Our 2nd Year Footballers faced a strong Presentation Carlow team on Friday.
St. Mary’s CBS started well, with David Timmons knocking over a free. Carlow quickly responded scoring the next two points but the CBS didn’t let that affect them as they gathered momentum and lead 1-9 to 1-3 at half time.
The second half had a slow start and it was Carlow who kicked the first point before Portlaoise pulled one back. Two goals from Shane Carroll really kicked the lads into gear and Ethan O Connor also hit the net. Despite Carlow’s late fight back they fell short and the final score was 4-11 to 4-6 to St. Mary’s CBS. The lads now top their group with 2 wins and advance to the next round. Well done all.
Special thanks to TY’s Darren Brennan and David Reddin for the match report and photos.
