U 10 FINAL
slightly biased account)
Portlaw N.S. under 10s played the final on the 20th of November. It
was a dark evening. There was heavy rain and strong winds. The pitch at Cleaboy
was full of puddles and was very mucky.
Mr Curran put out a strong team to play against Killea. “Killea were dirty;
they were cogging us with their boots,” says Thomas Murphy, Portlaw N.S.
centre half forward. But Portlaw proved to be the better team.
the first half, the game opened with Killea scoring a point. Then Portlaw
captain Richard Fitzpatrick lobbed the goalkeeper twice. Corner forward Luke
Duggan volleyed the ball home with a left kick for Portlaw. In the second half,
Thomas Murphy got around the goalkeeper and buried the ball in the bottom right
corner of the Killea net. With only five minutes to go, Killea scored a goal to
make the final score: Portlaw 4-1 to Killea 1-1. The jerseys were stuck to the
players, but the Portlaw boys didn’t mind. They performed a lap of honour
despite the bad weather.
Captain: Richard Fitzpatrick
