Under 17s – Double Double success last weekend!

Well done and a massive congratulations to our U17 Division 1 team and management for the superb Minor Championship cup win, against Carrickmacross in the brilliant U17 Division 1 Championship final in Cremartin on Saturday last by 1-21 to 1-10, to complete the league and championship cup double. The minor Blues put in a superb performance against a strong Carrickmacross team, in a repeat of the league cup final in August and held on against a spirited comeback by the Emmets in the early second half, to secure the minor county championship for the Blues for the first time since 2008.

The Blues started strongly and within the first minute scored their first point with a fine effort by Sean Óg McElwain. After 15 minutes the Blues led by 0-4 to 0-1 in a tense tight game with superb points by Nicky Sherlock, Tommy Mallen, and Sean Óg McElwain, before Carrickmacross levelled the game with a goal on 17 minutes. With the momentum on their side Carrickmacross took the lead with a point, but the Blues dug deep to withstand the pressure with another fine point by Sean Óg McElwain, which was quickly followed by a superb induvial effort point by Sahil Arya. With less than 10 minutes of the first half remaining, Carrickmacross equalised, but the Blues took advantage in the game in the final 6 minutes of the first half with superb possession built up a 6 point lead going into half time after a superb point from range from Tommy Mallen, a fine point by Nicky Sherlock, another great point by Tommy Mallen, and then in injury time Tommy Mallen scored a brilliant goal with a clinical finish making the half time score Scotstown 1-9 Carrickmacross 1-3. Carrickmacross started the second half strongly and despite playing against the wind made a spirited comeback and reduced the margin to just a kick of a ball between the sides after 10 minutes with a score of 1-11 to 1-8, after a superb 45 from Finlay Foy and a further fine point by Tommy Mallen. Nicky Sherlock scored a superb individual point to restore the Blues 4-point advantage, but Carrickmacross quickly equalised making the score. Then again, Max Maguire’s excellent point from range was cancelled out by Carrickmacross making the score 1-13 to 1-10 after 15 minutes. Going into the final quarter the blues found an extra gear and took control of the game. Sean Óg McElwain scored 3 well placed points (2 from frees) in a row, and Max Maguire scored another superb point giving Scotstown a 7-point advantage with 10 minutes remaining. Sean Óg McElwain added 2 further fine points to his tally, before Tommy Mallen scored another brilliant point, with just over 5 minutes of normal time remaining. The Blues defended well against strong Carrick pressure at the end and in injury time Darcy Foy secured the win with a fine point, making the final score Scotstown 1-21 Carrickmacross 1-10. Well done to the team and management and hard luck and commiserations to Carrickmacross Emmets. Congratulations to Nicky Sherlock who won man of the match. Many thanks to Cremartin Shamrocks for superbly hosting the final. Well done and thanks to Leah McDonald for the beautiful rendition of Amhrán na bhFiann.

Massive Congratulations and well done to our U17 Division 3 team and management in their epic final win 0-8 to 0-7 against Monaghan Harps in dreadful weather conditions in the U17 Division 3B Championship final on Sunday last in Sean McDermotts. This secured a championship and league cup double and overall an historic and incredible minors double double. Thanks to Gary McQuaid for the following match report of the game.

Scotstown U17B team produced a great second half come-back against Monaghan Harps to win the Division 3B championship final at Sean Mc Dermotts on Sunday last and complete a league and championship double. Conditions were difficult with heavy rain and a strong wind that made for slippy playing conditions. The Harps played with the wind in the first half and led by 7 points to 1 at half time and were unlucky to lose one of their players with a head injury. Scotstown had to play the entire second half with 14 men and scored two quick points to reduce the margin to four but had to wait another 15 minutes before their next score. Scotstown almost scored a goal after 20 minutes of the half when a long-range shot dropped short and hit the cross bar but did manage to draw level at 7 points each with two minutes left. The winning score came shortly afterwards from a 21m free, but Scotstown had to defend strongly as the Harps tried to get an equaliser but held out for a one-point win.

Well done to both teams for their efforts in tough conditions and congratulations to the Scotstown team and management. Well done to our scorers, Darcy Foy (0-5), Aaron McQuaid (0-2) and Max Maguire (0-1). Hard luck and commiserations to Monaghan Harps. Many thanks to Sean McDermotts for their superb and excellent hosting of the final, particularly in such inclement weather.

Scotstown Team and Scorers: Jimmy McKenna, Adrian Larmer, Darragh McMeel, Dylan McCrudden, Seamie McKenna, Shea Murray, Enda Brady, Bobby Boylan, Aaron McKeon, Aaron McQuaid (0-2), Gareth Rhatigan, Jason Boylan, James Brady, Bryan Caulfield, Finn Sherlock, Eanna McCarey, Eric Bennett, Andrew Gallagher, Dylan McGuirk, Cathal McElwain, Darcy Foy (0-5), Mark McCaffrey, Conall Gallagher, Max Maguire (0-1).
