Castleknock Celtic 5 Raheny Utd 1
6/10/02 Brenfer U-12D
Convincing win for the home side in Porterstown. Sporting their Motorvalue - sponsored gear, they were always on top in this mid-autumn game.
Castleknock got off to a flying start with a goal in the opening minute from Neal Maycock who bravely slid in to finish a fine move down the right. This early break settled the home side who totally dominated the game and played some beautiful flowing football in the process. Solid defence, a strong battling midfield and clinical finishing brought to score to 5-0 at half-time, with a quick-fire hat-trick from man-of-the-match Ricky Flanagan, and a sweetly struck 25-yarder from Christopher Hoey.
With the game in the bag, the same spark wasn't there in the second half and
the visitors from Dublin 5 finally got the consolation goal their efforts
deserved about 10 minutes from the end.
