SOCCER: Our U14s travelled to Rathkeale one point clear in the league and looking for a win to edge closer to a first ever league title for the club. Brian O’Grady gave us a great start when he drilled the ball low to the net after two minutes. Rathkeale came back into it and scored from a free kick to leave it 1-1 at the break. Our lads upped their game in the second half and Patrick Rodahan setup Brian O’Grady to make it 2-1. Patrick then crossed for Dylan Holmes to make it 3-1.The pressure was now off and we took total control and the outstanding Patrick Rodahan capped a 4-1 win with a superb strike. Earlier that morning we hosted Knocklong and Hospital in two u10 games. The first game saw us beat Knocklong 3-1 with goals from Jamie Kennedy,Conor Egan and Jake O’Riordan,all the players were excellent through out. The second game against Hospital was a real ding dong affair with both sides very even.Jake O’Riordan grabbed the only goal to give us a great 1-0 victory. Our U8s also took on Knocklong and this was a real thriller.Goals from Daire O’Connor (2) and Charlie Holmes gave us a 3-0 lead. Knocklong however came flying back and their excellent number 12 grabbed a hatrick to leave it 3-3.Evan McCarthy proved to be the hero with an excellent winner to leave it 4-3 at the end,well done to both teams. We took a bus on Sunday last to Thomond Park to see Limerick play their first Premiership game in almost 20 years.Nearly 40 children and parents enjoyed the evening,many thanks to TJ O’Dea who supplied the complimentary tickets for everyone.
