A sluggish display in cold conditions
but three points secured which is main thing.
A stop start first half with both teams finding it hard to find a breakthrough until Ryan O’Grady fired a half volley to the net to send the lads in 1 up at half time. Four changes at half time freshened things up with the tempo upped a notch. Rizgar finished well to make it two before Kieran Fagan notched the third.
It could have been a lot more with Aaron McLoughlin going close a few times and Carrick’s keeper keeping the score down.
Three points secured with Jack Brennan getting man of the match with a no nonsense display at right full.

With few goals so far this season it was decided midweek to make a change to our formation and go more for a more attacking style and there was definitely a lot of entertainment at today’s game.
With the new formation we started slow with Ballyduff putting us under a lot of high pressure from the start but the defence of Ciara (C), Patrick and Eoin McGrath prevented the opposition from creating any clear cut chances. We started to settle into the game after 10/15 minutes and a long ball from midfield seen the ball drop to Iker Lopez Marcos who ran in 1on1 with the keeper and score his first goal of the season in his first start.
After going ahead less than 3 minutes later we conceded a corner switched off and left a Ballyduff player free on the 6 yard box to score an easy tap in. 1-1 at the break. After a short 2 minute half time break we conceded almost directly from the kick off. 2 minutes after going 2-1 down a shot from Iker was going wide until Emily Blackmore got to the ball controlled it and took a shot to level the game for a second time, 2-2.
After a succession of throw ins Emily made it 3-2. A long awaited return for Will Cuddihy seen him control the ball outside the box and drive a left footed shot at the keeper and into the goal to make it 4-2.
Jason and Mikey Cronin went close to adding goals in the final minutes of the game. A well earned victory and a great entertaining performance.
Player of the Match goes to Eoin McGrath who put in a solid performance at the back.
We welcome Bohemians to Ashgrove this coming Saturday 12:30 kick off, all support is welcome. Hon the Coin 🇮🇪
Leaders Seaview came and snatched three points today but the lads can be proud of their performance as they matched Seaview throughout. All Seaview had throughout was two chances, 1 from a corner in the last few minutes of the first half which was scored and the second in the last minutes of the game when we were pressing for the equaliser and we got caught on the break. Robbie Doherty could have had a hat trick today only for the Seaview keeper and the cross bar. Bad result but good performance, man of the match was a towering display from Sean Kearns.
Disappointing outcome to this game after being completely on top for the first 20 mins. It was really a game of two halves with the wind playing a big factor in both halves. We opened the scoring early with a great run from Sam Hartwell to finished past the keeper. Bohs equalised against the run of play but we scored again with another run from Sam who had the beating of the defence every time. Tom Conway was unlucky with a long range effort and Lee Freyne also. Two good balls in from the left from Tom went just passed us and unfortunately we only went in 2-1 up with the wind at our faces in the second half. Brian Dunphy, Adam Conway and Mike O’Keeffe kept pressing through the Centre however Bohs made a change in the second half and it made the difference. Mikey Cronin filled in at left back and did very well. Alex Bailey and Liam Hogan were solid again at Centre half. Denis Kinsella started upfront and despite some great efforts was unlucky on few occasions. Jake Moore saved a penalty in the second half but bohs pounced on the rebound. Aaron Fewer and Matthew Morahan came on late in the second half and played a part.. Man of the match today was Daniel Roberts who played out of his comfort zone at right back but won everything came his way. We were missing key players today which was a pity because this game was there for the taking however we will learn from it and regroup. Hard luck but a great effort.
