U21 Football Championship -

Glenbower Rovers 4-16 Carrignavar 4-10 (after extra time).

This was a hard earned victory for our U21 footballers. This proved to be a very entertaining and competitive contest by two great footballing teams. Carrignavar went 1-1 ahead in the opening minutes before David Cahill rattled the net and got us on the score sheet. We knuckled down from there on with our midfield taking control of the game and our back line solid in defence.

Both teams traded scores to see us level at half time on a scoreline 2-5 to 1-8. Second half started brightly with an inch perfect pass from Tadgh O'Connor to the waiting Sean Long who rattled the net.

Within minutes Carrignavar were level. A controversial goal by Carrignavar stunned us temporarily and with only 7 minutes left on the clock we found ourselves trailing by three points. To be fair the lads never gave up and we tacked on two more points and a free at the death to send us into extra time. Again we started brightly with points from Johnny Rohan and Alan Keniry that saw us open the gap before Kevin Lane goaled on the stroke of half time to see us go in 4-13 to 3-10 at the beak.

Tadgh O'Connor opened the scoring for the second half. We then conceded a penalty to Carrignavar which gave them a glimmer of hope but we stuck to the task and tacked on three more points to see us win out on a scoreline of 4-16 to 4-10 and advance to the semi-final.

Well done to all involved. J
