Our junior team had a draw with Rapparee’s in Bellefield this evening.
Our junior travelled to Bellefield after the trip to Pairc Charman. Conditions in Bellefield were even hotter than at previous game in Wexford. Shels fielding several players from the previous match worked hard but found themselves 4 points adrift at half time. However the entire team put the shoulder to the wheel and were rewarded by a draw and were in fact a point ahead just on full time, with the Rapps grabbing a late equaliser. Willie Redmond pulled off a couple of great saves to deny Rapps victory. Final score Shels 3-12 to 2-15. Again we had a good all round team effort and we were best served by Willie O’Shaughnessy who had a fantastic game also Ronan Kavanagh, Kevin O’Leary, Stephen Whelan, Chris Gordon & Shane Birney.
Team: Willie Redmond, Stephen Whelan, Darren Malone, Kevin O’Leary, Mick Kelly, Denis Kelly, Bryan Tobin, Conor Tobin, Willie O’Shaughnessy, Shane Birney, Noel Mythen, Ronan Kavanagh, Chris Gordon, Conor Byrne, Shane Griffith. Sub introduced Cathal Gaule.
