen Gillard, Rian Winters, Eoin Duffy
