The TYs started with a strong side. Shaun McCarron caused trouble for the ageing legs of the teachers. Luke Davy was a standout player in the first half. Sam Bogan played very well for the teachers and held the ball well. The teachers got off to an early lead. However, as the game continued, they began to drop off the pace as their fitness was tested. Going in at half-time, the TYs looked better despite being quite far behind.
At half-time, I talked to David McGonigle who said “We are unstoppable going forward. However, it’s the simple things we’re messing up. I think we have a chance to win this game. It’s there for the taking!” I asked him, “Are there any leaders in this team?” “Yes…I am!”, he said. “I inspire everyone around me.” (He was subbed at half-time.) He noted that the standout players in the first half were Robert Mullally, Tony Meehan and Adam McFeely.
As the second half started, the TYs looked better with Shane Owen causing trouble. As a corner-forward, he instantly scored a goal, followed by a point. The supporters behind the goal sang “Shane Owen’s on fire…Your defence is petrified!” He continued to cause mayhem. His teammates had this to say…”He’s a legend!”…“It’s simple math. Give the ball to Shane and he will score.” (Meanwhile…) The game ended with the teachers winning; Sam Bogan scored one final goal to add to his tally, ensuring that he walked away with the Top Goalscorer Award. His final goal came from David McGonigle giving the ball away. David really let his team down with that one. (Never mind the fact that the Teachers were leading by about 25 points at that stage…) If the game would have lasted just a little bit longer, there’s no doubt in my mind that the TYs would have won. You have to keep in mind that the Teachers couldn’t put forward a full team and had to use senior pupils. The TY pupils ran to Shane Owen after the final whistle and lifted him high above their heads, as he is a true force of nature. I asked him for a few words after the game, but he said he didn't want to talk about it...Hero!
