COUNTY DIV.1 U16 FINAL
Killarney Legion1-15 Austin Stacks 4-14
A first half dominant performance by the Stacks in which they led 3-5 to 0-6 at the break effectively won the game for the Tralee side.Making full use of their physical advantage they made their possession tell and hit for goals at crucial stages to give them the foundation for the win.A pity because this Legion side has a lot more about them and they showed this in the second half where they managed to bring a 9 point deficit down to a goal.However the Stacks responded and tacked on a series of points to eventually run out 8 point winners.No fault to this very good Legion side who have performed superbly this year under Daithí McGillicuddy Paddy Osbourne,Aaron Benson and Diarmuid O Donoghue.While not intending to single out any individual as all the players gave what they had one would have to say that goalie Christian Casey performed heroics and was certainly one of the stand outs on the day.
The club are very happy and grateful to welcome Rentokil Initial as senior ladies sponsors.Managing director Mike O Mahony made the presentation to the girls in Derreen and we look forward to a happy joint venture.
