The U12 SDFL team took home the Shield today at the Leixlip United pre season tournament today. The Orchard contested a very tight group that included the eventual tournament winners St Francis. Each of the group games were decided by a single goal.
Our opponents in the semi final were our old rivals St Kevins. After a nervy first half Orchard settled into their groove and ran out 3:0 winners to set up a Shield final with the hosts.
The final was a cagey affair with very few chances and finished 0:0 after extra time to set up the dreaded penalty shoot out. The penalties were of very high quality and the contest went to sudden death, however Orchard held their nerve and secured the victory. Well done lads and let's hope this sets the tempo for the coming seas.
