The U16A Footballers opened the year with an away win over Castleknock. Lucan played the first half against a strong breeze and Castleknock pounced first with an early goal. However, as the half progressed, Lucan began to play some great football, quick offloads, good recycling and began to build a lead as the first half drew to a close. Castleknock then got a couple of scores to leave the sides level at half time, 3-5 each. This was despite Lucan playing some great team football which was not reflective in the score.The second half began with Lucan picking off a few points and building up a 3 point lead. However, a harsh second yellow card meant we played the last 20 minutes with 14 men. However, it did not deter from the team building on the lead, and also confining Castleknock to a solitary point in the second half. Some great defending and scores from the forwards in the second half laid the foundation for a well-deserved win at the end.

Castleknock 3-6 - Lucan Sarsfields 3-13
