Mentors: Denis Sayers, Pat Slattery, Armin Heinrich, Éamonn Scanlon, Ed O’Connor. Final Score:- AdeS: 4-14; Ballymac: 1-6. Having been somewhat critical of our overall performances in this campaign, it was a pleasure to watch this fantastic display last Sunday (13th) in a sun-drenched Cahersalee. Although it took us some time to get going, we dragged ourselves into the game and showed our battling qualities with some excellent defensive blocks and tackles, especially by Donncha Fox and Kevin Barry. It was great to see Jordan Kissane back to near his best. He proved to be a handful for the Ballymac defence and linked up very well with James Charles and Noah Townsend. Shane (‘don’t do mornings!’) Bastible began to exert a huge influence from centre forward and truly played a captain’s role. After a great save by Ben Quilter, we went in at the break with a seven point lead. Sa dara leath, Ballymac played a sweeper system. Then, Enda Cahill was allowed the run of the park and, oh boy, did he exploit his freedom, even ending a great move with an exceptional finish to the top corner of the Ballymac líontán! Superb! Was Noah watching? Conor Horan and Armin Heinrick began to dominate in the midfield battle. John Feely and Evan Foley plundered a lot of breaking ball, as a result of which we began to stretch our lead. Ruairí O’Connell and Joey Nagle surged forward at every opportunity and they were ably supported by the lightning-quick Josh Lynch. We were well on top in the last quarter and showed great class with a number of well-worked scores. The introduction of Togor Silong, Donnacha Sayers, Cian Dillane, John Duggan and Jack Doyle ensured that there was no halt to our gallop or stop to our advances; it was great to be able to bring on such great quality players. Jack Murphy and Colm Brown were introduced for the final ten minutes and showed why our U14 stars have had such a fantastic season; both players continued our attacking surges from the back and kept a brave Blue’n’Gold team on the back foot. The final whistle blew and we were victorious! Ag séideadh deireanach fheadóg an réiteora bhí buachaillí na Carraige go maith chun tosaigh le farrasbarr mór. Captain Shane Bastible gracefully received the cup on behalf of this group of hard-working Super Rockies. Players unavailable on the day: Darragh Moriarty, Dean Rusk, Cillian Litchfield, Gavin Slattery. This was our last competition of the year and we’ve completed a ‘clean sweep’ having added the Town League to our Central League and County League successes. A great future awaits these boys if they maintain high standards of training and work ethic. Fair-play, gentlemen, and well done! Tar éis an chluiche, labhair Tadhg Mac Mathúna, Cathaoirleach Roinn na nÓg, agus dúirt sé: “great credit is due to the players and to the mentors (Denis Sayers, Armin Heinrich, Ed O’Connor, Éamonn Scanlon and Pat Slattery) for a tremendous year by these outstanding Black’n’Amber boys, a season in which the ‘clean sweep’ of County, Central and Town titles were attained.” Bheadh na leaideanna seo molta dá mbeimis inár dtost!
