Under 13 Football
Ballinamere was the place to be last Friday evening for the Under 13 Football league semi-final where Tullamore played Kilcormac Killoughey. Both teams coped well with the conditions as the rain made the ball very slippy. Scoring was slow early on with Tullamore missing chances and we had to wait until the tenth minute when Jake Moore was fouled close to goal and Jack Donegan goaled from the resulting penalty. Tullamorepressed forward after this and added further scores from Jack Donegan again and Luke Duffy. The KK boys were always dangerous in possession and they finally got on the scoresheetwhen a long ball was deflected to the net to reduce Tullamoreslead. Half time came with Tullamore leading 2-2 to 1:00
The second half started at a furious pace with Tullamorefinding the net with their first attack which was immediately followed by a KK goal. Defences got on top after this and both teams had missed chances. KK really pressed hard for a time during the second half as Tullamore lost their shape for a while, but they recovered to score two late goals and ran out winners in the end on a final score of 5:03. to 2:00. This was an important victory for Tullamore as it now puts them in a league final where they will meet Edenderry. They also have a quarter final championship coming up with St. Manchans, so a lot to look forward to in the coming weeks .

Tullamore 3-5 Edenderry 2-8
Tullamore U17s opened their championship with a hard-earned draw in Edenderry on Wed 25th July. Played in very warm conditions in front of a great crowd of supporters from each side, Tullamore did well to be only three points behind on a half-time score of 2-6 to 2-3. Mid-way through the second half a brilliant Anthony Lambe penalty save kept the Blues hopes alive. Tullamore eventually levelled the game when Corey White pointed from a 30 metre free with five minutes to go.
Next up for Tullamore is Na Fianna in O'Brien Park on Wed 1st August at 7.30 p.m. and major improvement will be needed to get a good result.
