WSFL Under 14C League Mooncoin Celtic 5 vs Piltown B 0

Brilliant performance from the team today in very wet and mucky conditions. We started from the off today with a plan that was well worked in training during the week. We applied the pressure straight away and keeping the short passing movement which had Piltown on the back foot from the off. We had 11 players today due to illness and all 11 were fantastic. Emily Blackmore doesn’t fear any call up to any level and caused the Piltown defence a nightmare with her quick movement, thinking and passing. She supplied an excellent pass for Sam Hartwell to open the scoring after a fine run. Eoin O’Callaghan playing a new role in central midfield is getting better every game and was instrumental in the performance and linked the passing all day. He latched on to a ball from Tom Conway to score our second. Liam Hogan and Ciara O’Keeffe were solid as a rock at Centre half and left very little passed them. The communication between the two is a joy to watch. Alex Bailey played on the right hand side and was excellent defending and attacking he created chances and won every ball going back. Mikey Cronin at left back didn’t put a foot wrong all day and cleared the ball every time linking brilliantly with Tom Conway on the left wing who beat the defenders with every move to cause a lot of problems passing the ball across the defence. Lee Freyne in central midfield was involved in everything and gave a sublime pass to Sam to get his second goal. Lee controlled the midfield. 3-0 at halftime. Piltown came out much stronger in the second half and had a few chances but our new goalkeeper Adam Conway had other ideas and a clean sheet and attitude to take the job in the first place to help his team won him man of the match today! Our next goal was a goal fit to win any football match a long ball down the pitch see Eoin O’Callaghan latch on to the put the ball into the top corner from 30 yards out.A goal to remember for Eoin.. Daniel Roberts played upfront and was involved in everything we did going forward. We finished off proceedings with another great finish for Sam Hartwell for his hat trick when he finished to the top of the net. Brilliant performance from everybody. Nice to get back to winnings ways. Well done
