Boys Outdoor Soccer 2017

The St Francis Credit Union Clare Community Games boys U12 Soccer competitions were held during the week of 15th-19th May in the newly renamed Ennis Active John O'Sullivan Park at Lees Road. Nine teams took part. The standard was extremely high with some matches going to extra time & penalty shoot out. It was coordinated by Flan Brennan with his team of referees.

In the preliminary round Ballynacally/Lissycasey Black and Cratloe were nil all with at full time but but Ballynacally/Lissycasey black won 4-3 on penalties.

In the quarter finals Inch/Kilmaley/Connolly beat Ballynacally/Lissycasey Maroon 2-0. Doora/Barefield and Killaloe were 1-1 at full time Killaloe won 2-0 on sudden death penalties after extra time. Meelick/Coonagh beat Sixmilebridge/Kilmurry & Derg went down to Ballynacallt/Lissycasey Black 8-0.

Inch/Kilmaley/Connolly pipped Meelick/Coonagh for the Bronze medals on a score of 1-0.

The final was a very close nail biting game with both teams on no score at full time with Killaloe winning by the narrowest of margins after extra time & sudden death penalties score 2-1.
