ST BRIGIDS MINOR COMMITTEE NOTES WEEK ENDING AUGUST 10th 2014
Minors: The RBK sponsored minors had a comprehensive win against Pádraig Pearses in
Kiltoom on Sunday last in round 2 of the Division 1 championship. Final score: St Brigid’s 4-
10, Padraig Pearses 0-6. Their next championship game is away to Clann na Gael this Thursday
evening, August 14th at 7pm.
U-14s: Pride of place this week goes to the Homewatch sponsored Division 1 & 4 U-14 teams
who lit up Oran in the Division 1 and 4 finals last Saturday. The Division 4 team captured the
championship title while the Division 1 side put in a heroic performance against Clann na nGael
in a pulsating game which couldn’t separate the two sides. They now meet again in an eagerly
Division 4 Final: The Division 4 team set up a very entertaining and exciting day of football with a two goal victory over a gallant St Croans team. Final scoreline: St Brigid’s 6-6. St Croan’s 4-6. Goals from Diarmuid Glynn, Ben O’Carroll and Shane Kelly helped set up a five point cushion at the break but an early goal by Croan’s straight after the
restart set up a very exciting second period. Going into the last quarter, the teams were level following a Croan’s converted penalty. O’Carroll settled the nerves with a superb third goal five minutes later and Diarmuid Glynn’s flick to net late on ensured the title was coming to Kiltoom. Well done to the management, all the players and full panel who were rewarded for their huge effort this year. Division 4 team: Evan Gallagher, Faoilean Kennedy, Sean Trundle, Paddy
O’Boyle, Shane Keenan (0-1), Jack Martin, Diarmuid Glynn (2-0), Ben O’Carroll (3-2, one
free), Shane Kelly (1-2), Cian Daly, Fergus O’Sullivan. Subs used: Brian Monaghan (0-1) for F.O’Sullivan, Brian Nestor for S. Kelly, Luke O'Rourke for B. Monaghan.
Division 1 Final: No-one would argue that the Division 1 game played after the Division 4 final was as good a game
at this level that has been seen for many years as these two rivals squared up to each other for the third time in the championship. The skill level was very high and there was a ferocious intensity to the exchanges. Having won the last two, Clann were favourites but the St Brigid’s team put in their best performance of the year which almost got them over the line for a famous victory. St Brigid’s roared out of the blocks in the first half and with some scintillating football,
raced into a 2-5 to 0-2 lead five minutes from the break, the goals coming from Daniel McDermott and Ruairi Smith. But Clann, with an unanswered 1-3 just before half-time, set up an intriguing second half. The last thirty minutes was enthralling stuff and while Clann tried to turn the screw after levelling the game in the 40th minute, 2-7 apiece, St Brigid’s refused to
yield. A Clann purple patch put them three ahead but the first of Ian O’Rourke’s goals and two Billy McDonnell long-range points in between a Clann score helped put them ahead by one with ten minutes left. Incredibly, Clann responded with a goal three minutes from time but O’Rourke’s second goal moments after looked like the score that could secure victory. However, Clann had the last say with a late equaliser to set up a mouth-watering replay. Hats off to both sides who served up an absolute cracking game and well done to the St Brigid’s team for a wonderful display of football. We look forward to more in the replay! Division 1 team: Liam Martin, Mark Haran, Paul McGrath, Luke Grieslan, Ciaran Quinn, Billy McDonnell (0-2), Pearse Frost, Shane Cunnane, Darragh Murray, Adam Murtagh (0-2), Ian O’Rourke (2-0) , Robbie Dolan, Tom O’Carroll (0-1), Ruairi Smyth (1-4, one free), Daniel McDermott(1-0). Subs. used: Ciaran Sugrue for A. Murtagh, Ruaidhri Fallon for Ruairi Smyth, Gary Daly for D. Murray.
U-12s: The respective leagues resume this weekend so plenty of game time now awaits for ourMillmount sponsored panel of players. Players will be notified of all match details during the week.
U-8s: The O’Rourke fireplaces sponsored U-8s had a good work-out in challenge games against Ballinasloe on Saturday last in Kiltoom.
