Colemanstown A 0; West Utd. 1
This was a game of 2 halves with West completely dominating the first and Colemanstown the 2nd. West pounced on 20 mins with a well taken effort but they were made to fight all the way in the 2nd half by a determined Colemastown side who are fighting fiercely to avoid the drop to Division 1. Chances fell to Ray Moran, Ritchie Lally, & Kerrill Hardiman but none of them were able to find the net. West held out for the win and so a valuable loss for Colemanstown.
Under 12’s: Colemanstown 7: Crumlin 0
Our under 12’s took this game by the scruff of the neck and ran out comfortable winners over Crumlin. Kieran Dowd started the riot with an early goal followed by the lethal Lorcan Molloy and a first goal of the season from left back Ronan Carr with a well taken header for a tonic goal. In the 2nd half, Lorcan Molloy got 2 more to claim his hat-trick while Keith Murphy & Paul Lally also found the net. Gerard Warde, Dylan Kelly, Brian Connolly & Ronan Carr were rock solid in defence and rarely put a foot wrong all day while Keith Connell in goal was rarely troubled.
Under 14’s Colemanstown 2: Maree/Oranmore 5
Our under 14’s lost their first game of the season to a stronger, more physical Oranmore outfit. Colemanstown had a disastrous start when they conceeded 3 early goals. Following some tactical changes by the management, Colemanstown upped their performance and were rewarded when Alan Fahy lobbed the keeper from distance prior to the interval. In the 2nd half Colemanstown continued their battle to get back into the game but were caught on the break & conceeded yet another goal. This was a harsh blow to the Colemanstown youngsters but they battled on & Andrea O Farrell scored to make it 4-2. Johnny Lally then hit the woodwork from a trademark free kick as we pressed forward on every opportunity. They were caught again near the end when Oranmore turned the screw with yet another goal. Daragh Kelly & Chris Sheridan were the pick of the defence while Thomas Broderick in goals, saved a few more blushes.
