Extended Squad, Brid Dillane, Cain Mc Sweeney, Saoirse Leahy, Jack Connolly, Cillian and Martin McDonagh.
This was always going to be a tough opener for the u12 team and although the result was 1-4 they can take a lot of heart in the manner in which they played today. Askeaton had the lions share of the ball early on and went 1-0 after 9 mins with a fine goal. Kieran McNamara made a great tackle on 14 mins to save a certain goal. Nathan Wright and Anna Shine were playing well in midfield and were very busy in a defensive role alongside the lively Conor Shine and Adam Robb. Padraic O Connor and Kieran McNamara were our pair up front today. Askeaton attacked Kubaj Nijinski and Adam Robbs wing a lot in the first half but the boys managed to hold their own against much bigger opponents. Conor Shine saved a goal on 16 mins when he cleared off the line. Brid Dillane came on after 20 mins for Kuba and she did very well to clear the ball off our line just after coming on. Askeaton went 2-0 on 26 mins and Padraic O Connor was unlucky as his cross/shot went wide on 28 mins. Glin came out of the blocks very fast in the second half and Anna Shine pulled a fine goal back for us 2 mins after the restart. Cain Mc Sweeney came at half time also. Gearoid Woulfe made a vital interception for a corner on 36 mins. Anna Shine had a stormer of a game today but young Sean Adams was outstanding in goals, He made 4 great saves today. His first was great dive to block a shot from close range on 50 mins for a corner. Anna managed to clear the ball in a frantic goal mouth scrambe form the corner. Gearoid made a great block on 53 mins to save us from going 3-1 down and Adam Robb made 2 great tackles inside the box also in the later stages. Askeaton made it 3-1 on 57 mins with a powerful shot and they scored a lucky goal right at the death after Sean Adams managed to make a great save only to see the ball fall to the feet of an Askeaton player who scored from close range. the result went against us today but the player should take heart from their motivation to keep going right to the end.
