Under 10B team celebrated their first home match in style with a powerful
performance against local rivals, Huntstown. It was not long before Kieth
Farrell notched up the first of his goals. It started with Eve Farrelly winning
the ball in midfield, passing to Jack Kennedy who laid a lovely ball off to Keith.
His shot was too hot to handle. The ball was only parried by the keeper and went
over the line. Jack and Kieth exchanged passes for his second. Two nil at
was really on fire today and he completed his hat-trick just after the break.
McCabe came on after 20 minutes and immediately made his presence felt in
midfield with clever distribution and hard tackling. Ronan received the ball
outside the box from a long pass by Kieth and hit a stinging shot past the
‘keeper. Huntstown replied with their only goal. Ronan cleared the ball out of
defence to Senan Warnock, who buried it into the top of the net. Eve was trying
to get her name on the scoresheet and she ran at the defence and beat three
defenders but her shot was saved by the ‘keeper. The ball came out to Ronan
who slipped it to Eoin Newman and he completed the scoring for number six. It
was a wonderful team performance and played in great spirit by both teams.
this early stage in the season, the team are gelling together very well and they
all gave 100% effort. Compliments must be paid to the management team. It was
plain to see that the coaching in mid-week was paying dividends.
