Captain Ben Quilter raised the Rose Cup aloft following an epic day at rain drenched Killeen as our U13s fought off all comers to claim the prize.
Following two victories in the group stages over Ballymac and St Pauls Mungret we qualified to meet Ardfert in the semi finals. This was where we showed our true metal with a 3-9 to 0-5 victory to set us up for a final again the much fancied Laune Rangers.
In the final playing with the wind in the first half we conceded an early goal but we responded well with four unanswered points to lead slenderly by 1 at the break. A tremendous second half that saw up score four points to the Killorglin men’s two saw us run out two point winners 0-8 to 1-2.
Well done to Dennis Sayers, Armin Heinrich, Tom Foley, Joe Smith and all the squad for a memorable victory.
Squad-Ben Quilter, Kevin Barry, Joey Nagle, Cian Dillane, Ruairi OConnell, Josh Lynch, Armin Heinrich, Jordan Kissane, Evan Foley, Conor Horan, Donnacha Sayers, James Charles, Shane Bastible, Michael Lesniak, Caplin Carter-OFlynn, Dylan Hurley, Joe Reidy, Gavin Slattery, Donnacha Fox, Sean Collins, Johnny Feely, Enda Cahill.
