Mungret St. Pauls 2-7 Crecora Manister 0-5
In Caherdavin on Tuesday 31 May 2022 our Junior footballers took on Crecora Manister in the City East Intermediate Football Final where it was the subs that made an impact.
It was a very low scoring first half so much that there was a call to the sideline to see if twitter had gone down. All the scores came in the first 10 minutes with both sides on two points each. Back out it was Crecora Manister that took the lead for a few minutes while Mungret St. Pauls but there was a lot of pressure on the goals with two missed opportunities the third eventually hit the net. With new legs on the pitch and on the first touch of the ball it was pointed swiftly followed with a second point. This quickly gave Mungret St. Pauls a five point lead. Crecora Manister managed another point from play before Mungret St. Pauls saw the game home with a second goal and final point.
Well done to the players and management. They don’t get a chance to take a break as they are back out again in the County Semi Final.
Both our U-13 teams were out again on Thursday 2 June, with our younger players at home to Belville Gaels our older players travelled to Monaleen.
Both these games were jam packed with skill. Our Division 1 team held a lead for the first half but the second half did not go their way as Monaleen took over and won most of our kickouts. These two sides will meet again but at present Monaleen tops the group with Mungret St. Pauls in second place having only lost this game so far. Final Score Mungret St. Pauls 2-3 Monaleen 2-9.
Our younger team welcomed Belville Gaels to the senior pitch where they put on a great performance, it took them a few minutes to settle into the game but once they had they used great team work to weave the ball up the pitch and take a score. Well done to our younger team who also are second in their group just under Monaleens second team with another six teams to play. Final Score Mungret St. Pauls 2-8 Belville Gaels 2-4
Mungret St. Pauls would like to wish all our players the very best of Luck as they sit their Leaving Cert and Junior Cert, remember your results don’t define you. “Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated.” —R. Collier
