U18 League Mooncoin Celtic 4 Tramore 2

Another three points on the board tonight after a very tough and physical game from a determined Tramore outfit .

We got off to a flyer when Emily Blackmore took a long range shot that sailed to the top left corner on the 4 minute mark . The game flowed for the next 40 minutes, with both teams having very good passages of play . Eimear Quinn was superb in defence this evening and calmly came to our rescue when the need arose flanked by Niamh , Gracie, and Kate . Backed up as always by Abbie Hassett between the posts . They made things very difficult for Tramore to break down in the first half . We had chances before the break but didn’t capitalise on any of them . Sommer and Hannah linked up very well in the middle and sprayed plenty of ball for Ciara Ross and Ella to run onto .
Both teams went toe to toe in the second half and it was deadlock between the two teams approaching the half way mark when some wonderful passing saw us work the ball up the pitch from Gracie in defence to space in the middle , where Emily set Ciara Ross up for a superb finish from a very tight angle. Tramore reacted, and some sloppy defending from us allowed them back into the game. On the 78 minute, Emily Blackmore rattled the net for a second time when she converted a free kick . But within 5 minutes, Tramore again struck back and kept themselves in the game . Up stepped Sarah Walsh to slot home to give us some breathing space, and we saw the game out on a scoreline 4-2.
