Under 11 Football:
The U11's had 3 home matches this weekend.
Clontarf   7-9   The Naul  1-24
This was a humdinger of a match. The two sides had a different approach when it came to scoring Clontarf with the Goals and The Naul woith the Skill points ( a High Catch ). They scored 15 skill points. When it looked like the Naul were pulling away  in the first half clontarf rattllied in 4 goals to go in 5 point up at half time.
In the second half it was a simaliar scenario The Naul came back into the game with a goal and 6 high catches to go into the lead with 10 mins left.Clontarf came back strongly at them and scored 2 goals in the last couple of mins to win by 3 points.An exceptional team effort to pull this out of the bag. and best  for Clontarf were Oisin O'Donoghue Grellan Murray and Darragh Ring.
Clontarf 1A   5-21    Na Fianna 1A   3-3
Clontarf had a great win over Na Fianna going in at half time leading 2-9  to 1-1. The boys played some beautiful football but the main improvement was the way they didn't let the opposition play the ball out.They all harried the opposition.  THe 2nd half started slowly for us and Na Fianna punished us with 2 quick goals to narrow the margin 2-9 to 3-1. We then started to move the ball around well and had our shooting boots on with some excellent scores. This was a great team effort best for Clontarf Cian Walsh , Sean O'Shea Nathan Doran.
Clontarf 1B    8-6   Na Fianna 1B    1-10
This was the best performance of the day by the boys. Everything fell into place , the passing , the movement , the concentration and the boys attitude. Super performance. Clontarf lead 6-2 to 1-5 at half time. Best for Clontarf were Paul Ashby , Conor Clinton Declan Adamson
