U14 Boys Spring League Div 1
Our U14s had a busy week with 2 Div 1 games.

On Tue we had a home game V Roscommon Gaels and were comprehensively beaten by a very strong  Gaels team. 

On Sat morning we played Clan and a much improved performance just fell short of achieving a victory. 

Clann na nGael   4-03       St. Brigid’s 1-07


St Brigid’s U14’s travelled to Johnstown to play an entertaining tight encounter against Clann na nGael.

The home team settled into the game better and scored 1-02 without reply in the opening minutes. St Brigid’s opened their account with Brendan Murphy showing well in the full forward position to claim the ball before being fouled, Bobby Nugent slotted over the resulting free. St. Brigid’s added a second point with Murphy again fouled after good approach play from Bobby Nugent, this time Nugent elected to take the free quickly to Eoin Reid who slotted over from close range.  St. Brigid’s were now in the groove and scored a fantastic team score with David Dolan typically tenacious in winning the ball back for this team, Bryan Armstrong, Alex O’Donohue and Bobby Nugent combined before releasing Eanna McDonnell who scored to make the score 1-02 to 0-03 with twenty minutes played. The home team responded with a goal after St. Brigid’s found themselves outnumbered at the back. St. Brigid’s though rallied and finished the first half scoring with another pointed free from Bobby Nugent after some good work from Sol Trundle to leave the half time score 2-02 to 0-04 to the home team.

St. Brigid’s were determined to cut the deficit early in the second half and were unlucky not to score a goal when Bobby Nugent rattled the crossbar from a quickly taken freekick after Luke Whelan was fouled. St. Brigid’s continued on the front foot with the impressive Bryan Armstrong getting out in front of his man before passing to Alex O’Donohue who scored an excellent point. The momentum was now with St. Brigid’s with Paddy Higgins driving his team forward at every opportunity and indeed they produced a bit of magic with Sol Trundle and Bobby Nugent combining to release Alex O’Donohue who levelled the game at 2-02 to 1-05, scoring a powerful goal after a surging run through the Clann na nGael defence. St. Brigid’s then took the lead with just over ten minutes remaining when O’Donohue added another point. The home team responded to re-take the lead scoring their third goal. St. Brigid’s then reduced the deficit to the bare minimum after James Dillion punched the ball over the bar from a Bobby Nugent free kick. Clann however responded with a fine point from distance to stretch the lead again to two points. With minutes remaining St. Brigid’s were unlucky not to re-take the lead when BillyRay Dolan passed inside to O’Donohue’s whose goal bound shot was cleared off the line. Clann na nGael scored with the last kick of the game to finally end the St Brigid’s challenge in an enthralling end to end game.

In the end the concession of four goals proved costly for St. Brigid’s however it was a good team performance, best on the day for St. Brigid’s were David Dolan, Daniel Skene, Paddy Higgins, Bryan Armstrong, Bobby Nugent and Alex O’Donohue with U13 players Luke Sylvester and Sean Minnock also producing brilliant performances in defence.
