On Wednesday 10th August 2016 our U-16 boys played St.Pats in the final round of the Co.league. The game was played in Keel on a beautiful sunny evening.Our captain on the evening was Dean Ladden.Dean never misses a training session and leading the team out was a reward for his dedication and positive attitude. St.Pats got the first point of the game and Keel/Listry responded with a point from Barry Keane. Unfortunately Barry picked up an ankle injury when scoring the point and had to come off.St.Pats got the next 2 points before Seán Foley O’Brien responded with a point from play. Then Gearóid Murphy our centre back picked up ankle injury and was also forced to retire early from the game. St.Pats dominated in the air and they started to turn a lot of possession into scores. They scored 2-1 from play and a point from a free before we replied with a free from Cian Flynn.Barry Keane returned to play and kicked a point and Darragh O’Dowd kicked another off his left foot. St.Pats finished with a goal and the half time score was St.Pats 3-5 Keel/Listry 0-5. A disappointing half for our boys,but,St.Pats played the better football and deserved to be ahead at half time .
We were down at half time and knew we would have to work a lot harder in the second half. St.Pats started the second half with a point from play another point from a free. Our boys responded with 2 points from Barry. St.Pats still had a 9 point cushion and again replied with another point. The game was now being played at a high tempo and Gary Murphy at centre back was starting to come into the game. We had a good spell and kicked 2-2 and reduced the gap to 2 points. The goals coming from Barry and Cian Flynn and the points from Sean Foley and Barry Keane. A few errors from our boys left St.Pats in for a goal and a point and the gap opened up again. The boys never gave up and Keel/Listry responded with 2 more points. A good St.Pats team had weathered the storm and finished the game with a goal and a point. Hard luck to our boys who tried their best in the second half.The better team won on the night and we look forward to meeting again next week in the semi-final.
