Franner were denied a place in the Dublin final after narrowly losing to St. Malachy’s after extra time. Franner started slowly but gradually came into the game and Kane was denied by some brilliant goalkeeping from the Malachy’s netminder. The sides went in level at half time. The second half was a tight affair but with ten minutes remaining the Malachy’s midfielder found some space on the edge of the box and he duly broke the deadlock with a fine strike into the bottom corner. It was almost 2 0 to Malachy’s only for a remarkable saving tackle from Trevor who was simply outstanding at the back. The game looked all over but the Franner boys never gave up and a stunning left footed strike from Mikey in the last minute leveled the tie. A towering header from a corner in extra time ended Franner’s final dream. The boys have had a brilliant season and the whole school is proud of them. Thanks to all the parents who came out to support the team and a huge thanks to Paul and Gerry for all their help with sport in our school.
