U16 League D3 R3: The Neale 2-11, Kilmeena 0-4

Although Kilmeena U16s lost this clash by 13 points, there were many positives to be drawn from this performance. 

Seven of 18 players from the panel were missing, either through injury or illness, and we had to call up four 14s to field a 13-a-side team. Playing on a sticky pitch after torrential rain, the boys battled hard to stay in touch with The Neale in the first half. While we trailed by five points, 1-4 to 0-2, at half time, there was at least a sense that we could get something from the game.

After the break, the lads kept the ball in hand and enjoy some good possession but The Neale took their chances and scored some fine points from distance. While we had plenty of chances of our own, unfortunately we couldn’t convert them all. There were some fine individual performances and special mention must be made of the U14s who showed great energy and grit in difficult playing conditions. 

Our next game is at home to Naomh Padraig next Thursday, 18th April.
