On Monday the 3rd of October our under 13s played the first round of the football championship. Ardfinnan played Rathkeevin in Rathkeevin and the referee was Derek O Mahoney. At the start of the first half both sides started very well. Then Rathkeevin got four points followed  by a goal. Near the end of the first half Darragh O Brien  got a point  from a free for Ardfinnan. Soon  after the  Rathkeevin goalkeeper  pulled off a number of great saves. The half  time score was Rathkeevin 1-4, Ardfinnan 0-1. The second half saw Ardfinnan lift their game. After scoring 2 points  Ardfinnan were lifted by a brilliant goal from Conor Burke. We were just  2 points down… but Rathkeevin counter- attacked  and they scored two quick goals and that finished off the game as a contest. Next week  we play New Inn  and hope  to  win!
