A chilly January 18th night in the WIT arena, Carriganore, proved fruitful for an ambitious and enthusiastic Under 14 St Augustine’s football team.

The Team prepared well in damp conditions with a cold wind for a seven thirty throw in. The Friary were under no illusions that this was going to be an easy game by any means, having already faced St. Declan’sKilmacthomas, earlier in the school yearand winning by a narrow margin on that occasion. The team prepared well for 20 minutes before the match ensuring they had optimum focus going into the game.

There was no waiting around from the throw in with the first score going to St. Declan’s with a well taken point. The Frairy were quick to respond by moving the ball at pace up the pitch with quick hand and kick passing. The first Friary score was a goal by corner forward, Gavin Christopher, who capitalised on a clear cut goal chance. St. Declan’s responded well with another well taken pointThe first 20 minutes saw both teams trading points with Rory Fennell, Seanie Callaghan, and Charlie Treen contributing points for the Friary.

Just before half time St. Declan’s got a goal which really pulled the game close between the teams. The Frairy held on to take a one point lead of 1 - 06 to 1 - 05 at the interval

From the throw in for the second half it was clear that St. Declan’s meant business. Their intent was to win as they claimed two quick goals and a point early in the second half. Suddenly the Frairy trailed by 6 points. The Friary’s excellent defence stood up again and kept St. Declan’s scoreless for the remainder of the game with Edmund SprattBrayden Dee Carterand RoryTyrrelltaking heavy knocks to keep out a strong St. Declan’s team. The exceptionally strong defensive input from the entire full back and centre back lineas well as the energetic midfield duo of Brayden and Marc, built up confidence again for The Friary in the last 10 minutes. 

The Friary launched a quick attack with the Fennel twins linking up well. The pressure paid off with CharlieTreen getting a fantastic goal into the top cornerTwo substitutions by the Frairy with John Gleeson and Leon Cummins coming on increased the tempo again for the team. The adrenaline had kicked in and chants of ‘come on Friary’ coming from the stand really boosted the teamAnother surging attack found Marc Mahony getting a great goal, which really capped a fantastic display from midfield by him. This goal drew the teams level. The final and winning score was from the Friary’s Rory Fennell with a superb point from a very tight angle. St. Declan’s tried to respond but some great defensive marking and blocking kept them at bay. The final whistle went and St. Augustine’s had won by a score line of 3 – 07 to 3 - 06. The Friary put in an exceptional display and it paid off. The team from 1 to 27 capped a hard season with a well deserved victory. Even those who did not play on the night have contributed massively to this success in matches leading up to this. This is a strong and a great team effort. We will be seeing much more of these fine young footballers. Three cheers for team mentors, Mr William Kelly and Mr Kieran O'Sullivan.
