Murroe-Boher Community Games: Murroe-Boher Community Games:  The U13 Boys Murroe-Boher indoor soccer team claimed silver medals in Galvone last week.  The boys played Caherdavin in semi-final & despite being two goals down at halftime, they turned it around to lead 3-2 midway through the 2nd half but then lost a player and had to play on with 4 for last 9 mins but showed great courage to win 5-4 in a thriller. In the final they played a strong Cappagh team and although ahead at the break, they unfortunately lost 5-4 in another nail bitter.  A terrific effort from all the boys with all outfield players on the goal trail led by super performance & goals from captain Nathan O’Shea. The other goal scores Jeffrey O’Rourke, Mikey Walsh, James Judge, David Moloney & Joe Shanahan. The overall player of the tournament was awarded to Murroe-Boher’s fantastic goalkeeper Jamie Kirby. Some outstanding saves – well done to Jamie & his teammates.
