Date: 3rd February 2019 Venue AGP2 Opposition St Judes
Competition U15 Division 1
Final Score Lucan 2-06
St Judes 3-04
On a very damp and breezy morning Lucan U15 commenced their League campaign against a very determined St Judes. The wind made the match into a typical game of two halves, with Lucan defending stoutly in the first half but still made good forays into the Judes area to take some good scores. Two points down at half time and Lucan started to eat into the lead and took a two point lead going into the final minutes. A free lobbed into the Lucan goal area sneaked into the goal and suddenly the lads were 1 point down. With time still on the clock Lucan attacked but could not get the equalizing score and Judes ran out winners by a solitary point.
Squad: Cathal Doody, Jack Doyle, Eoin Kilduff, Joey McSweeney, Alex Hickey, Finn Bruton Zach Delmar, Jamie Smith, Jack Behan, Conor Hylands, Conor Sheary, Rian Fortune, Michael Cunningham, Gareth Kennedy, Charlie Mulqueen, Colin Duffy, David Mulqueen, Rossa Daly, Joey Dunne, Luca Kavanagh (injured).
Scorers: Rian Fortune (1-05), Gareth Kennedy (1-00), Joey Dunne (0-01)
Meanwhile in the U-15 Division 7 league, Lucan got off to a great start to the year by overcoming Scoil Ui Chonaill on a score line of 10-10 to 3-09.
Well done to all the teams competing at the weekend.
