Great first half performance by under 14 footballers.
The Shelmalier under 14 footballers took on Gorey for the second week, this time in the semi final of the football championship on Saturday in St Patricks Park. The Shels boys were first on the scoreboard with early points from Shane Birney and Conor Tobin. Gorey soon replied with point of their own to level matters, before Niall Tobin forced the ball over the Gorey goal line to give his side the lead. Some great play from Paraic O Leary, Dean Corrigan, AJ Lehane in defense and Glen Murphy and Craig McCabe in mid field helped the black and amber side to lead by a single point at half time. Gorey came out the stronger in the second half with three quick points, before captain Glen Murphy pointed for the Shelmaliers. Gorey slowly took control as the game progressed and ran out winners to progress to their second final.
