St. Columbans 4 Castleknock Celtic 1
Muriel McCrory Cup
Semi Final Replay
Saturday, May 14, 2005
looked in anticipation at the prospect of getting into the top Under 9 Cup Final
next weekend, but alas it was not to be……….don’t count your chickens and
all that…….They were well beaten by a strong, skillful St. Columbans from a
higher division. It was 2 nil for the home side at half-time. Castleknock dug
deep and pulled one back with a cross from Phillip Fitzpatrick to Ryan Moore
Kearney who slotted it home. Celtic appeared to have the Saints rattled with
great work in midfield from Dan Ring, Tom Fogarty and up front from the tireless
work of Ryan.
St Columbans broke clear and punished Celtic with two quick goals. In the final
quarter, Phillip hit the crossbar a couple of times and Ryan and Tom went close.
To say the team were disappointed is an understatement. But, what pleasure they
have given all their followers throughout the season. Two of the team were
carrying groin strain injuries into the game. Let this be a lesson learnt and
build on it going forward.
