All county minor football championship – first round

11/09/2013

Last night our minor footballers played in the first round of the all county championship. In ideal conditions St Enda’s got off to a whirl wind start with a goal from James McAuley in the third minute. McAuley who would go on to score three goals on the night was causing all sorts of problems with his running from deep positions. With the defence blocking all that Ballymena could throw at them, St Enda’s extended their lead to 2.05 to 0.02 at half time with three points from Ruairi Scott a second goal for James McAuley and a point for Gareth Morgan.

Ballymena got the first score of the second half straight from the throw in, but that was as good as it got. Three more goals early on killed the game off with Donal Walsh, James McAuley and Ruairi Scott all finishing to the net. Five more points from Scott and a lovely long range point from Anthony Curran completed the scoring. Next Tuesday we play St Gall’s in the quarter final at Hightown.

The team was – Brendan Morgan, Corry Beggs, Fintan Eastwood, Diarmuid McNulty, Peter Healy, Kevin Hillen, Conor Morgan, Harry Griffin, Cormac Eastwood, Gareth Morgan (0.01), Ruairi Scott (1.08, 5f), Anthony Curran (0.01), Donal Walsh (1.0), James McAuley (3.0), Conan Little, subs Michael McNamee, Killian Jennings, Tomas Eastwood, Joe Maskey,

2020 U16 Captain Conor McAlister tells us what it's like to play corner back1. Why do you enjoy playing Corner Back?*You can see th game unfolding ,anticipate danger and build attacks.2.Whats your favourite in game moment from this position*The McMullan semi-final victory against Dunloy was a fantastic performance as a defensive unit. We kept the Dunloy attacked to 3 scores.3. Who is your favourite player in this position*Cathal Barrett, he is the sort of corner back that gives corner forwards sleepless nights. He is utterly fearless in his approach he's also as skillful as he is tough.4.What advice do you have for future corner backs?*Don't just try to knock the ball away at any time on the tackle. Time your tackle to when he has to bounce the ball or solo. It's easier when he is not holding it.5. You captained the U16 team during the 2020 season. Do you think this affected your game?*Being captain was a great role. The team's dedication and hard work payed off as we improved throughout the season.(Via @PRógCairanNE @ciaranmcginley73 ) ...
