The weather had been bad all week, but the Ladies were lucky and after a frosty start to the day there was some sunshine and most importantly no sign of rain. The ground was a bit soft but in great condition and there was a slight breeze across the field. Conditions as good as you will get this time of the year. Always a good tussle between Clane and Suncroft and when the teams met in the first round of the Championship Suncroft came out in front by only a few points. A competitive game was anticipated.
Bill Brophy got proceedings underway a few minutes late at 11:50 and Clane were quick onto the break and up the field for the first attack. Solid defending and a shot under pressure went wide. Suncroft worked the ball up the pitch and got their first wide of the day. Both sets of defence are strong and it was going to be a good test for all the forwards. In the third minute Aislinn Dooley go...
Minor lads in hard luck against Athgarvan in the in the D Championship semifinal.
Always close games between these two teams. Suncroft started strong and were leading by a couple of points, playing into the breeze, at half time.
Athgarvan got in for goals early in the second half and had built an impressive seven point lead going into the last ten minutes. Suncrofts lads got back into the game and were only behind by two going into the last few minutes.
Athgarvan’s keeper pulled off a great save to keep them ahead.
Athgarvan got the final score of the game to win, what was a very entertaining game, by three.
Athgarvan 5:05(20) Suncroft 3:08(17).
Kildare U16 A Championship Final, A Step Too Far, This Time, For Battling Croft Team
Suncroft V Clane
15 September 2019. Throw in 11:45am.
Over the last couple of years there had been little between these two teams and they are always good games. They met in November 2018 in the U15 championship and Suncroft won by a couple of points, they met in the league in April this year and Clane came out well on top of a depleted Suncroft panel, and they met earlier in the Championship and Suncroft came out on top by a point.
The Croft’s panel is not the biggest but any time Suncroft met Clane with near a full panel of players there was no more than a point or two in it. Unfortunately, the Naas semi-final game had taken a high injury toll on Suncroft's small panel and they were down their goalkeeper Tadgh Delaney, full back John Collins and corner back Leo Brannock after that game and Cian Mahar, another corner back, was just back to training after an injury. Against a very strong Clan...
