CLARE 1 def BALAKLAVA 0
Clare Goal: Deneke Donato
Best Players Clare: Deneke Donato, Royce Butler, Jakob Lalic
The U14 Clare and Balaklava teams braved a cold windy morning for the first match of the day. Both teams came out firing with some excellent passing and defense work with the ball going from one end to the other numerous times. Both teams had some excellent opportunities to score.
After some good team passing from Clare to get it into their attacking circle, Deneke was able to score, leaving the score at half time, one nil. In the second half Balaklava came out with determination. Nick was close to scoring a few times but Clares goal keeper Trinity was able to keep the ball out. The final result was Clare 1 and Balaklava 0. Well done to both teams.
