Minor B Footballers Start 2015 Season in Style with win vs Lucan 2015-02-17 14:04:00

Our Minor B Footballers got their 2015 campaign off to a great start on Sunday morning in Arthur Griffith Park. The 6-13 to 0-5 score line does not paint the full picture as the game started with Sarsfields firmly on the front foot dominating possession for the first 10 minutes. As Lucan laid siege in Brigids half our full back line held steady and managed to close down every opportunity aided by the strong hand of their keeper Jamie Rogers. Aaron Dolly, Connor Webb and Rory Hanley marshalled the 21 masterfully which was a blow to Sarsfields who had nothing to show for their early efforts, in turn this seemed to lift the rest of our team as Brigids took over from there on.
Good running and strong tackling from the O Loon brothers along with the other half backs and midfielders saw the lads start to overpower Lucan around the middle. With a foothold around centre field the lads kicked on and started to pick off scores with good movement and point taking from the likes of Conal Burke, Daniel Cullinan and Cathal O?Brien. Cormac Gilbert rounded off an impressive first half performance with a well taken goal before having to go off injured at half time. The lads led 1-05 to 0-03 at the break. From there on it was all about the forward play. The movement and support play on show was of a high quality. All forwards played well with noteworthy mentions going to Daniel O Connell, Killian Molloy and a strong performance from Charlie Murray.
With the maximum number of subs being used in the game and all making an impact,  it is obvious that there is a strong panel and a fight for places lies ahead for all.
