Whitescross 4-6, Shamrocks 2-10
At the end of a well disciplined, physical encounter, with a much older minor team from Whitescross, our young charges can once again hold their heads high, even though in defeat. In a match where the final score would initially lead you to think it was one sided, those present will tell you otherwise. A heroic effort by all involved from start to finish, where in the end superior fitness levels won out.
The wet and heavy ground played tricks with the bouncing (or not) ball and turning was difficult, but that was true for both teams. If any benefit was gained by the home team winning the toss it was with the wind in the second half. But! No excuses here the team put in a mighty effort and though “no cigars” this week, this observer was happy to tell all of the team to walk off the pitch knowing they had done themselves, their jersey, their club and community proud.
A thank you also to those who volunteered to drive the team to the match without your help we are in trouble.
