Clann Notes - 14/9/22
This was an enthralling game with end-to-end football and there's no doubt that the result could have gone either way!
Padraig Pearses had the better first half and were 6 points up at half time on a score line 3-06 (15) to 6-03 (21) both teams scoring 9 times each. Much to the delight of the large Clann na nGael support our girls shook off their nerves and put in a superb second half team performance, with Clann Girls scoring 2-04 while collectively curtailing Pearses to only 3 points in the second half...nobody was going home early.
This was an enthralling game with very positive and creative football played throughout, our girls secured their victory over Padraig Pearses by a single point, 5-10 (25) to 6-06 (24).
Well done to all our Clann na nGael girls on a superb team performance and in bringing home to Johnstown our first U.14 Div. 1 title since 2016.
