The Kilpeacon football team narrowly lost out on the honours in this U14 Division 2 County Final coming up short against a strong Ahane team on Saturday 18th October.
The conditions on the day were not good for the game of football with a gale force wind blowing the length of the field. Both teams were affected by this wind and while Kilpeacon went into a nice lead after playing with the wind in the first half.
Unfortunately a couple of wasted chances were what proved costly in the end as Ahane took advantage of an even stronger wind in the second half , clawed back the deficit and put away the crucial scores when required to prevail in the end.
We can take nothing away from the heart and determination shown by every single player on the Kilpeacon team who left everything out on the field and while there was heartache and upset at the end , this is by no means the last we will see of this fine group of players with hopefully many more big days to come.
Many thanks to the big support on the day from parents , relatives and club members who turned out to support the team .
Also a massive thanks to all the coaches . Underage GAA in the Kilpeacon and Crecora Manister GAA clubs is alive and kicking and showing great promise for the future.
Congrats to Ahane on their victory .
U13 football played Monaleen last Tuesday night 14th October and earned a result against a strong Monaleen team. There were great displays throughout the team in very dark conditions which both teams had to contend with.
On the night a draw was probably the fairest result although Kilpeacon had the winning of the game but with a lot of players tired after a tough weekend of sport , the draw was well deserved.
There is one more game for the U13s who will play Murroe this coming Thursday evening 23rd October in Murroe so hopefully we can end the season on a winning note.
