Under 9 Boys Football vs Skerries Harps - Sat 17th May

The U9's were missing a few boys due to First Communions but still turned out a very impressive display against Skerries across all 3 teams.
The U9 boys Orange team put in a tremendous battling display against a very strong Skerries team on a hot Saturday morning in St Annes. Fine midfield performances from Cian Lumley and Killian McGuirk and from Cormac O'Reilly in attack kept Raheny within touching distance as Skerries went in 9-6 ahead at the break. Skerries started the 2nd Half strongly and took some great scores to stretch their lead. However, determined defensive play from Brian Reddy, Jack Kirby and Kevin Kelly kept Raheny in it. As the heat started to take its toal Raheny finished the stronger and good attacking play by Harry Keegan and Jamie Lambert yielded some fine late points. In the end Skerries finished winners 21-17 but 10 skills points earned from tremendous blocking by Raheny demonstrated how hard they fought to the end.   

The U9 Green team put in their performance of the season so far with a good win over Skerries. This was an excellent team performance with the Raheny boys taking the right option time and again, always looking out for the team mate in a better position and taking their chances when they presented. Niall Cox and Michael Quinn were dominant in defence all through chipping in with some great blocks earning valuable skill points. Conor Nugent worked tirelessly in midfield setting up some great scores while John McNally, Matthew Sherlock, Aaron Miller, James Wall and Jack McCarthy worked hard for their team and took some great scores. Well done lads, keep it up.

The U9 boys White team had a tough evenly matched game against Skerries Harps.  There was very good defensive play from David Adams and Adam Flynn, to keep Raheny in the game in the first half, with Ryan Markham making a few saves off the line and providing some nice kick out balls.  Padraig Reilly and Paul Moriarity battled hard in midfield with some good passing to the forward line of Vincent Lin and Adam Loscher.  Raheny secured some great skills points with blocks from a number of players, and overall the team supported each other with some good hand passing and kick passes when attacking.  Our lads fought and battled hard to the end with Skerries winning by 1 point.

 
Our Seniors footballers have drawn Lucan in the next round of the championship, match details will be posted on twitter and facebook.
