The under 16s lost out to Clonard last night in the division 5 county final on a final score of 5-08 to 3-03. The final score is probably a bit flattering for Clonard as we conceded some very soft goals, but having said that, they were certainly deserving of their win. We started well and were leading by 1-01 to 0-03 with only minutes to go in the first half but a flurry of scores from Clonard meant that they had a commanding half time lead at 2-05 to 1-01. The second half never really got going in terms of scores and it took a late surge from Clonard to extend the gap to 11 points by the end of the game. This Monageer/Boolavogue team is very young and all bar two of the players are underage again next year.
