PADDY WAGON MOTORS ON
For the second week running, Paddy McGeown of the 17s took advantage of Conaill Taggart’s absence to increase his lead further at the top of the Golden Boot table.
Paddy scored a hat trick today as the 17s swept away the opposition 8 – 2. Paddy has now opened up clear blue’n’black space over early leader Conaill Taggart of the 11s. Paddy now sits on 18 to Conaill’s 14.
Paddy McGeown, U17 Star – another hat trick. Has he
hit top form at just the right time?
Mind you, before his transfer test layup, Conaill was also in excellent shooting form in front of goals. Paddy would need to open up a much bigger gap to put Conaill off. When he returns, a battle royal will resume for control of this season’s Boot.
Conaill Taggart, U11 – in 2nd place.
He’ll be gunning for the Boot again
Before too long. Mark my words!
Two coolly taken cup final penalties from Joe Mellon means he joins under 13 teammates Ryan Creaney and Conall Breen to reinforce the under 13 stranglehold on third spot. They sit on ten goals and both Paddy and Conaill would rule them out at this stage at their peril.
Ryan Creaney, U13 – ten and
Conall Breen, U13 – the under 13s
are loving this year. Will they have
the Boot as well as the cup?
Joe Mellon, U13 – he’s now on ten
too (if you know what I mean). The
king of the cage became the prince of
the penalty on Saturday.
Conor George of 15 Star won the Boot last year and there’s no sign that he intends to give it up without a fight. He sits just one behind the under 13 troika on nine goals. Conor is joined by Sean Boyle of the 18s, who scored on Monday night and Brendan Blaney of 16 Star who netted at the weekend.
Conor George, U15 – knows how to
win it. It would be foolish to rule him
Sean Boyle, U18 – maybe he’ll
make the push, scoring regularly.
Brendan Blaney, u16 – banging them in
with gusto. Could be a dark horse.
The under 13s also hold fifth spot, with John Connor on eight goals.
John Connor, U13 – another
under 13 challenger.
