Kinvara U-12 Football Challenge, Weds 15th May 2013

Kinvara 2-10.......Loughrea 3-6

Kinvara U-12 Footballers got their season off to a great start with a great performance against Loughrea.

As this was the first match these lads have played in nearly a full year it was great to get the cobwebs off. Playing into a strong breeze in the first half the Kinvara lads were very ring rusty and found the going very tough.

However they continued to battle and started to play some good football including some key block downs and great defending. They went into the half time break down by 5 points on score line of 1-2 V 2-4.

Now playing with the aid of the breeze the Kinvara lads took control and played some fantastic football with great passing movements which ended in great scores. All players including subs gave their all, and fought back to take the lead and hold on for a one point win. This was truly a great performance and all goes well for the upcoming match against Ballinasloe.
