Teamwork alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much.
County U19B Football Championship Final
The jubilant cheers of the large Knockaderry support rang out over the northside of Limerick city in the crisp winter air on Friday evening to herald the clubs victorious u19 footballers who claimed county honours in great style. The result, which was inevitable for some while towards the end as we opened up a gap on the scoreboard in the final ten minutes, was met with great scenes of delight by all at the full time whistle as we added an u19 football county title to the clubs growing roll of honor. Indeed it may not be the last county title coming to the club in 2021 as we maintain a keen interest in u21 hurling and football and are just 120 minutes away from a possible title at junior B football, but it is the first and it was secured showing the hallmarks of pervious successful teams from our little club – spirit, determination and an abundance of skill. Banogue for their part were worthy finalists and maintained the battle until the end but crucial goals, three in the second half, proved decisive in this contest.
The first quarter dominance had Knockaderry firmly in command, leading 1.4 to 0.1, our opening goal coming from the boot of Gary Stroin after some great interplay through the pitch in the build up. We would wait however until the dying moments of the half before increasing that tally with Banouge finding their rhythm and kicking three unanswered points to cut the gap to a goal, and it was that Gary Storin goal that separated the sides at the short whistle, 1.5 to 5. Mike Molloy’s searing run and cool finish to the net pushed the lead to eight on the 42min but Banogue would respond and cut that deficit to five as they raised a green flag of their own in a rare breach of our defence just moments after. But it was from here that we thundered home. Jack Molloy was holding firm at the back aided by the Lyons twins, Michael O Connor and Darren Bridgeman as we begun to come forward with more menace and when Colm O Connor’s goal arrived, after a powerful run leaving many defenders in his wake, just three minutes from time it asserted our control of the game on the scoreboard. Jack O Connor, who was very potent all evening and Kieran Storin, his usual industrious self had raised white flags just beforehand to cushion the lead. It was left to Mike Molloy, twin of Jack, to finish the scoring with a well slotted penalty in injury time to carry our score to 4-8 to Banogue’s 1.6.
In what was a difficult week for the Lyons family after the passing of a great club stalwart Paddy on the weekend previous it was fitting that it was his grandsons, Coramc and Darragh, who continue the great lineage, had the honour of jointly accepting the trophy on behalf of the team and club in front a boisterous mix of young and not so young faithful. Well done to each player and to management, county titles are hard won and rare for small clubs which makes them all the more special when they come. These boys have given great entertainment and service over many years but we hope that even better days lay ahead. Cnoc an Doire abu!
