Hoping to build on our recent home victory over Achill last Thursday, our U13s fell agonisingly short in our away match against Islandeady yesterday evening, despite having just 16 players.
We got off to a terrible start - we couldn’t clear our lines and the hosts clocked up an impressive lead by half time. After a quick rearrangement of our players’ positions at half time, we finally started eating in to Islandeady’s lead with three excellent goals. Some heroic goalkeeping by Jason Lawless ensured we stayed in the game right to the final whistle but victory eluded us in the end despite having three fantastic goal chances.
It was a battling performance from our boys and their coaches are very proud of the efforts shown by them all. Hard luck lads. Next up are Louisburgh on Thursday week, 9th June.
