Under 12s Pick Up Important Win In Donabate
St. Pats (Donabate) 2-5
Erin Go Bragh 4-8
The Under 12 footballers travelled to Donabate on Fridat night to take on St Pats in their penultimate football league game. The team needed a win to take the fight for second place to the final league game of year (on 3rd October), and they got off to a flying start with 2 quick goals inside the first 3 minutes. St Pats clawed their way back into the game with a goal and a point before EGB struck again with a third goal. Rather than take their points EGB continued to look for goals but could not find the net and it almost backfired as St Pats countered on 3 occasions and picked off 3 points without reply to leave just 2 points in the game approaching half time. But it was the kick EGB needed and they fired over 4 points before the half time whistle to lead 3-4 to 1-4 at the break.
The visitors lifted their game in the second half and defended with eveything they had, countering St Pats at speed. They outscored St Pats 1-4 to 1-1 in the second period leaving a final score of 4-8 to 2-5.
Team: A Carroll, L McEvoy, L Byrne, D Daly, C King, M Madigan, C Ford, O O'Hara, S Vickers, J Flood, J Padden, G Campion, M Nitoi, C Pownall, E Doherty, J Humphreys.
