Boys U/13 – In a nail biting final, Templemore beat Clerihan on penalties. The score at the end of full time was 1-1 with goals scored by Alan O’Donnell (Clerihan) & Enna McBride (Templemore). The same score stood at the end of extra time. To separate the 2 team, the match went to penalties with Templemore winning 1-0 & the winning penalty scored by Enna McBride. It was a very exciting match with nothing between the 2 sides. Well done to both teams, it really is very hard for any team to lose on penalties. The winning Templemore team was Patrick Cadell, Enna McBride, Paul Bergin, Michael Fogarty, Shane Doyle, Andrew Ormond & Ciaran Byrne.
