Well done to Emmet O’Conghaile and the Dublin Senior footballers on securing a league final spot.
Again the weather played havoc with fixtures so all action was CCC1 related. U11s played 4 games vs St. Brigids, one match report below. In the U-12 Football A Blitz Group 1, Lucan fell to a very strong Castleknock team but fought bravely throughout. In the U-12 Football C Blitz Group 4, Lucan were defeated by an equally strong St. Vincents team. In the U-12 Football E Blitz Group 1, Lucan lost out to lost to Naomh Mearnog by 2-09 to 2-01. Lucan played the first half with 9 players as one of the Lucan boys got injured. The second half started with 11 players and the overall performance improved and Lucan subsequently made a comeback and scored 2-01. Lucan’s goalkeeper was player of the match and made a brilliant penalty save in the second half.

Operating under Go Games rules, all of the players played in multiple positions throughout the game. Jack Keogh made a few great saves in goal in the first half while the defence of Cian O’Gara, Cian McCormick, Cian Gavin and James O’Connell made some great blocks and clearances. In midfield, Daniel Taffe and Conor Healy worked extremely hard and got forward to kick a few scores as well. In the forwards, Michael O’Brien was in great scoring form ably assisted by Patrick Cosgrove, Karl Quinn and Liam Whelan. Overall, a great display and all of the practice is really paying off for this bunch of players.
