The Ahane U16 Football team contested the Division 2 final on Saturday 7th against Ballylanders in Claughaun. Ahane were dealt a blow leading up to the game with the news that the 2 Peters (Donohoe and O’Grady) were unavailable due to injury and illness. However, the management team were confident the panel had a great chance of winning. The game started slowly with both teams testing each other out. Ballylanders were crowding the middle third of the field which left a large space in front of the Ahane full back line which they were hoping to exploit. However Denis Hayes, Kevin Morrissey, Aiden Carroll and ably assisted by Sam Dendickken in goals were well up for the task and kept Ballylanders at bay.  Scores were hard to come by and Ahane kept Ballylanders to 1-04 in the first half. A lot of credit for this goes to the hard work and great tackling by the Ahane team in particular Robert Magill, Adam Murrihy and Joey Ryan. Ahane were behind by 2 points (1-04 to 0-05) midway through the first half. Scores from Ahane came from Mark Donnellan 1, Ronan Fox 2 and Andrew Shanahan 2. Ahane then took charge in the middle of the field with the half backs of Conor O’Shea, Andy Rowsome and Tom Marsden stopping all attacks and setting up the forwards for some great scores. The pick of these came courtesy of Padraig Harnett who fielded a kick out and lobbed the keeper from 40 yards. Further points came from Padraig, Ronan, Andrew and Caiman Ayers.

From the re-start, Ahane took control of the game and played some very exciting football. This started with some excellent kickouts from Sam and some great link-up play throughout the field. Alan Conway, David Brennan, Tom O’Hanlon and Jack Barry came on in the 2nd half and kept the pressure on Ballylanders. Ahane scored 2-09 in the 2nd half with goals coming from Ronan and Andrew. Final score Ahane 3-18 Ballylanders 2-08. It was with great joy that captain Andy Rowsome accepted the cup from Bord na nOg Secretary Mary Hassett.

Team: Sam Dendickken, Denis Hayes, Kevin Morrissey, Aidan Carroll, Tom Marsden (2 pts), Padraig Harnett (1-01), Conor O’Shea, Andy Rowsome, Joey Ryan (0-01), Ronan Fox (1-03), Andrew Shanahan(1-03), Adam Murrihy, Caiman Ayers(0-01), Robert Magill, Mark Donnellan(0-05). Alan Conway (0-01) for Robert, David Brennan for Caiman, Tom O’Hanlon for Conor, Jack Barry for Denis, Conor Bourke, Paddy Quinn, Peter O’Grady, Peter Donohoe, Glen Jones, Mark Hickey, Conor O’Brien, William O’Leary, Sean Fahy, Billy McMahon, Brian Murphy.

Well done to all the U16 squad and management team on a great result and a big thank you to all the supporters who roared on the team in Claughan.
