Listry U-12s played Kilgarvan at 2pm and this was also a cracking game.Listry were unbeaten in the run up to this game with victories over Lispole, Scartaglen and Cordal.The first half was played at a fast pace with both teams scoring great goals and kicking some great points. Kilgarvan scored 5.3 in the first half to Listry’s 3.6. Kilgarvan were ahead at half-time by 3 points after playing against the wind.However, Listry as they have done in all their games scored more in the second half than in the first even if it was against the wind.Listry scored 6- 4 to Kilgarvan’s 2-1 to leave a final score Listry 9-10 Kilgarvan 7-4,a 12 point win for Listry and a 15 point turn-around.This was a great performance from Listry and credit must go to coaches Jeremy Wrenn and Mike Dwyer who have this team moving nicely and always make sure all the panel is used.Next game is the final game in phase one of the league and it’s a top of the table clash with Brosna.The game is fixed for Listry at 7pm and let’s hope the whole parish will come out and support our great team.
