U16s win Grade 3 Championship

The U16s claimed their first piece of silverware at the weekend defeating Drumragh in the Grade 3 Championship Final. Played in Beragh in fine conditions Eglish made a blistering start and thirteen minutes into the game had scored three goals with the score Eglish 3-3 Drumragh 0-2. Seamus Muldoon inside was causing the Drumragh defence all sorts of problems, and he had scored 2-1 at that stage. Eglish were playing some scintillating football and corner back Jordan Marlowe scored a great solo goal carrying the ball thirty yards before dispatching to the net and he also scored another goal right before half time. The game looked to out of reach for Drumragh at half time with the scoreline Eglish 5-6 Drumragh 1-8.


Drumragh came out fighting in the second half and twelve minutes in a goal which was preceded by some frees had reduced the game to eight points Eglish 5-9 Drumragh 2-10. Dillion Horsefield and Seamus Muldoon were still tagging on points keeping Drumragh at bay, but a goal from substitute Aidan Murtagh on twenty six minutes really put the game out of their reach. Full time score, Eglish 6-11 Drumragh 2-14.  Congratulations to all the players and management who have put in a massive effort and got their rewards on Sunday. Hard luck to Drumragh who put up a brave fight in the second half.
