Sligo Under 11-A-Side Final



On the Thursday the 14th in Keash the 11 a-side Final
took place at 6.30pm.

The two teams involved were Geevagh and St Marys who had met on
two occassions during the year and it was always going to be a close
game. Considering the weather up until the 14th had been consistently
raining it turned out to be a glorious evening for the final.

As the referee Dermot Walsh threw in the ball it was Geevagh who
were the first to put a score on the board in the first minute,
but that was quickly followed by St Marys seconds later. Then Geevagh
managed to blast a goal into Marys net in the 2nd minute, again
St Marys levelled in the 3rd minute by putting the ball into the
back of Geevaghs net. This was how the game went, score for score,
for the first 13mins, until St Marys pulled off some fine goals.
Geevagh continued to put points on the board, but by half time St
Marys were leading by 5-3 to Geevagh 1-5.

As the second half started it was St Marys who got the first score
but within seconds Geevagh matched that score. However Geevagh managed
to gain the upper hand for the next 16mins with some superb scores
from their forward line. The game entered the final ten minutes
with Geevagh 1 point ahead. This period of the game was very tense
for both sides and the spectators on the sideline not to mention
the managers. But St Marys fought back at this time and played with
great team effort to eventually win the match. The Final score was
9-6 to 6-6 to St Marys. History was made on this day for St. Mary’s
as this was their first title at underage level and the clebrated
as if they had won an All Ireland!!!
