Our U21 Footballers played out an exciting draw with Ballylanders on Sunday afternoon at the field. With both teams assured of progress heading into the game, there was still a good bite to the game that ended all square at 0-9 to 1-6. Ballylanders were 0-3 o 0-1 ahead at the first water break with David O’Shaughnessy getting us off the mark. Fiachra Butler got our second before Landers pulled two clear again. Joey Rushe made it a one point game but a double from O’Shaughnessy pulled us ahead for the first time. Tomas Sheahan had a 45’ but Ballylanders hit a goal with the final kick off the game to leave it 0-6 to 1-5 in their favour at the half.
Two marks from O’Shaughnessy levelled proceedings with Ballylanders retaking the lead prior to the final waterbreak. But excellent build up play saw O’Shaughnessy fouled as he tidied himself up to level the game late on with neither side able to find the winning score.
The U21s will be back in action this Sunday as they take on Shannon Gaels in the quarter-finals of the A Championship in Mick Neville Park at 12noon.
Team: Jamie Dolan, Callum Daly, Eoin Condon, Shane Hanrahan, Niall Barry, Alan McGrath, Eddie Murphy, Luke Gammell, Paudie McMahon, Joey Rushe, Paul O’Shaughnessy, Tomas Sheahan, Fiachra Butler, Sean McMahon, David O’Shaughnessy. Subs: Tadhg Hanley, Colm O’Flaherty, Ciaran Bourke, Callum Ryan (inj).
