posted 22 Apr 2014, 01:13 by Skerries Harps

A beautiful sunny Easter Saturday morning at the Ballast Pit was the setting for a double challenge win for the Moriarty SuperValu sponsored u13 boys footballers over Fingallians. 

The Bs seemed to struggle with the early throw-in before a rally halfway through the first half, saw them trail by one point at half time. But it was the sea-siders in the second half who showed their class and some great forward movements, resulted in a great 6-12 to 3-9 victory.

The A team experienced a much stiffer challenge.The lads never got into their stride but some hard endeavour kept them in touch with their neighbours.Having trailed the Swords men for the entire game, they scored three late points without reply to take the honours by the minimal margin, 0-12 to 2-5. 

Well done to both teams and a happy Easter to all the lads and their families.
