WSFL Under 14C League Mooncoin Celtic 1 vs St Paul’s 2

Tough fixture for the under 14s today. We came up against a very strong St. Paul’s side. Good football in both halves by both sides saw an end to end game. Some strong defending was needed by us as St.Pauls attacked us at every opportunity. Ciara O’Keeffe was very solid playing a sweeper role and Alex Bailey and Mikey Cronin held their lines well to protect her. Daniel Roberts and Conor Dermody gave energy to the defence.. a midfield of Adam Conway, Tom Conway, Sam Hartwell & Lee Freyne broke down St Paul’s on a good few occasions and for parts of the game we were in control. Brian Dunphy player upfront as a lone striker.. Mike O’Keeffe and Eoin O’Callaghan came on to add more drive… Matthew Morahan and Aaron Fewer were other substitutes today. St Paul’s scored just before half time to get on top and we were on the back foot from there. They added a second mid way through the second half… we started creating chances and should have added one. But luck wasn’t on our side. Lee Freyne equalized from the spot but there was no time left to add another… performance wasn’t up to our normal standards but we will bounce back… player of the match was Ciara O’Keeffe
