Great wins for 2 smallish clubs and testament to the work they are doing at juvenile level.
Looking at coldly I agree in part with comments about the league. Some big clubs know what they have to do to survive and it does give smaller clubs the chance to claim a big scalp or two. Which I think is good for the club scene (from our point of view).I know as a life long Maurs man we as a club are very proud to be at the "top" table as I am sure Harps are. Our juveniles see the best club players in Dublin up close and see their next door neighbours and cousins and friends playing against them.
From what I saw last evening Vincents came to win without Connolly, Carthy and and 2 others. Mind you their replacements didnt look out of place.
Vincents looked like they were going to run away with this game and were quite sharp. They moved very well and Ger Brennan, Gavin Burke, Nathan Mullins were excellent and Mossy still class.. Maurs seemed a little nervous? and found it hard to break Vincents back line but in fairness played some good ball and hit a few good points from Conor Maguire and Jack Burke. Maurs goaled just after half time to cut Vincents lead to 3 but Vincents nailed 2 quick points and looked comfortable. Maurs with Carthy, O'Reilly and Maguire hit a few good points to level with 5 minutes to go. This was followed up with a brilliant move that saw Maguire score a goal to put ahead 2.12 to 1 ..12. Vincents got a point but Maurs saw out the remaing 2 minutes
