The Under 21 team suffered a heartbreaking defeat to St. Colums on Saturday last in the Championship Semi-Final. Having fought back bravely from four points down with ten minutes remaining, to go ahead by one point deep into injury time, they were caught with a late “soft” goal which on this occasion was rough justice of the hardest variety.
Defeat on a final scoreline of 4-5 to 0-15 was made all the more difficult by a second half sending off which was one of many strange refereeing decisions throughout the match. It was a cruel result for both players and mentors alike.
