U14C League West Final

Having gone down by a point in their previous league clash, Sologhead went into the game keen to make amends for the earlier defeat and by the end of the first half were well on their way with 1-3 on the scoreboard while holding their opponents scoreless. Helped on by 1-2 by Paudie Franklin and an Aaron Ryan point in the first period, the six point advantage going into the second half would be priceless as the Kickhams came storming back with 1-1.

The Kickhams revival continued and with the game approaching the last five minutes they were awarded a penalty which they converted to go two points up. But Sologhead weren’t to be denied and literally from the kick out laid siege on the

Kickhams goals and made the pressure pay off as Aaron Ryan, Brahim Ryan and Dillon Ryan all found the net to put Sologhead firmly in the driving seat and on their way to victory.

Overall a well contested U14C League Final and a great all round team victory in which team captain Denis O’Shea, Jack Redican, Ethan Cummins, Evan Hanrahan, Dean Morrissey and goalie Seamus Burns were others to shine for Sologhead.

After the game Paddy Fitzgerald Secretary of West Bord Na nOg presented a delighted Sologhead captain Denis O’Shea with the winners shield. Final score, Sologhead 4-4 Kickhams 2-2.

This is Sologheads third under age West Title in three years and credit must go to all the parents and mentors in bringing the players along to training and matches.
