Whitegate V Knockraha
On Wednesday the 25th of Sepember, Whitegate N.S played Knockraha N.S in Aghada GAA.
Throw in was at 11 o'clock. The game started slowly, but suddenly, the ball was played out wide to Éanna. He ran in and put the ball in the back of the net.
Then the game started to pick up the pace a bit. Two points went over the bar and the referee blew the whistle for half time.
Ms Hyde had a chat with the players and they were all ready to go again.
The referee blew the whistle and the game was back on.
But almost straight away they got a point.
Then they got a goal. They were one point behind! Whitegate now decided it was game on.
Cillian and Senan started sending the balls over the top of the defenders so Ewan and Shay could get them and score.
Whitegate just kept doing that and Knockraha started to get annoyed so they started to play a bit "physical". They gave away a lot of frees and Whitegate used the frees to score points.
Now it was nearing the end of the game. A few seconds later the referee blew the whistle for full time. Whitegate won 3-8 to 1-2!
It was the first time we had got into the semi-finals in 14 years!Everyone was really happy.
We are looking forward to playing Tirelton N.S in the semi-finals on the 2nd of October in Killmicheal.
