Aughnasheelin finished their underage year on a high when their Under 16 team scored a comprehensive win over Aughavas in the 11-a-side Championship Final at the beginning of November, winning 9-9 to 1-4.
The scoreline tells its own story. Aughnasheelin had far too much strength and skill against a small but game Aghavas side. The game was over as a contest by half time with Aughnasheelin leading by 6-8 to 0-2.
Aghavas had willing players in John Finnegan, Fintan Gallogly, Eoin Kenny and Seamus Sweeney but the power and pace of Conor Cullen, Philip Dolan, Fintan Fitzpatrick, Jack McGirl and Ryan Cull was too much for them to overcome.
Try as Aughavas did they just could not get through the Aughnasheelin defence. Scorers
