Derg lads through to Championship Semi Final

Date Filed: 12 August 2022

In perfect conditions for football the U-17 lads played St John's tonight in the quarter final of The Championship.

With a few of the lads unavailable we called upon a number of our U-15s to help out. St John's started quickest with a well worked goal, however the reds dug deep and with some well taken scores of their own and hard work throughout the team they went in 1-6 to 1-3 up at half time.

The second half continued as the first ended with the lads working hard and keeping the scoreboard ticking over. St John's free taking kept little between both teams with them scoring 8 points from frees in total - something to work on. The final few minutes were nip and tuck, however after all the effort the lads had put in they were not going to let this one slip and ran out well deserved winners on a scoreline of 1-11 to 2-10.

Well done everyone and a very special thank you to the younger lads who stepped in tonight.

Thank you to parents and supporters for getting the lads out tonight and in the next few weeks as we prepare for the Semi Final.

Up the Derg.
