KILSKYRE/MOYLAGH 1-15 DUNDERRY 2-11
This game will go down as one of the best of the year with a large attendance in Kildalkey. The young men from Kilskyre/Moylagh and Dunderry put on a spectical in which the North Meath combination of Kilskyre and Moylagh came out victorious in the end in dramatic style. With five minutes to go and five points behind most teams would throw the towel in and take their defeat, but not the Kilskyre/Moylagh men. When Willie Mc Grath hit the back of the net and a point directly after we were heading for one of the most dramatic finishes of the year and then it happened, Seanie Geraghty pops up with the equaliser. Then the moment the Kilskyre/Moylagh followers went crazy was when the outstanding Charles Brogan sent over the winner and the U21 trophy was heading for North Meath.
In a game in which Dunderry started the better team they raced into a 6 point lead at one stage with two well taken goals by Christopher Harrington, but Kilskyre/Moylagh clawed their way back before half time to go into the break with only two points behind 0-9 to 2-5. In the second half it was end to end until Dunderry started to stretch their lead to five points it looked like Dunderry had the trophy in their display cabinet, and then we had the finish which was material of dreams for the young men from Kilskyre and Moylagh. Ciaran Hannon played superbly in goals throughout, in front of him Colm Melia and Ewan Feeney put in solid performances. The half back line of James Baugh, Johnathan Reilly and the Man of the Match Gary Reilly who was a tower of strength. In mid field the Geraghty brothers, Michael and Seanie who ran the show as usual, Niall Farrelly had three well taken points, Kieran Foley and Luke Nolan played their hearts out, but it was the Willie Mc Grath and the Charles Brogan show at the end, with their scores that were crucial for a victory for Kilskyre/Moylagh. Final score in Kildalkey was Kilskyre/Moylagh 1-15 Dunderry 2-11.
