The U14 lads recorded their second home win in the U14 Sketchers Cup and are now through to the 3rd Round.
In Round 1 the lads played the local lads Colga FC. This game was played in horrendous wet conditions and both teams deserve great credit in dealing with the elements. Despite early goals by the home side the visitors caused some jittery nerves with two late goals in the second half. The final score at the end was 3: 2 win for the local lads. Scores coming from Daren Darcy (Peno), delightful volley from Piotrek Szymanski and a clinical finish by Bright O’Brodericks. Credit also to Lee O’Sullivan who made a super penalty save in first half.
Last Saturday in 2nd Round the lads crafted another impressive performance beating Gurteen Celtic FC 5 goals to nil. In an entertaining game the teams went in at half time nil all. However, in the second half the strength & depth in the squad together with greater fitness levels, quickly turned the tide and the local lads ran out comfortable winners. Scores on the day coming from Charlie Cox, 2 Darren Darcy (one from peno), Piotrek Szymanski and Bright O’Brodericks.
The local lads will now play Temple Villa FC from Westmeath in the 3rd round in an away match
