Pobal unfortunate in final loss

posted Nov 3, 2013, 9:49 AM by Unknown user   [ updated Nov 3, 2013, 1:38 PM ]

Pobal Ui Chaoimh minors lost to Fermoy 1-8 to 0-8 in Castlemagner today. In a scrappy game playing in poor weather conditions, Pobal came up short against a strong Fermoy team. Falling behind early in first half, the lads battled back well and were unlucky to miss a series of goal opportunities with one chance cleared off the line and an Eoghan MacSweeney shot rattling the underside of the bar. Led by excellent performances at midfield by Gary O'Connor and Padraig Collins, Pobal came out strong in the second half with good scores by Chris White but couldn't claw Fermoy back. More missed opportunities followed with Pa Doyle keeping Pobal in the game at the other end. The team fought bravely till the end but to no avail. Hard luck to players and management.
