U14 Championship Win

posted 12 May 2013, 10:44 by Shaun-Marty Lawless
Following their impressive start to the league it was Championship time for the Ballyhegan U14
boys and they made the short trip over to Collegeland to play Naomh Eoin in the first round of
the U14 Championship.
Having defeated Naomh Eoin the previous week in the league it was important for the players
to concentrate on the game in hand. Played on an excellent pitch it was the home team who
settled first and got the first score of the game. Following a number of missed chances the
Davitts soon settled and dominated the rest of the half and with great teamwork took some well
taken scores. With their defence on top, backed up by the excellent Ryan McCann in goals,
Ballyhegan continued to push forward at every opportunity and finished the half 3-06 to 0-03
For the second half the players knew that they had to keep creating chances. By always playing
simple football and passing to the player in a better position they continued to keep putting
scores on the scoreboard. Credit to Naomh Eoin they kept the pressure on Ballyhegan to the
end and but for a number of missed chances it would have been a much closer result. Final
score Ballyhegan 4-12, Naomh Eoin 0-07. Once again an all round team effort with all
players playing their part. Many thanks to Naomh Eoin for another sporting game and we wish
them well for the rest of the season.
Ballyhegan Team: Ryan McCann, Stefan Mackey, Paul McQuade (0-1), Rory McLernon, Oisin
Hamill, Jack Gallagher, Naoise O’Hagan, Evin Crummie (0-1), Conor Fearon (1-04), James
McCann (0-2), James Lee (2-2), Sean Donaghy, Kevin McCann , James McCormack, Jamie
McKenna (0-1), Conor Hughes, Jack Hughes (1-1).
