U12 Westmeath - Athlone GAA v The Downs

On a sunny June evening our u12 team headed east to Mullingar for a game versus The Downs. Depleted in numbers due to Community Games, holidays and injuries, 14 lads togged out and give it their all in an extremely competitive and sporting game. The sides were tied at half-time at 2-5 apiece, with the Athlone goals coming from Ben Murray and Luke Nicholson. 3 quick goals by the Downs mid-way through the second half seemed to have killed off the game but Athlone rallied and never gave up kicking 8 points in a row to bring the game back within our grasp. Unfortunately it wasn't to be and the lads fell short by 1 point on a score-line of Athlone 2-17 - The Downs 6-6. This was a super performance from a great bunch of players and they should be very proud of themselves.

Team and scorers. Kyle Greene, Cillian McGowan, Cian Dolan, Shane Wheatley (0-2), Josh Baine (0-1),  Ian Rushe, Lorcan McCormack (0-1), Kyle Mahon, Darragh Lough, Tiernan Mitchell (0-6), Ben Murray (1-1), Brandon Varszegi (0-1), Luke Nicholson (1-5), Boris Zhang.
