OOLA GAA NOTES: U14 Football: Oola 6-12 to Monaleen 7-4. The U14s played their first competitive championship game of the year in Monaleen last Wednesday night. The lack of match time was eveident as Oola were very slow to get going and Monaleen raced into a 2 – 1 to no score lead within the first 5 minutes. This signalled a much needed wake up call for Oola and scores from Cian O Donovan & Paddy Quinlan & Jack Downey put Oola in front mid way through the first half. However more sloppy play from Oola was punished by Monaleen with two more goals before the half time whistle.

In the early stages of the second half Oola faired much better and once again built up a lead through. With all of our forwards registering scores by the end of the game. However more poor play and a lapse of concentration allowed Monaleen to punish Oola through some more goals. While a win is a win there is still a massive amount of room for improvement. All players are asked to continue with training as we face a diffucult match against South Liberties Wednesday week. Panel on the night was Ciaran Bourke, David Bulter, William O Mahony, Dubhan O Grady, Cathal Hallissey, Padraig Ryan, Ivan O Dwyer, Mikey O Brien, Jack Ryan, Jason O Brien, Jack Downey, Paddy Quinlan, Owen Doyle, Bob Purcell, Cian O Donovan, Oisin Tierney, Darragh O Sullivan, Owen Kemp
