Comhghairdeas to the Kildangan Under 12 team who qualified for the South Board division 3 final last night. They did it the hard way against local rivals Ellistown and only scraped through in extra time following a tense, exciting encounter.

Ellistown hit the ground running and built up a ten point lead against the young Kildangan side. Kildangan slowly got to grips with the game and helped by a goal on the stroke of half time reduced the deficit to six points at the break. 

Further scores during the second half gave Kildangan hope, but with normal time almost up a three point deficit remained. However Kildangan were not finished-on the stroke of full time a last minute Kildangan goal the lifeline they needed to take the game into extra time. 

The momentum was now with Kildangan and they saw out the game in extra time with a two point win; Kildangan 3:08 to Ellistown's 2:09

Two very talented teams, both can be proud of the way they represented their clubs. Well done to the teams and mentors.

The final is fixed for Sunday 20th May, Venue and Time TBA
