Soc­cer action

THE heavy rain Fri­day saw some fix­tures again fall by the way­side last week­end. The U9s faced En­niskerry at home and put in a good dis­play be­fore go­ing down 4-0. It was 10 at half time but the young glens faded away near the end.

Man­ager Sean Con­roy has one more game v Grey­stones this week­end be­fore his con­tract is up for re­view, so go for it Sean! The 10s were away to Ark­low and kept up their re­cent good form of late with a 4-0 win.

All the goals came in the 1st half with Ga­van Ma­her (2), Aaron Fitz­patrick and Luke O’Sul­li­van all net­ting in what was a great team per­for­mance.

The 13s faced En­niskerry away and drew 33 in a great game foot­ball. The Glens started with nine play­ers but fell be­hind 1-0 mid­way through the first half. Ei­ther man­ager Paul Daly gave them Red Bull at half time or gave some talk be­cause the 2nd half saw glens rush into a 2-1 lead through Stephen Kir­win and Aaron Cahill.

Then it was En­niskerry’s turn to score twice but Stephen Kir­win coolly slot­ted in an equal­izer with vir­tu­ally the last kick of the game. Mar­cus Raf­ferty, Peter Con­roy and Stephen were the star per­form­ers in a great game of foot­ball.

The se­niors faced Round­wood away in the Wick­low Cup 1st Round and suf­fered a 5-3 de­feat. The glens did not play well in this one and found them­selves trail­ing 3-1 with 15 min­utes re­main­ing.

How­ever, when Mick Rooney and Mick Mol­loy net­ted to level mat­ters, there seemed to be only one win­ner.

The Glens piled on the pres­sure but could not get the win­ner.

They had the bet­ter of the first pe­riod of ex­tra time but Round­wood scored and then the ref­eree took cen­tre stage with a silly dis­missal of a glen­cor­mac player spoil­ing any chance of a come­back.

Dean Byrne got the other goal but this game was lost with the poor first half per­for­mance.
