St. Pats win South U21 final

St. Pats 5-13 Fr. Sheehys 2-12

St. Pats have collected their first piece of silver ware for 2012, after an entertaining South C Final in Monroe yesterday. It was a free flowing game as the scoreline suggests.

Sheehys had the first score of the game playing against the wind. They held possession for the early stages and put pressure on the Pats defense. Eventually our lads got moving and Nicky Kearney picked off 3 points from play to give us the lead. Then the goals came, two from Tony O’Brien and one very well taken goal from B Gleeson. Sheehys got two goals back and both teams traded points. Pats went in at the break 6 points to the good.

Pats started well in the second half, kicking some fine scores. Mark Slattery goaled early and Pats pushed their lead out to 10 points. Unfortunately Damien Barry, who was playing well, picked up a second yellow so Pats were down to 12(as this is a 13 a side championship). Sheehys fought back but Pats kept tagging on the odd score to hold out comfortable winners.

Well done to the lads on a good win.

Team; M.O’Halloran, D. Riordan, E.Needham, JP Fitxgerald, W.O’Brien, R.Maher, D.Barry, J.Moloney, M.Mullaly, N.Kearney, M.Slattery, T.O’Brien, B.Gleeson, Subs; M.Fitzgerald, K.O’Brien, A.Maher, T.Hayes
