League v Passage in Ballyadam Park on Tuesday 9th May 2017
Carrigtwohill United 2 Passage 0
Scorers – Jack Horgan, Rob Adam
We came in to this game,really needing a win,after going close against mallow last week,We started well and with our first real passage of play down the right, a throw in from Jack O’Mahony to Cormac Flynn’s feet, who in turn found Jack Horgan on the edge of the box who blasted it in off the crossbar, a great finish and a good start. As the first half wore on we were competing very well in the middle of the park and created a few chances between David Rooney and Robert Adam testing the keeper, but we started to let Passage back into the game and they should have been level only for some last ditch defending from Cillian Carrol and Niall Hannigan. We settled again and saw out the first half!
We started the second half with the main objective to keep a clean sheet as we knew we would create chances as the game wore on. As passage pushed forward it left a lot of space for Carrig to exploit. First down the right through Alex Canty,and then on the left between David Folarin and Jack Horgan, but we just couldn’t find that second goal. Passage were starting to get in as well but some great saves from Darragh Desmond in goals kept them at bay. We had a great chance to go two up after a great cross from Robert Adam just evaded Ben Malito and Alex Canty. Passage had a great chance to equalise with 5 minutes remaining but some how it did not go in and Carrig had a breakaway chance after good work from Daragh Haore and Scott McCarthy found Cormac who in turn found Robert Adam who calmly rounded the keeper and slotted home to ensure the Result! A good team performance, and a stepping stone for a quarter final appearance in the John Cooke Cup!
