Corduff Notes

May 14th, 2012

Under 12 Spring League final: Last Saturday the rain stayed off when we took on Tyholland in the Spring League final in Cloghan. This team has put in great performances all year and on Saturday was no different. Jordan Mc Garrell opened the scoring for Corduff after some help from Jamie King, Dylan Finnegan extended Corduff lead after some good play coming from Mark Keenan and Cian Callan. Tyholland responded with a point before  Dylan Finnegan added 2 points and after a combination of brilliant play from Jarred Wenham, Jamie King slotted over another point leaving the score Corduff 0-05 to 0-01 with 11 minutes gone in the first third. Then Tyholland scored 2 unanswered points before Dearbhla Callan won a free and played a quick ball to Dylan who finished the scoring before the break leaving the score Corduff 0-06 Tyholland 0-04. Corduff again opened the scoring and held the lead thanks to some good defending from Conal Reynolds and a brilliant goal save from James Walsh this helped Corduff extend their lead to 0-05 to 0-08. Tyholland did go and bring the lead back to a point before points from Jamie King and Dylan Finnegan left the score after the second third 0-12 to Tyholland 0-10.  In the Third quarter Linus Pavqlous and Ryan King came on, the sides exchanged scores in the closing stages. Corduff were then presented with their medals by Noel Duffy.
