Subway SFAI U/12 Munster Semi Final
Limerick Desmond (0) 0
Waterford (0) 2

Hard luck to the team & management as they came out on the wrong side of the result against a strong Waterford side in UL last Sunday. It was scoreless at half time and it wasn’t until midway through the second half that Waterford took the lead and went on to score a second five minutes later to seal the win. Waterford were just that bit more physical than our lads in the day. Well done to the players & management on reaching the semi final after topping their group. This was a great achievement for the squad on their first year out in competitive football.
