UNDER 14 SOCCER
ON Wednesday, October 15 our under14 team travelled to Greystones to play St David’s. St Brendan’s started slowly and went behind on 10 minutes but despite this setback St Brendan’s picked themselves up and started to play some great football. On 15 minutes Nathan O Rourke struck for St Brendan’s to level matters, Brendan’s never looked backed from there and went ahead not long after through striker Sergio Garcia, and at half time Brendan’s went in 2-1 up. After the restart Brendan’s continued to press forward and doubled their lead through the impressive midfielder Dylan Hayes. However St David’s didn’t let their heads drop and had some good efforts kept out by Brendan’s keeper Aaron Power.
However they finally pulled one back to make it 3-2 Brendan’s continued to play excellent football and thus paid off as Sergio Garcia scored his 2nd and 3rd goals to make it 52 to Brendan’s. In the closing stages Dylan Hayes and Sam de Souza scored to give Brendan’s an astonishing 7-2 win.
This was a good all round performance from the squad as all the squad saw action, hopefully the team can build on this win and through the leadership of Captain Conor Mc Crossan push on to top of the group.
Team: A. Power, S. Cox, J. Mc Namara, C. Mc Crossan(c), B. O’Donnell, K. Broughlan, D. Hayes, E. Stokes, S. De Souza, S. Garcia, N. O Rourke, A. Mulvey, J. Harris, R. Doyle, J. Carr, L. O’ Donnell.
Soccer Brendan’s reached the under 16 quarter final with a convincing home win against a weakened Killians side. The first half was a close match with only Cian McGoldricks goal separating the teams at half time. Brendan’s though started to dominate in the second period and quick goals from captain Hughie Douglas and Eoin Boyle made the game safe before substitute Sullivan completed the score.
