Beara Minor Semi Final

Castletownbere met Urhan in The Minor Beara Championship Semi Final in Cahermore on Sunday last in great conditions for the time of year. It was an exciting, tense match and the Castletownbere lads knew that they would be up against it with a tight panel of twelve against a strong Urhan side. Referee Tadhg O’Sullivan blew the whistle and the battle began. Urhan notched up two points in the first few minutes followed swiftly by a point from ‘Town. Urhan put their third over then suddenly, ‘Town took their chance and the ball hit the back of the Urhan net. Urhan retaliated with a goal but the ‘Town lads hit back with three points and the teams were level. Castletown followed it up with their fifth point but Urhan answered with a point and two goals but again Castletown dug deep scoring two more points narrowing the margin and the first half ended on the score of 1/7 to 3/4. The second half saw the tension build, the teams level four more times, and it was Urhan that clinched the victory by two points in the end on the full time score of 3/12 to 4/11. The Castletownbere lads must be commended for their great heart, teamwork and unfaltering determination throughout the match. Castletownbere Coiste na nÓg would like to thank the Minor team and their mentors for their dedication throughout the year, to wish those players that are moving on from underage football all the best and to wish Urhan and Adrigole the best in the final. Team – Christopher O’Donoghue, Micháel Murphy, Oliver Byrne, James Musgrove, Kieran Higgins, Áed O’Shea(0/1), Owen Power(0/1), Richard Murphy(0/2), Cormac Whelan(2/6), Óisín Murphy(1/1), Adam Hurley(0/1), Ultan O’Shea.
