The Lions U12 Team played in the Nicholas Marnell Cup Final last Friday night, 26th May in Dermidus Pitch, Kilkenny against Evergreen B. Evergreen’s A team had been beaten by Dean Celtic and we had beaten Dean Celtic on the previous Monday night in the semi-final to qualify for this final.
Evergreen B had beaten Freebooters. It was a beautiful evening for a final and our lads started off at an amazing pace and never stopped untill the final whistle was blown. They scored two amazing goals in the first half – the first one was a corner from Bobby Murphy. The ball came in and Will Healy headed it to the net.
The second goal came from a long distance clearance which John Paul Murphy got on the end of and he crossed it to Sean Kavanagh who blasted it into the net. From then on the Lions took control with Bobby Murphy, Ciaran Flynn, Jamie Dooley and goalie Laughlin Curran who formed a defensive line that was never broken and saw the Lions win The Marnell Cup.
Team: Laughlin Curran, Jamie Dooley, Ciaran Flynn, Bobby Murphy, Sean Kavanagh, Diego Pellicer, Sean Brennan, Will Healy, John Paul Murphy, Captain Subs: Padraig Phelan, Michael O’Brien, Adam Waite, Kevin Meade, Brandon Donohue, Neil Stanley, Michael Fitzpatrick.
