Moore Kearney 2)
Saturday,6th November 2004
of football was served up on the Oscar Traynor Road in this first leg of the
NDSL,Under 9 Cup for A and B divisions. Both sides went close in the first two
quarters with Patrick Rocca see his
shot just shave the post and ‘keeper Eoin Sweeney stopping several shots from
the home side.
always looked like the side to open the scoring. Just after half-time,a break
down the left flank by Eoghan O’Dunuchu created a chance for Philip
Fitzpatrick in front of goal. After jinking through the Woodlawn defence, Philip
was taken down outside the ‘box and a free was awarded. He hit a screamer over
the wall and into the top of the net.
the final quarter, Castleknock increased their dominance and had several chances
to score. Passing was the name of the game and all players deserve credit for
the part they played in this victory. A culmination of passes ended up with Ryan
Moore Kearney being fouled on the edge of the box. A wall was set up but Ryan
hammered a shot to the side of the wall to score on the near post.
replied with a pile driver from 30 yards that was unstoppable…a wonderful
goal. With 5 minutes to go, a couple of tactical changes were made by David
Fogarty. It was from one of these players, Dan Ring who turned defence into
attack with a precise through-pass to Tom Fogarty. Tom passed on to Ryan who
beat a few players to score a rasper to complete the scoring.
weather would not encourage people to come out and support the team but there
was a great turnout of Parents, family and friends. It was heartening to see
Danny Byrne’s Dad, Neil, return,……back on his feet after being out for 4
months with a broken leg.
