Kilmacud Crokes Under 15B V Lucan Sarsfields 

Championship C

On Sunday 8th May, Crokes Under15B footballers travelled to Lucan to play their first Championship match.

On a fine sunny morning in Arthur Griffith Park, they were very well supported by family and friends.

The lads had prepared well for this match and arrived at the pitch ready to give their best.

From the throw-in, Crokes showed that they were fully committed to the cause and sought to win the 50/50 challenges. Through their hard work and effort, they were able to obtain possession and used the ball efficiently to move into scoring positions.

The pitch surface was firm under foot and allowed Crokes to play some tremendous possession football at pace. The lads worked very hard to support each other and ran off shoulders to provide options for each other.

Crokes played excellent football through the first half and restricted Lucan Sarsfields to 3 scores.

Either side of halftime, some of the intensity dropped and Lucan came back into the game, scoring again just after half time.

To the great credit of the Crokes lads, they rolled up their sleeves and took command of the game again, using some excellent handpassing and movement to score a number of unanswered goals and points.

The lads showed tremendous team spirit, hard work and commitment to record a victory by 8-9 to 1-4 and a place in the Quarter Finals against Round Towers from Lusk
