LUCAN SARSFIELDS

U21 B Championship Final: Lucan Sarsfields 1-18 Thomas Davis 1-11. 12th Lock 26/11/2022
It was a windy day in the 12th lock with a strong 7 point southerly making the potential for a game of two halves. Fortunately, Lucan won the toss and elected to play with the wind. The first couple of opportunities for Lucan were well worked and even with the advantage of the wind the team needed experience and sound judgement to make the most of the conditions. Thomas Davis also managed to work the scoreboard but with much greater effort. Many of the Lucan points came from distance with some lovely points from frees and play with some points coming from outside the 45 aided by the strong wind. Lucan had restricted Thomas Davis to few chances but unfortunately conceded a well worked goal just before half time. The first half finished Lucan 0-14 to Davis 1-05 making an anxious start to the second half for the large contingent of home supporters.

The second half was much more structured for Lucan who rarely conceded possession. Set piece play, Kick outs and frees were well managed thanks to Alex Bernie in Goal and Henry Keogh in midfield, this allowed a sound platform for Lucan to further build on their first half lead and although scoring was closer Thomas Davis did not take advantage of the conditions as Lucan persisted through teamwork and pressure exerted by the Lucan defence. A goal by Jack Lawlor in the closing minutes and a couple of points by Jack Behan and Mark Lavin secured the result for Lucan.

Super morning for the lads. They showed some great skills and team work also. They did not let the strong winds stop them. Well done boys!
