St. Cro­nan’s chalk up con­vinc­ing win

Bray People - - SPORT -


St Cro­nan’s 4-7, St Lau­rence’s 0-1: St. Cro­nan’s played some ex­cel­lent foot­ball when they de­feated a gal­lant St. Lau­rence’s team last Wed­nes­day in Grey­stones. Play­ing with a slight breeze they took the game to St. Lau­rence’s and raced into an early lead. Points from Joe Flem­ing, Shane Mol­loy and Cal­lan Casey set­tled Crow nerves be­fore Shane MacDer­mott rat­tled the net with his first goal. Cap­tain Evan Sweeney worked his socks off, took up in­tel­li­gent po­si­tions and showed great com­po­sure and skill to send over a 45m and a won­der­ful point just be­fore half time to leave St. Cro­nan’s in a com­mand­ing lead .

In the sec­ond half St. Lau­rence’s lifted their game but St. Cro­nan’s de­fence stood rock solid. Danny Magee at mid­field and Shane MacHugh in de­fence were very im­pres­sive for St. Lau­rence’s. Their goal­keeper Ai­dan Lacey brought of some ex­cel­lent saves and Louis Lawlor also stood out when he was in­tro­duced into the game.

A su­per point from Con Green and goals from Ryan Han­non, Shane MacDer­mott and Stephen Wil­son sealed vic­tory for the Crows. Best for St. Cro­nan’s on the day were Alexan­dros, Adam and Cal­lan.

St. Cro­nan’s: M. Kenny, A. Mul­doon, L. Whe­lan, J. Ah­erne, M. Myler, E. Sweeney, C. Green,I. Bracken, R. Han­non, C. Casey, S. Mol­loy, Alexan­dros, A. Dixon De­lahunty, J. Flem­ing, S. MacDer­mott, R. Purdy, L. Dut­ton, B. Clarke, S. Wil­son R. Kealy , Jack A. Walsh

Kil­coole Pri­mary School 6-05, St. Fer­gal’s 4-08: (Re­port by Kotryna Ja­sonyte and Kaitlin Daly, 5th Class, Kil­coole Pri­mary School). St Fer­gal’s trav­elled to Kil­coole for this first game in the league. The sides were evenly matched and it was a close sport­ing con­test. St. Fer­gal’s started very well and took some fine scores with good team work and were lead­ing at half time. Kil­coole came into the game in the sec­ond half show­ing great de­ter­mi­na­tion.

This never say die attitude and tena­cious de­fend­ing by Kil­lian Car­lin Han­non and Adam Cum­mins brought them back into the match. Luke Evans and Jor­dan Mur­ray worked tire­lessly in mid­field and in the for­wards Mazen Agamy and Brian Short im­pressed. St Fer­gal’s staged a come­back in a closely con­tested match but even scor­ing a penalty in the last minute wasn’t enough and Kil­coole emerged as vic­tors on the day.
