The match, like any semi final was a tight run affair with Bohs enjoying most of the territorial advantage.
Bohs defence was strong, firing off the line to nullify the OC threat, particularly through their midfield.
The game was low scoring, both teams fighting hard, however, the OC executed whenever they managed to get into the red zone, while the home team were just not behind the eight ball in attack on the day.
Old Crescent took a two point advantage with two minutes remaining and managed to hold out for the win.
Joy for the men in blue and white; Despair for the men in red.
Sport can be unforgiving, tough, and bitter on the palate…but as the report is being drafted, the WhatsApp is dinging…. messages from both Parents and Coaches with a similar train of thought…. onwards and upwards…. organising the next training session and match with thumbs up emojis aplenty.
So, in summary, well done to Old Crescent on the victory and best of luck in the final.
And to our own U14 squad, hard luck but I think the aforementioned emoji sums it up succinctly…
Training resumes on Thursday at 6.30pm in Annacotty with a view to a challenge match on Sunday next.
