The St. Fergal’s first year boy’s football team’s season began with a blitz in Portlaoise on the 9th of October. The first game began at10:00 against Mountmellick. It was a tough match but Fergal’s came out on top, winning by a point. Their second opponents were Knockbeg. Again it was a hard game but our boys came out on top again, winning by 2 points. Next up were Mountrath (Team 1). The lads played great and fought hard but the stronger Mountrath team proved too much. Finally the last match was against Mountrath (Team 2). Again the physically stronger Mountrath boys had the edge, winning comprehensively at the end. Fergal’s had a record of 2 wins, 2losses for the day, overall, a great day with some outstanding individual plays and a tremendous team effort.
