Cup semi finals are a nervy affair and when its a visit to your near neighbours even more is at stake.
Thursdsy evening saw us take the field in Kildalton. The 1st half was an even affair with both sides wrestling for control.
We had the best of the play and restricted Piltown to a long ball game. We played some nice football and it payed dividends when Robbie finished from close range to see us in front .
The lead only lasted for a few minutes as Piltown equalised from a corner. We hit the front just before the break as some fantastic work by Robbie saw him loft a beautiful ball onto the head of Marti and we hit the break 2.1 up.
We had a strong wind at our backs for the second period and we pinned Piltown back for the majority of the half. A fantastic run by Aidan resulted in a right footed shot low to the net from a tight angle.
From here on in there was only one winner from here as Robbie added a second after a mistake in the Piltown defence , followed by an Aidan header. The match was reaching a conclusion when a fantastic run by Liam had him beating 3 players and hitting and hitting a rasper only to see it saved with Jimmy showing quick reflexes to strike from close range shooting high into the net.
A fantastic squad performance sending us through to next weeks final against the winners of Tramore & Ballyduff.
We are heading into our last game of the season with the double in sight with the league already captured.
Goals : Robbie x 2, Aidan x2, Marti, Jimmy.
Mom: Aidan who turned the game on its head and Jimmy with his all round attitude tonight and all season.
Special mentions to Marti, Robbie & Canice .
