Barna Recycling U13’s – St Josephs U13s played two games during the past week. First up was Dromahaire in Aughavas on Tuesday evening. Our lads were very slow to get going in the first half and went in at halftime three points down. As the second half went on they raised their game considerably and ended up winning on a scoreline of 6-11 to 4-04. The final scoreline flattered our lads a little as it was only in the last seven or eight minutes that they pulled clear of a determined Dromahaire team. This win meant that if they could win the last regular league game that they would qualify for the league semi-final. Leitrim Gaels were our opponents in the final round game in Leitrim Village on Good Friday evening. This was a tightly fought encounter between two evenly matched sides. Leitrim Gaels had wind advantage in the first half and the St Josephs lads started the game very well but were unable to turn possession into scores and conceded a few scores just before the break to leave the halftime score Leitrim Gaels 1-3  St Joseph’s 0-2. A slow start to the second half saw Leitrim Gaels extend their lead before St Joseph’s exploded back into the game with a flurry of well-taken scores which saw our lads go in front for the first time. It was breathless, end to end football for the remainder of the game and by the time the referee blew the final whistle, Leitrim Gaels were victors by the minimum margin on a final scoreline of Leitrim Gaels 4-5 St Josephs 1-13. We now await results of other games to see if we may have done enough to reach the semi-finals. Congratulations to both teams on producing a thrilling game of football for the spectators present.

St Joseph’s squad for both games was Fionnan Harte, Ben Harte, Cian Nolan, Padraig Maguire, Jack Mc Intyre, Eanna Mc Namara, Kevin Doherty, Kalum Mc Loughlin, Liam Mc Intyre, Harry Wilson, Darren Shortt, Matthew Mc Cabe, Kian Mc Hugh, Joey Mc Brien, Gary Mitchell, Tommy Kearney, Conor Downes, Gavin Gallogly, Conor Shortt.
