Ballyroan Boys NS v’s St Lorcains.
In the first half, the team found it very hard to get going. We were constantly mis-catching the ball and giving free kicks away, even though we had a powerful line up. We had Scott McAllister in goal, Pearse Brewster and Stephen O’Coonor corner backs with Freddy Dermody full back. John Keane was half back, Luken Mullins centre back and Lorcan Duff the other half back. Shane Mullarkey and Jake Carter were midfield. James Brennan was centre forward. Ryan Culleton was wing forward and the free taker. Ruairi Deignan wing forward, Fionn Callan full forward and the Kearney twins, Louis & Zach were corner forwards. The subs were Harry Judge, Matthew Lynch, Dean Kiernan, Mark Comeford and Aidan Gormely.
At half time we were four points down. Thanks to an inspiring “chat” from Mr Murphy where he spelt out how the lack of preparation before the game where we didn’t do our preparation drills well was reflected in our performance. We now had a chance to put things right. So we all put our hands in and shouted BALLYROAN! We were now committed to making our school proud.
We dominated the second half with scores coming left, right and centre. We were outstanding!
We won by a comfortable margin in the end, 5.5 to 2.5.
