THE Sean O’Ma­hony’s/Dow­dall­hill U13s were well beaten in their county fi­nal on Wed­nes­day night in atro­cious con­di­tions in a wet and windswept Darver. The Glyde Rangers/Sean McDer­motts/Westerns/St Mochtas combo got off to a great with the gale on their backs and the Dun­dalk lads could not get the goals needed to get back into the game, try as the might. The rain and strong wind pe­tered out some­what just be­fore half time and but by then the com­bi­na­tion led by 3-6 to 2 points. At the start of the se­cond half the boys from the Quay did have plenty of at­tempts at goal but only one green flag was raised as the op­po­si­tion’s crowded goal­mouth some­how kept them a bay. As the se­cond half wore on the, the lads from west Louth’s phys­i­cal size, age and greater op­tions from the bench told, and they kicked some great scores to leave a fi­nal score of 5-11 to 1-2.
