U14 Academy versus Clarecastle Match Report
Sixmilebridge 3-07 Clarecastle 1-02
The U14 Academy team played Clarecastle in the 3rd game of their Championship in O’Garney Park Saturday last. The game was played in ideal conditions with only a light breeze blowing towards the school end. The ‘Bridge elected to play with the wind and made full use of it, racing out to a 2-6 to 0-1 lead.
This was in large part thanks to goals from Eamonn Breen and Niall Moloney while Finn Murphy and Breen each chipped in with a couple of points. Breen raised another green flag before Clarecastle struck for goal on the stroke of half-time to leave the score at 3-7 to 1-2 to the hosts.
Clarecastle started the second half the brighter, rattling home a penalty and tacking on another free soon after. Sixmilebridge soon got back on top, striking over 3 straight points, 2 from Calum Phelan. Clarecastle pulled a point back before the ‘Bridge finished with a flurry, with Phelan scoring 2 more points and Don Whitty also hitting the back of the net. This was the Academy teams 3rd win from 3 on a score line of 4-12 to 2-4.
