Youghal under 21 footballers played Kinsale Monday night 21 March in the Glenville tournament.We went into this game missing a few players due to illness and injury. But this allowed the players on the fringes to make their clam for a position on the team. James O'Mahony was the first score followed by a point by Keith Mc Carthy, this score was definitely the score of the match. Keith managed to solo down the left wing than cut in and kick a brilliant score off the outside of his left foot. James managed another two points before half time along with a penalty scored by Keith. Half time score Eochaill 1/4 Kinsale 1/2.
Second half saw Kinsale really come into the game,we were in trouble in a umber of positions but in fairness to everyone they rallied and got back into the game. Conor O Sullivan fielded a great kick out and soled through to get his own score, this was followed by a point by Keith Mc Carthy. Then up came Adrian Curtin from wing back and but a point over, Conor once again broke through for another score. Adrian managed another score, but along came the score of the tournament! High ball came into the full forward line Simon Herlihy broke the ball down and Victor Cahill stuck into the back of the net!
So 16 teams down to 2 and we managed to take the trophy home, we have had a great build up to our championship V Erin Own so hopefully we can beat Erins Own on Saturday.
