Mungret St Pauls 2-6, Fr Casey’s 6-9
Overall our boys played with grit and determination from the start of this game and matched Fr Caseys in all areas of the pitch on Monday 12 July 2021. The score line was not a true reflection of how this game went.
This team is improving and are well capable of competing in the top division. Our last group game is against Bruff in two weeks time.
Our U-11 parents had to travel out the Tipperary road but stopped just before crossing the border when they travelled to Doon on Tuesday 13 July 2021. 26 players in all were there to play for Mungret St. Pauls in the warm sunshine. Both Doon and Mungret St. Pauls fielded two teams with everyone getting game time. Well done to our two teams, very impressive performances by both. Seeing huge improvement every time we play. Future looks very bright for Mungret St.Pauls.
Our Juniors had a busy night last Friday with a double header at home v St. Ailbes and Doon.
Each and every player tried their hardest but unfortunately things didn’t go their way on the night. Great to see that we can field 2 adult teams of a summers evening!
Superb 3-7 to 1-7 win for the U16s on Tuesday 6th July at home v Tournafulla/Ballyagran.
The match was played in wet conditions and the outcome was in doubt until the very end. We now have four points in the group with one match remaining before the knockout pairings are decided.
A terrific performance from an incredibly hard-working team.
On Thursday night, our U10s travelled west to Croagh Kilfinny for some match action. We were very well matched against our super hosts with some strong skills on display. Keep up the great work girls!
On Wednesday 7th July our U8s headed to Crecora Camogie Club for an evening of matches. Some great action on the night from our Camogie stars of the future. Keep up the great work girls!
Division 3 Mungret St. Pauls 3-13 St. Patricks 0-11
Moving the game up a day to Tuesday 13 July 2021 our players were ready to go when they played St. Patricks in Mungret. This was a pleasure to watch as the U-17 team players put in an outstanding performance. There was some fantastic football from our players who were aged from 15 to 17 years. This was a great display of football.
Division 1 Mungret St. Pauls 5-14 Kildimo Pallaskenry 0-9
From the off this Mungret St. Pauls team had the play book in their control when they travelled to Pallaskenry on Wednesday 14 July 2021 to play hosts Kildimo Pallaskenry. There was evidence this group have worked on their team work as they played as a unit throughout, like the division 3 team the display of football skills in Mungret St. Pauls at this age group is positive going forward.
Well done to all, fantastic to see so many players at this age group.
U-13 DIVISION 2 FOOTBALL
Mungret St. Pauls 1-6 Kildimo Pallaskenry 2-2
Thursday 15 July 2021 will be a day engraved on many of these young players’ minds. In Kildimo, our younger group of U-13 players took on Kildimo Pallaskenry, having taken a heavy defeat previously in hurling they were not expecting much but they did not let that stop them putting everything they had into the game. Mungret St. Pauls started strong with the lead but Kildimo Pallaskenry took on the challenge and put it up to our players who did not back down and there were some strong shoulders put in and direct passes used. There was an unexpected stoppage to the game when a neighbouring dog had to be removed from the pitch which only added to the excitement as in the closing minutes of the game Mungret St. Pauls had a very slim lead when a Kildimo Pallaskenry penalty was called, our goalie stood, showing no signs of nervousness, the ball was struck to the left hand side just as our goalie went in unison with the ball got his hand in to rebound it. Kildimo Pallaskenry stood up to the task at hand and went again for another score only to hit the crossbar, and again to hit the upright this time and back out the pitch to be brought out the field when the full time whistle blew. This was a fantastic win for our players, well done to all players and coaches.
Saturday 17th July (a very hot one!) saw another U7 blitz this time out at Ahane. Well done to all 26 players that sweated their way through the rotating matches, they’re really improving across all areas. Meanwhile, back at base, the U6 were going through their paces in their usual Saturday morning session. A well deserved relaxing afternoon and weekend was earned.
