Under-15A CSL Div 6
24th Sept 2022 at The Glebe
Coachford – 2
Carrigtwohill – 3
The u15A had an early start on Saturday morning having to travel to Coachford for a 10am kick off. The weather was great and the lads were looking forward to the game after their last game was cancelled.
The lads started the game with great hunger and were putting the Coachford defence under some pressure. This pressure paid off on 9 mins when Charlie converted Darragh’s corner to go 1-0 up. It would be 2-0 on 13 minutes when Adam finished well.
It wasn’t all Carrig’s way and Kane was called upon to make a great save to keep us on top. For the rest of the half the back four Ben Mc, Elijah, Darragh and Liam dealt with any threat Coachford had. Divine and Liam C were battling to get control of the midfield while Franek and Martin were a threat on the wings.
In the second have both sides pushed for the all-important next goal and Carrig needed the fresh impetus from Dylan, Mantas, John and Lewis who put is a massive amount of work.
On 60 mins Coachford were awarded a penalty which was covered well to set up a really exciting final 10 minutes. Both sides were pushing to score next. Right at the death on 70mins Adam broke free and smashed home his second goal of the day to make it 3-1 and take the pressure off the lads. There was still time for a twist in the tale and Coachford pulled a goal back a min later to make it 3-2. Thankfully for Carrig that was nearly the last action of the game and the lads were delighted with a deserved win.
Super performance from the whole squad today, everyone played their part. Player of the match has to go to Adam, not just for his 2 goals, his hold up play and work rate were excellent today. Well done lads.
