Feile Semi-final

3/12/2016Posted by Admin


The u14 footballers lost by the bare minimum after extra time in their feile match vs Gort Na Mona today. Indecision from a late free and a questionable refereeing decision prevented the ogs from sealing victory in normal time. The whole team performed admirably in heavy conditions with Brendan Murray-Lopez and Andrew McLean dominating around the middle of the park. Sean Murray-Lopez, Connla McCarthy and Mattie Morgan showed well up front against a well organised Gort side. Diarmuid Molloy and Matthew Cummings kept Gort scoreless for long periods with some resolute defending. Special mention to u12s, Declan and Conall McGibbon, who made their u14 debut today. Man of the match for the ogs was Brendan Murray Lopez who carried the ball superbly under intense pressure.

Final score Eire Og 0-4 Gort Na Mona 0-5

All in all the Ogs, shorn of several key players, were incredibly unlucky and can be proud of their efforts. The talent is undoubtedly there and if the commitment levels are upped the Ogs can be a match for anybody this season.
