U-16 Thriller

The U-16 Championship, Eleven-a-Side game Annaduff v Bornacoola, played at Dromod, on Saturday, October 12 was a thriller. The final score was a draw, Annaduff 3-5, Bornacoola 2-8. Both sets of players are to be congratulated on serving up a magnificent and clean contest. The last time these two met was last spring. Bornacoola had a big win then.

Per Sean Quigley, Annaduff were 1-1 up after 3 minutes. From then until the 21st minute, Bor scored an unanswered 1-7. Colm Murray got a point to leave it 1-7 to 1-2 at the break. On the resumption, Colm scored another point but Bor replied with a similar minor. Annaduff were now on the attack and a Quigley penalty goal was followed by a Conor Cronin point, from a free, and a cracking goal from youthful Michael Cox. The Duffs were two ahead. In the last minute, it looked “all over”as Bor struck back with a well-taken goal. In the last moment of extra time, Colm Murray kept his nerve and floated over a great free to level it up.

Such are the rules that it is almost certain that these two teams will be meeting again soon. Depending on results,they may meet in a play-off or in the Final proper.
