Fé 14 – Féile na bPeil
Youghal hosted three football teams in the Féile B Group 4 section on Saturday 14th March. The Youghal lads won all three games comfortably with high winning margins. We progressed to the semi-final in Passage the following day where our opponents were Ballinascarthy. They topped their group unbeaten also. From the throw-in we knew we were in a battle - the Ballinascarthy midfield powered through our defence to notch up their first goal. This was repeated shortly after when their star forward slotted home and two further points left us with a tough job ahead. However our lads rallied and took control for the reminder and were unlucky not to reduce the deficit with a missed penalty and great saves by their keeper. We trailed 2-2 to 0-2 at the break. The second half began where the first ended with every ball being hotly contested. Once again, with Youghal having the majority of possession, we couldn't translate it into scores. The team showed that they are well capable of playing at this high intensity and the future bodes well for our lads.
