October 6th U15A Championship Semi-final Kilmacud Crokes 2-12 v Clanna Gael Fontenoy 1-9.
This semi-final took place in a sunny October afternoon in Pairce De Burca. Clanna Gael started strongly and had an early goal chance prevented by a great challenge just before getting their kick away. The first goal of the game came shortly after and Clanna Gael took the early lead. Crokes responded with three well taken points and with 10 minutes gone Clanna Gael were one point ahead. Continuing this good spell for Crokes they hit their first goal which was followed by a point to give them the lead. Back came Clanna Gael who again were stopped from scoring a goal, this time by a brilliant save from Clodagh the Crokes keeper. Clanna Gael scored the next two points and then Crokes hit a strong spell and got the next four points leaving Crokes ahead by five. Clanna Gael finished the half strongly scoring the next three points to leave it 1-8 Crokes to 1-6 Clanna Gael at the break.
On the resumption this game continued end to end with chances going a begging for both sides in the early exchanges. Clanna Gael were first to score with a point and then a penalty was awarded to Crokes which was put over for a point. Crokes scored another point to open a gap of three points with 15 minutes left to play. Goal for Crokes with Susie scoring her second of the day leaving Crokes 6 ahead. Back come Clanna Gael with the next two points and significant pressure on the Crokes defence. The Crokes defence stood up to the pressure and through a very tense final few minutes Crokes were able to close out the game with two well taken frees by Emma. Super game and a fantastic display of open attacking football by both teams who are a credit to their clubs and served up a very entertaining game of football.
