NA PIARSAIGH GAA CLUB NOTES
UNDER 14 FOOTBALL
Congratulations go to the management and entire group of players who were crowned Under 14 County Champions in the B grade on Sunday against a gallant Galtee Gaels side.
Played in breezy conditions on the Childers Road at Claughaun GAA Club it was our lads who made the early running. Two fine points inside the first few minutes from Mark Hogan and Eoin Brosnan settled us well and we were playing some great football. However the scoreboard was not reflecting our dominance which is always a dangerous situation and this scoreline remained the same going into the water break. The second part of the first half proved crucial and where we took a stranglehold on the game. First the very industrious Mark Hogan was on hand to raise our first green flag of the contest. This was swiftly followed by Jamie Quigley who slotted cooly home our second goal on the stroke of half time
Half time it was 2-2 to 0-1 in our favour.
We started the third quarter in similar fashion and by the water break we had added another two goals courtesy of two great strikes from Tadhg Mullane and Tommy Glynn to make it 4-2 to 0-1
The final few minutes we added two more points from Daragh Horkan and Tommy Glynn to seal an excellent victory on a final score line of Na Piarsaigh 4-4 Galtee Gaels 0-1
