Encouraging display from under 14s against Fishermen

Under 14 football
22 March 2014
Aodh Ruadh 0-11
Killybegs 4-5
Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh

On Saturday afternoon in Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh the under 14s gave what can only be described as a show of exhibition football in their game against a very strong Killybegs team. They were huge underdogs going into the game but made the perfect start with a beautiful point coming from the boot of Michael McKenna straight from the throw-in. Evan McTernan soon followed up with another point and had a third on the score sheet before Killybegs managed to open their account. Most of the play was in the Killybegs half of the field for the first 30 minutes of the game with Caolán Dolan, Owen Doherty, Adam Clarke and Michael McKenna playing out of their skins up front. With a combination of great support play and precision passing the Aodh Ruadh lads had a two point lead at the break.

The second half started with a Killybegs goal, but this did not dampen the spirit of the Ballyshannon men. Pauric Keenaghan, as usual gave a great performance at centre half back along with Tiarnan Dolan, Senan Rooney and Aaron Peach were flawless in defence. Despite the best efforts of the Ernesiders, Killybegs had luck on their side and scored two more goals in the second half and did enough to see them coming out on top at the final whistle. The development game also went very well, with all of the Aodh Ruadh lads giving great performances. Some of the best in this game were Ciaran Hodgin's scoring two beautiful long range points, Donagh McGowan working hard on the wing and Joe Danagher had a good game at the back. The next outing for the lads is away to Naomh Conaill possibly on Friday evening. Details are yet to be finalised, but the team will be notified of arrangements in due course.
