Match Report

After a couple of weeks away from football, a competitve game is exactly what the kids needed. Ash made some terrific saves in the first half – one of them was followed immediately by a goal at the other end after quick thinking by Connor to put Riley away on the break. 3-2 down at half time and the Coach asked everyone to work extra hard at defence in the second half as we were over-committing players forward in the first. What a performance in the second half – Kieran scoring his first goal of the season, Kane making some great saves and only letting one goal in right at the end of the half. A training ground move with Maeve running down the wing, looking up and crossing beautifully for Riley…who got his foot to it and put it just wide of the post. James and Arwen broke up the oppositions play all game. Finlay was consistent as ever and chipped in with his usual goal a game. Ash scored a cracker, running past two defenders and striking the ball sweetly with his left boot. Best performance of the year kids.
