Championship Football


Drumquin Wolfe Tones have lifted a second youth championship title inside twenty four hours following a convincing 3-11 to 1-5 over a gallant Eskra side in the Grade 4 Championship final.

Celebrating their centenary year the Tones are currently enjoying something of a purple patch at youth football.

On Tuesday evening their minors lifted the championship title at Clanabogan and on the same pitch on Wednesday their u14 team claimed the championship after a very impressive display.

Drumquin began well with a brace of early goals from Oisin Gormley. The same player also accounted for all five of his team’s first half points as they threatened to run away with the game.

However the much smaller and lighter Eskra team refused to give in and by the end of the first half they had narrowed the gap to six with a goal from the boot of Luke Kelly and points from Kelly and the highly impressive Cormac Hughes.

The second half saw both sides play some delightful football as the huge crowd certainly got value for money. Chances were created but went abegging as both goalkeepers were called into action.

Oisin Gormley, Cormac Donnelly, Finnan Patterson and Sean Mc Menamin added points to extend Drumquin’s lead while Rory Kinsella and Kelly responded for Eskra. The Emmetts enjoyed plenty of possession in the second half but any chance they had of a late comeback disappeared when Oisin Gormley hit his third goal of the game, this time from the penalty spot, after Ciaran Mc Gale had been fouled.

Drumquin finished the game the stronger and were well deserved winners. Eskra should take a lot from the game with their quick passing and fast running game earning them many admirers on the night.

Congratulations to Drumragh Sarsfields and their ground staff for having their pitch in such fine condition for the games.
