Manor Farm U15 Division 2 Shield Final
Crenartin 8-12 to Truagh 6-16
When our National game is played in the spirit it was intended to, it is a beauty to watch… when two teams play to win.. attack at every possible moment.. put everything on the line.. respect each other but give each other nothing… play honest open direct football we get to experience something special..
This was for all to see on Thursday last when Gael Truagh and Cremartin Shamrocks met in the Manor Farm u15 Div2 Final in Oram. Both teams need to be congratulated for this epic and exhausting battle.
With the aid of the wind Cremartin got off to a great start with registering 1.4 without reply but 2 goals from each side and some fantastic long range scores from both sides saw Cremartin take a half time lead of 3-8 to 2-3. Second half continued with free flowing football, superb tackling, turn overs and even more exciting football. Truagh had the wind the 2nd half and made use of it early on by reducing the match to the minimum. This game had all and both sides matched each other score for score and as we entered final seconds of the match Truagh conjured the equaliser after Cremartin failed to take a few chances to kill off the game… extra time beckoned as at final whistle of this battle they could not be separated with the score at Cremartin 5-11 Truagh 4-14
