U8 Football - Match Report

posted 7 Sep 2012, 09:47 by James Lawless

The U8 footballers begun their Autumn fixtures with a game at home vs. St Edwards Rathcoffey on Saturday 1st September.  A large panel was available for a very hard fought win with the teams very closely matched.  A strong first quarter from St Edwards saw them leading by two points, but Sallins came back strongly in the second and third quarters to see them leading by 7 points to 6 at the start of the last quarter.  The last quarter again was very even with the play from one end to another but a late point gave Sallins a very close victory by 9 points to 8.  A good start to the Autumn but improvements will have to be made for tougher matches to come.  The panel has now played 7 games in 2012, winning 5 of them.
