The U-16's came out on top this evening in Glentiies where they defeated a strong Kilcar side by six points. The game went to extra time after it finished all square in normal time. An early goal in the first few minutes for the Rosses side proved the spring board for success.
Having lost heavily to Kilcar in the second leg last Monday night....they faced them again this evening in a play off in Glenties. Many club supporters came back from Burt to Glenties as the lads set out to put what was a testing week behind. The match was end to end stuff and point for point throughout.....with a minute left Naomh Mhuire led Kilcar by a point. Kilcar however broke up the field and equalised bringing the match into extra time. There was only one team in extra time as our young lads superior fitness and will to win was too much for the young brave Kilcar side. Two goals in each period of extra time....one a scorcher by young Jack Boyle, Belcruit making his debut at only 14.....saw the Naomh Mhuire side knock out last years County finalists. The boys now play Ardara on Tuesday night in the Div Semi-final in Dunkineely with a throw-in time of 7.30.
This was an outstanding victory for Sean Mc Fadden and Gary Boyle's young side. These lads have put in hours of indoor work in the Aislann during the winter as well as great outdoor work and by beating Kilcar in a Div 1 Championship match...they have put down a huge statement of where hard work gets you.
Well done lads and Good luck on Tuesday evening.
