County U21 Football Championship Quarter-Final
Fr. Caseys Vs Adare, Saturday December 9th, time and venue to be confirmed
County U21 Football Championship
Fr. Caseys 2-12 Mungret 1-07
Fr. Caseys U21 Footballers booked their place in the county quarter final last Friday night with an impressive 2-12 victory over Mungret in Mick Neville Park. Having narrowly lost their opening two group games, Fr. Caseys knew anything but a victory would end their campaign. Mungret entered the game with a similar prospect so a tense evening was in store. Fr. Caseys brought their kicking boots on the night and in a cold Mick Neville Park they raced into a commanding 1-09 to 0-04 half time lead, Pa O'Connor getting the vital goal. With an eight point advantage the half time message was to protect their lead and that is exactly what they did, matching Mungret score for score in the second period, each adding 1-03 to the scoreboard to leave the full time score Fr. Caseys 2-12, Mungret 1-07. Next up is a meeting with Adare in the county quarter finals this coming weekend. Having captured the Senior county title in October, Adare will be looking for a double of county honours but hopefully Fr. Caseys can rise to the challenge and deliver. We wish the very best of luck to the team and management in this knockout encounter.
