UNDER16's KNOCK 7 PAST SCRABO

Apr 11 2014 4:57 PM

The under 16's went into the first group game of the supplementary cup against Scrabo on 10/4/2014 full of confidence having beat them handily last time out. Manager Anto had asked for better finishing this time out and the boys didn't dissapoint. We started with a very attacking 3-4-3 system which had scrabo on the back foot from the word go. We were keen to put pressure on at every opportunity and that pressure by collins on 15 mins led to Tiernan doc finishing past the keeper and putting us 1-0 up. Soon after it was 2 with the brilliant Diarmuid magennis finishing expertly from the edge of the box. Scrabo had offered very little going forward and our midfield of Pearse Healy and jack mc Cullough were controlling things. Caoimhin Kelly was getting forward at every opportunity and causing trouble down the left. 

HT 2-0

The half time team talk consistedof the gaffer telling them to keep playing and take more time with their finishing. Patience would be the key. Soon after the restart magennis got his second with another great finish and then completed his hat trick moments later with a cool finish, letting the keeper dive before putting it in the corner. Changes were happening at this stage and it seemed to make us more determined to stretch our lead, Oisin collins sticking one in the bottom corner from 25 yards out. Soon Sean mc Cann was on target with a quality finish from a good ball from Marty lestrange. The scoring wasn't finished yet as Collins broke down the left, cut inside and powered home his second of the evening. That was the scoring done on a very one sided game. Well done lads..

managers comments

The lads were very good tonight and it was good to get some of the lads off the bench for some playing time. It was very easy at times and Saturday will be much harder but I believe in you. I hope you all share the same belief.. Well done guys roll on Saturday.
