Sunday, the 21st of February, marked my first match out after doing a couple of weeks of fitness training. Going into the match I felt confident from the prior training and effort I put into trainings and my fitness leading up to our first match. We were heading to the west of limerick to take on a team called Kileedy in the first round of under 21s 13 aside championship. Unfortunately the home team came out on top in the end. In the first half we had a strong wind in our favour but unfortunately we didn’t play to our potential, we didn’t use the wind and we didn’t take the chances that were given in the first half. At half time we were in the lead by 5 points with a score line of 1-8 to 0-6. Straight away we conceded 1-3 within the first 10 minutes of the first half. We kept on going. Scoring points and answering all there questions. We had a chat at half time and our manager told us to keep up the work we had done in the first half. But then the turning point of the game came when one of our best players got a straight red card for an off the ball incident. We battled on as much as we could but kileedy used the extra man to their advantage and added an extra goal and couple more points. In the end kileedy ran out as winners with a Scoreline of 1-12 to 3-11. It was a very disappointing match in the end. Going forward however, the match marks a place for us to work from. With the right training and effort from the whole team I believe we are able make a comeback.
