Mallon’s Sausages U17 Division 2 Cup Final
St Patrick’s 3-12 Toome 0-14
Mother Nature had her way on Tuesday evening prior to throw-in for the Mallon’s Sausages U17 Division 2 Finals in Aughnamullen and Doohamlet as a deluge of rain plus thunder and lightening of almost epic proportions hit the region.
Following a wet warm up in Doohamlet the rain clouds cleared somewhat and the action began!
3 of Tuesday’s players Dara McCann, Conor Mc Kernan and Jason Irwin had all togged out for Monaghan U17s on Sunday and were now proudly representing their clubs St Patrick’s and Toome.
Toome opened strong with a very energetic display as on form Monaghan U17 and Toome captain Jason Irwin tapped over 0-5 before St. Patrick’s eventually got on the scoreboard in the 17th minute. Within a dramatic 2 minute spell St Patrick’s had levelled matters with a point each from Dara McCann and Aodhan Brennan along with a Joseph Bardsley goal the sides were all square on Toome 0-5 St Pat’s 1-02.. In all the sides were level three times before the interval with Pat’s Aodhan Brennan and Thomas Keenan scoring the equalisers at one end while at the other end Jason Irwin added 3 more points to his personal tally of 0-8 pushing his side ahead by a point on the halftime whistle. Jason, accurate from all positions was a pleasure to watch putting on a one man show as Toome’s only scorer in the first half.
