The U14 Football team won the shield final with a very dramatic finish over Bennettsbridge on Monday evening.  With strong winds and bitterly cold conditions the boys showed great spirit in a dogged battle in a game which scores were very hard to come by. Bennettsbridge led by 1-1 to a solitary Ben Savage goal at half time.  Jason Byrne added another goal  but the Bridge boys tagged on another 2-01 and it looked like the shield was heading out of town.  Trailing by 5 points in the final minutes we couldn't have had a more exciting finish with Aaron Foley slamming home two great goals to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. The game finished 4-0 to 3-02. The whole panel played a big part in this victory and they can all be very proud of their performance.
