The Derg lads through to the final

Date Filed: 26 August 2022

Tonight the U-17 lads travelled to face a much fancied Saval team in the Championship Semi Final. 
The reds began slow and gifted Saval two goals in the first ten minutes but dug deep to keep themselves in the game. Saval kept the scoreboard ticking over too and went in at half time with a six point lead.

Determined not to go out without a fight the Derg men battled hard in the second half and going into the last five minutes brought the difference back to three points - but what a last five minutes these young reds had. Every single one of them stood up, pushed each other on and finished the much stronger team. Their efforts were duly rewarded as they hit the net in the closing minutes and with seconds to go hit the winning score from a free to win by a single point. 

Full time score 2-11 to 3-9

This was a fantastic game of football and the win was exactly what this group of very talented young men deserve.

Well done lads you did yourselves and your club proud tonight - but nothing won yet!

Thanks again to parents and supporters for getting the boys out and for your continued support in helping us prepare for the final
