Holycross fc u/16s made their way to Brickfields to play Nenagh on Thursday evening last. Holycross dominated the first half and went so close to breaking the deadlock, Dylan Greene and Fionn Mc Cartan going close. The sides remained scoreless at the interval. The second half was a more even contest although Holycross looked the more threatening and got the goal their good play deserved, Fionn Mc Cartan on target. The home side got back on terms via the penalty spot, and when it looked like the game was heading for a draw, Nenagh snatched a late winner. Holycross will no doubt rue the missed chances during the game, but put in a very encouraging performance. Star Player, Stephen Flanagan.

Holycross fc u/14s were away to BT Harps on Friday last and came undone on a 4-1 score line, Tommy Teer on target with a fine goal for Holycross.
