National Cup v St Mary’s A in St Mary’s Park on Saturday 17th September 2016
St Mary’s A 2 Carrigtwohill United 3 AET
Scorers – Mark O’Connor 2, Adam Rooney.
We started well but leaked a goal after 12 minutes against the run of play. We responded with a rocket of a goal from Adam Rooney followed by one from Mark O’Connor to lead 2-1 at half time. St Mary’s were awarded a soft penalty in the second half to equalise at 2-2.
Carrig were well on top after this but could not find the net. St Mary’s could not cope with the neat play from Carrig and eventually Mark O’Connor snuck a winner in extra time.
Great team performance including subs Dave Williams, Joshua Ryan & Cody Cunningham. Keeper Cameron Kenefick made some excellent saves in the game to keep St Mary’s out.
The defence was excellent with Liam Moore at right back and Tom Savage in the middle who had his best game yet for the team. Adam Rooney was superb in the middle again , Mark O’Connor played his best game this season as did Eric O’Sullivan on the left wing. Keelan O’Brien did well both at centre forward and on the right wing.
Well done lads.
Player of the Match – Tom Savage.
