Under 12s - Blitz results 29th/30th April 2011

Eire Og/St Agnes Under 12’s had a busy weekend starting with a Blitz on Friday 29th April at O’Donnells hosted by the London club Tomais Mc Curtains. The lads performed admirably in the Group stages, notably against St. Galls (who they beat 1-2 to 0-1), before going down in the semi-finals of the Shield by a single point to eventual winners Sarsfields.

There was no rest for the youngsters as Eire Og hosted their own Under 12s Blitz at Woodlands the next morning.  Despite narrowly losing the opening match to St. Galls (2-1 to 1-6), the lads went on to beat St Brigids by 2 points (3-4 to 2-5) and record a 25 point (Go-games) win over St Malachy’s (4-14 to 0-7).

All in all, this was a successful weekend for the young Ogs/Aggies who overcame tiredness and the warm conditions to put in some fine performances against some of the top sides in Antrim.  Well done lads!

Eire Og/St Agnes 3-4 Michael Davitts 1-5

South Antrim Under 12s Football League Division 2

Eire Og/St. Agnes (combined) began their Under 12s league campaign with a visit to Michael Davitts at Grosvenor and emerged with a hard-fought victory against well-drilled opponents. The young Ogs/Aggies showed signs of rustiness in the first half and found it hard to progress past the half forward line as Davitts easily snuffed out the supply of ball to the Ogs/Aggies forwards. Indeed by half-time Ogs/Aggies had only registered one score – a goal bundled in from Patrick, following a series of defensive blocks from Davitts. By the end of the half, Davitts had racked up a score of 1-3, leaving the visitors a mountain to climb in the second-half. (Half-time Davitts 1-3 Ogs/Aggies 1-0).

A half-time tactical talk and a number of early substitutions worked wonders for the Ogs/Aggies in the second period. A good supply of ball from the backs into the half-forward line began to pay dividends. A quick point from Paddy Mulgrew and a net-buster from Mark Hamill lifted the team who were now beginning to find their rhythm. More points followed from John (Aggies) and Mark Hamill before Davitts were able to put 2 more scores of their own on the board. Any signs of a Davitts revival were crushed when Mark Hamill finished off a fine second half display with another point before Gavin Donnelly killed the game off with a well-taken goal.

This was a hard-fought victory for Ogs/Aggies who utilised their full squad to good effect and secured the league points with a dominant second-half display. They can now look with confidence to their next game against St Teresa’s at Woodlands on the 29th April (Kick-off 6.30pm).
