Francis St. christened their new jerseys in a thrilling match at Brickfield Park this afternoon. Drimnagh took the lead early in the game but Francis Street responded swiftly with two brilliantly taken goals by Dylan. That’s three goals in two games for Dylan, a remarkable achievement for a boy in 4th class!! Just before half time the Drimnagh attacker found space at the back post to level the game.
Drimnagh started the second half strongly and took the lead with a smart finish. Some fantastic defending from Sabelo and inspired goalkeeping by Dean kept Franner in the game. Soon, Franner were level when a perfectly flighted free kick from captain Kevin was expertly volleyed home by Micheal. There were chances for both teams but unfortunately two late goals ensured victory for the hosts. Well done to all the boys involved!
