Suncroft pulled off another one point win against the odds on Thursday night in Eadestown.

Suncroft were on top and a high ball in by Owen Foy deceived the Eadestown goalie to leave score at 1-2 0-0. Eadestown came into the match and added on 2 points to leave score 1-2 0-2 at half time. Suncroft came under pressure after half time as Eadestown, with centre forward Owen Cunniffe having a great game, scored 5 unanswered points. Suncroft defence did very well not to concede a goal during this period. Suncroft got the ball up into Eadestown square and centre half Conor Smith blasted the ball into Eadestown net to give Suncroft a goal. Eadestown replied with a point to draw the game. With time running out Suncroft get a free but it went wide. Suncroft kept the pressure on and got a 45. Stephen Crowley steps and knocks the ball over the bar to give Suncroft a one point win. There was a great cheer when the referee confirmed the score. Best for Suncroft was Richie Collins, Aaron Dunne, Aaron O’Keefe O’Reilly, Conor Smith , Adam Stack, Stephen Crowley, Owen Foy and David Sutton. Best for Eadestown was Patrick O'Brien, Padraig Touhey Evan Mc Gee, Owen Cunniffe and Owen Doyle.

Congratulations to Suncroft U10a’s who were crowned U10 Division 1 champions last week finishing joint top of the league. They won 6 of their 7 matches during the league with their only loss being an unlucky 1 point defeat to Moorefield. The league started with a comfortable win over Castledermot with David Sutton scoring an impressive 7-4 on the day. It finished with a must win match against unbeaten Eadestown, which Suncroft duly won by 1 point thanks to a superb injury time winner by Stephen Crowley. Suncroft performed brilliantly throughout the league putting some very high standard displays. Who will ever forget the 12 point comeback against Rathangan to secure a 1 point win or the 2 very late goals against Kilcullen to secure a 2 point win. The Mentors would like to thank all who helped out during the campaign, in particular the players themselves, all the parents, skills trainer Eamon O’Modhrain, John Knight and John Browne.
Under 12's are still waiting on a date for their shield semi-final.
Under 16's start championship later on this month.
