U14b Boys Cup: Tramore 4 – 3 Mooncoin Celtic

It was a trip to sunny Tramore again today for the Cup Quarter final. We started really well with Connor Walsh hitting the crossbar, Daniel hitting the post and Liam Mackey forcing a good save from the keeper but against the run of play Tramore won a free kick after the ref deemed Emmet our stand in Goalkeeper to have handled the ball outside the box.

Tramore scored from the resulting corner following the free kick being kept out.

We got back working hard and got our deserved opener from a Liam Mackey header from a delightful corner from Josh. Some how just before halftime Tramore took the lead again after a comedy of errors in our own box.

2nd half saw Tramore came out the stronger and went 3-1 up through another poor goal given away.

We had to make a few positional changes and in the last 15 mins pulled the game back with goals from Conor Walsh and Liam Mackey. We were on top and looked like we might nick the victory only for Tramore to catch us on the break in the last few minutes to send us out of the cup.

Very disappointing and frustrating for this side but Tramore were slightly better on the day. MoM in this one again is Anil Ramaswamy who is becoming a real team leader playing in multiple roles again today.
