On Saturday the U12 boys Senior and Development teams travelled to Scotstown in round 4 of their respective Division 1 and Division 5 competitions.
First up was the Senior U12 Senior Team. The lads started well, and went in leading at half time 5-2 to 1-5. An early Daniel Mc Shane goal setting the lads on their way. The lads started well in the 2nd half, and looked to be cruising, but a very determined Scotstown came storming back into the game, and really made the Blayney lads work very hard to win the game. Final Score Faughs 6-10 Scotstown 4-8.
Next up was the U12 Development Team. This was a very tight and competitive game right from the start. A very determined and battling first half saw the young Faughs lads leading at half time 2-5 to 0-6. Scotstown start to the 2nd half swung the game in their favor, with their physically stronger midfield dominating the kick outs, but the young faughs lads showed great spirit and determination to fight back into the game, and were very unlucky for a number of goal chances in the last 10 minutes as the Scotstown keeper made a number of very good saves. Overall another very determined and committed performance from this group of young players. Final Score Faughs 4-8 Scotstown 3-17.
