U21B Football:

Team:  Paul Carroll, Eoin Daly, Pat Woods, Adam Coady, William Ryan, Jack Flaherty, Tadgh O’Halloran, Tony Hogan, Ethan Maloney, Tony Gleeson, John O’Dwyer, Kieth Nealon, Padraig Gill, Bill O’Flaherty, Chris Armatage. Subs used: Thomas Coughlan.

Though we dominated possession in the first half and created many chances we just couldn’t make them count on the score board in this north Tipperary u21B Football championship group game. A penalty miss added to our woes in the first and saw us going in at half time trailing the home side 3 point to nil.

The second half was as frustrating as the first on the scoring front. Our task became doubly difficult 2 minutes into the second half when Borrisokane doubled their lead with a well taken penalty which left Paul Carroll no chance in the Burgess goal. With 45 minutes on the clock disaster struck again when a ball came back of the upright and fell to a Borris forward who slid the ball under the onrushing Paul Carroll leaving us 2-5 to 0-0 adrift.

We finally got our shooting boots on with 15 minutes left in the game after a fantastic individual score from Jack Flaherty. Paidi Gill chipped in with a good point after 54 minutes and followed up with a well worked goal 3 minutes later to leave the final score 2-6 to 1-2.
