U13’s Top Off Fantastic Year With County Final Success
On Thursday night last our U13 Footballers travelled to Mick Neville Park to take on Ahane in the Division 2 Championship County Final. The Dromcollogher/ Broadford side started the game very well moving the ball from attack to defence getting a few vital scores to leave the score at half time Dromcollogher/ Broadford 1-4 to Ahane 2 points. The second half came down to a battle with Ahane attacking in waves, with Dromcollogher/ Broadford finding it very difficult to get the ball up the field by getting a goal mid into the second half. Ahamed got the score down to a two-point game with six minutes remaining, Dromcollogher/ Broadford defence held their nerves to come away with a mighty victory to claim a county title for these courageous players. The final scoreline on the night was Dromcollogher/ Broadford 2-4 to Ahane 1-5. This was a brilliant achievement for these bunch of players which they will remember for the rest of their lives. The panel was as follows: S. Pierce, B. Gore, F. Moloney, M. McCarthy, A. Cussen, D. J. Cussen, A. Curtin, S. O’Flynn, O. Stokes, B. Lenihan, C. McGarry. M. Kelly, R. Mulcahy, C. Burke, T.

This was a proud night for the management and the players well done. After the game the county board presented the cup to the joint captains.
