posted 19 Jun 2012, 15:09 by Bart Barrins
We made the long journey to Oxfield on Tuesday evening minus a good number of our panel. It took the young lads two quarters to realise they were in a game. At the end of the first quarter we trailed 5 v 1 with our sole score coming from Dáire Barrins after an interchange of passes from Ronan Wilson and Oisin Flynn. The second quarter was the worst one of the game and we ended up at the halftime break 11 v 1.

At this point our team began to play football and to play as a team. We started to put in some good tackles and put some very good movements together. Owen Gillard put over a good score after a good pass from James Tully and Jamie Reape and losing this quarter 2 v 1.

In the final quarter we continued with our good play with Ruairí Gallagher, Brian Durkan, Ross Gilmartin and Fergal Boland. Spurred on by the older lads Daniel Ruane cleared two balls off the line. We got one final score from Oisin Flynn and yet again only lost this quarter by one score.

Team: Brian Durkan, Ross Gilmartin, Fergal Boland, Daniel Ruane, Ruairí Gallagher, Dáire Barrins, Ronan Wilson, Jamie Reape, Oisín Flynn, James Tully, Owen Gillard
