Crossmolina Win Corofin U12 Tournament. 


On Saturday 24th September we returned to home of the current all-Ireland club champions Corofin to play in their prestigious Tournament


We were welcomed back as defending champions having seen off the host club in the semi-final last year and St Marys Carrick On Shannon in the final


We had 3 teams involved on the day in the cup, the plate, and the shield. We had 2 teams that were 11 aside and 1 team of 9. The groups were the same for all teams we all faced St Marys of Carrick-on-Shannon first followed by the might of Kilmacud Crokes Dublin and our last game of the round robin was against St Marys Sligo


The difficulty in the challenge for us was competing against clubs with a much larger number of players to choose from we needed players from our U10 squad to help with the 3rdteam. Most teams there had lads that were physically much bigger than our lads but that did nothing to deter our lads from giving their all. We were delighted with the efforts of all and the never say die attitude of all players when we behind in games


One team progressed to the semi-final of the cup Competition and were once again pitted against the might of Corofin as they had come 2nd in their group. Templeouge Synge Street Dublin were the winners of that group while a very gallant Claremorris finished 3rd and the 4th team in that group were the maroon and white of Doora Barefield from Clare


We overcame Corofin in a great battle to reach the finalwhile Kilmacud emerged victorious in the Dublin derby. The toll of the hard days football was beginning to tell and our lads were out on their feet we started well and Built up a half time lead but began to falter new energy arrived in the form of 2 lads from team 2 (sanctioned by Corofin ) and that was all we needed to see us emerge as 1 point victors

Fionan Duffy pointed after thirty two minutes and the next four points for Belmullet were scored by Gary Boylan in a ten minutes spell  Fionan Duffy replied with a pointed free after 47 minutes five minutes later Ryan Donoghue waltzed past a couple of defenders to score the only goal of the game and Fionan Duffy closed the scoring after a miserable for the Crossmolina men.
