In Mick Neville Park on Thursday, November 11, Shanagolden NS won the West Schools Division 4 Football title, with a very exciting win over an excellent Feenagh NS team.
Playing with the aid of the breeze in the first half, we were a little slow out of the blocks and Feenagh struck for two early goals. However, we worked ourselves back into the game to leave the half-time score, Shanagolden NS 0:3 Feenagh NS 2:1.
Down on the scoreboard and facing into the strong wind, everyone put their shoulders to the wheel and with all showing a “never say die” attitude and no little skill, we outscored a gallant Feenagh NS team to be victorious on a final scoreline of Shanagolden NS 1-8 to Feenagh NS 2-1.
Matthew Nestor lifted the cup for a panel who trained extremely hard since early October and represented themselves, their families and their school with great distinction. Well done to all!!
