WSFL Under 15C League Mooncoin Celtic 1 vs St. Paul’s 1

Shared points today in absolute awful conditions. Both teams were well matched and it was end to end stuff. We started off the strongest making a few chances that we should have taken. We were knocking on the door until an own goal by a St. Paul’s defender gave us the lead. Some really good performances on the day. Sam Hartwell as the lone striker didn’t get as much chances as he would like but gave it his all. Adam Conway is making the right wing his own. Stephen Foran started on the left hand side and almost broke though on two occasions. The midfield three of Alex Bailey, Lee Freyne and Diego Blanco Ibanez were constantly on the hunt for goals and were involved in everything. Ciara O’Keeffe was excellent at right back and Denis Kinsella had a really steady game at left back. Our central defence was on Top it it’s game with Tom Conway getting involved in everything. Conor Dermody’s first game at Centre back earned him Man of the Match today. He broke down two certain goals with his quick pace. Jonah O’Toole is really progressing in the goal. Mikey Cronin came on and added freshness to heavy legs. Second half we introduced Matthew Morahan who was unlucky not a get on to a loose ball. Dylan Conway came on in midfield and played well giving another option to there. A game we probably should have taken but we can’t argue with the point and sharing the spoils with a very good St. Paul’s team. Many thanks to the lads in St. Paul’s for great sport and the teams showing great respect to each other. Well done everyone.
