Next Saturday 13th November sees the final competition in the Coiste na nÓg calendar for the 2010 season. Drumkerrin and Drumreilly will take to the field in the U16 15aside competition, Drumkerrin took the direct route to the final winning all of their 4 games and topping the table on 8 points but Drumreilly took the scenic route ending up tied with Mohill and Glencar-Manor on 4 points and forcing a 3 way playoff to decide who would meet Drumkerrin in the final. Mohill and Glencar-Manor were first to play with Glencar-Manor winning that one and meeting Drumreilly last Saturday for the semi-final which Drumreilly came out on top with a 5 point victory. When these two teams met in round 1 of the competition played on the 17th of September there was only the bare minimum between them with Drumkerrin coming out on top with a 1 point victory on a scoreline of 3-08 to 1-13, so both teams will have their eye on the silverware. No doubt Drumkerrin will be eager to put back to back titles after winning the under 16 15aside League cup over Allen Gaels earlier this year and Drumreilly will also want to do the double, only a step higher as they won the under 16 13aside title over Mohill, so no doubt the scene should be set for a cracking final. We wish both teams the best of luck on Saturday.
