North Tipperary Under 16 'B' Football Final

 

Moneygall/Clonakenny 2-9

Newport 3-5

  

Report: Enda Treacy in Dolla

 

Moneygall/Clonakenny edged out a battling Newport team by the minimum late on, with a Cathal Greene point deep in added time being the difference in an absolute thriller of a North Under 16 'B' Football final last Monday evening.

You’ll do very well to see a more entertaining game of football than what these two teams produced with pure attacking football on show throughout the game, which was a joy to watch as both teams were very evenly matched, with a draw looking to be on the cards after 60 minutes of play.

It was cruel on Newport as they battled extremely hard and looked as though they had done enough and despite going behind 0-3 to 0-1 in the opening six minutes began to exploit gaps in the opposition defence John Joseph Ryan finish off a lovely flowing move low to the net in the 11th minute to nudge his side into a one-point lead.
