U15 Cup Result: Mooncoin Celtic 3 Bohs B 2

An absolute thriller of a cup tie was played in breezy Ashgrove this evening with a semi final spot at stake.
A dream start by the lads through a Kieran Fagan goal after 5 minutes had them in coast mode but no Bohs side will lie down and the lads from Poleberry came back and equalized and then deservedly took a 2-1 lead going in at half time.
With their season on a knife edge, stern words at half time riled the lads up but Bohs set out their stall to hold on to the lead and the boys could only muster half chances one after another. With 10 minutes remaining, disaster struck with Bohs being awarded a penalty for a handball but the gods were looking down on us this evening when the penalty whistled wide.
Back came the boys and with everything being thrown at a resolute Bohs defence it didn’t look good. One minute into injury time an absolute cracker from Kyle Kennedy from all of 30 yards drew the sides level and most likely extra time would be required but in the 4th minute of injury Ryan O’Grady with another cracker from 20 odd yards broke Bohs hearts and sent the watching crowd and bench wild with delight. Heart stopping stuff but a great advertisement for Schoolboys football. Men of the Match must go to the injury time goalscorers, Ryan and Kyle.
A semi final awaits against newly crowned league champions St Paul’s in a couple of weeks once the junior cert exams are finished.
