Last wed the 21st Nov saw the Castlecomer primary schools Gaelic Football team play Mooncoin NS in the county semi final.The team having won all there group matches plus there quarter final were confident going into the match.
Kicking into a strong wind in the first half they got off to a slow start and were behind 1 .1 to a point in the first 5 minutes .These lads though found there rythym and composure and settled quickly scoring a wonderful first goal with great link play which started from deep in defence. The first half produced Â a tough brand of football from both sides with it proving to be the comer boys toughest match so far. Comer slowly clawed there way back into the match with strong defence, fluent link play and great finishing to eventually take control of the match to lead by 4 points at half time.
With the job only half done and realising the wind wasnât going to do it for them they knuckled down and produced a second half of some quality.Disciplined defence,great attacking play and commitment to each other saw comer start to win more and more possession and pile on the scores to eventually win 6-5 to 2-4 to qualify for the county final.
This will be played on Sat 1st Dec in Nowlan Park at a time to be decided. We would urge all parents,family members,friends and classmates from junior infants to sixth class in the Boys NS, Firoda and Wandesforde schools to come along and support the team on Sat the 1st Dec.
