Tuesday April 19th
Ballyhegan's run of poor luck continued at U14 level, as they went down to neighbours Grange St Colmcille's by a goal on Tuedsay night in Ballyhegan Park.
The young Davitts's started brightly and commanded most of the ball in the 1st half. The back line of James McCann, Conor McGlinchey, Paul McQuade and Liam McGrane, where solid as a rock throughout.
Brilliant performance from Paul McQuade in paticular, showing a lot of early promise. His Brother James McQuade(injured) was in nets and played fantastically, good strong kickouts and some great fielding.
Michael McCann and Eoin C Hughes played midfield, both stuck to there tasks well, two strong lads with plenty of character that will have the ability to push on from this match.
The forward line was Niall and Evin Crummie, James Lee and Joseph McKeever. They kept on the move for the whole match, working well as a unit and where unlucky not to have a few more scores under their belts. James Lee showed a lot of craft linking up well with the midfield. Evin Crummie won a penalty but there was a debate over the distance out that the penalty had to be struck from.
All subs where used with Conor Madden, Emmett Hammill and Conor Hughes coming into the forward line, Phelim McAtarsney, Owen McCaw and Kyle Turbit coming into the backline.
All tried hard once coming on and where eager to get involved, credit to them for coming of the bench in such a competitive game and giving it their best
