Castletroy College 8 – 9
John the Baptist Community School Hospital 5 – 3
The 1st Year Schools’ County Football final, played in Claughan, on 10th February gave Castletroy the opportunity to earn the rewards for a long year’s preparation.
After a few nervous opening minutes Castletroy settled down to the task in hand and put together some good moves to create good scoring opportunities and were domi
nant throughout the field. All of the forwards played well getting on the scoreboard with a combined score of 5 – 5.
Ronan Murphy led the attack and was well supported by both wing forwards and Andy Cosgrave at full forward. Centre field pairing of Barry Nash and Ed Doyle worked tirelessly scoring 1 – 4 and were part of all the attacks. The backs were impressive as a unit and worked hard in defence of their lines.
