Under 11 Footballers taste victory at Colmcilles’ Invitational Tournament.
Congratulations to the under 11 football panel that showed real grit and determination coupled with high levels of skill to win the St. Colmcilles’ invitational tournament in Co. Meath on Sunday. They had to overcome some worthy opposition during the group stage, beating Trim, Colmcilles from Meath and St Eunan’s of Letterkenny. By topping the group with three convincing wins Ballinteer were pitted against a hotly tipped Kilmacud Crokes team in the semi final. It looked ominous early on when Crokes showed their customary composure and built up an eight point lead. However, our boys dug deep and displayed resolve to overcome what seemed to the doubters like an insurmountable lead and came out eventual winners after a string of brilliant goals.
