Mens’ 2nds 6 – 2 Railway 3rds (AP x 3, Butzy, Ciller, Darragh O’Brien)

11 days ago by Ciaran McNamara 0 comments

The Mens’ 2nds continued their bright start to 2015 with a very mature display in a cold Railway Union. The approach and comportment of every individual in the squad was very impressive given that the preparation for the game was disrupted due to a late pitch inspection. The pitch was deemed playable despite the cold overnight temperatures and Clontarf took to the surface like ducks to (frozen) water. The first half was cold but bountiful for an energetic & cohesive Clontarf team who took control, moving the ball around nicely. A couple of early short corner opportunities went a-begging for the ‘tarf but the pressure eventually resulted in deftly deflected goal for AP, his first of three on the day. The more corners we got the more they were firing correctly and AP was on the money again shortly after making it 2-0 at the break.

This writer can confirm that RUHC do indeed use salt water in their water cannons as during the half time talk our hosts kindly turned on said cannons without warning, leaving us huddling for shelter in the dugout.

Clontarf made quite a flat start to the 2nd half and RU created a couple of more dangerous attacks. Their momentum was defused however by debutant Fionn winning a corner which was blocked on the line by a Railway foot. AP finished the resulting stroke nicely to make it 3 on the day for him. And 3-0 to the ‘tarf. 3 became 4 soon after via either Butzy or Ciller and RU pulled one back in between Darragh scoring a nice 5th, his first for the team. There was time for 2 more goals and the final score was 6-2 to Clontarf, leaving us 3rd in the Div 3 table with 10 games played.

Well done to Darragh O’Brien who scored his first goal for the team – his new found fame will not doubt earn him a one word moniker in the near future and also to Fionn who looked assured in his debut at this level. Next week sees a week off due to the 1sts playing in the IHT in Portrush.

Mens 2s 3:1 Mullingar

18 days ago by Ciaran McNamara 0 comments

Match report from Mark Gorman:

A new year: a fresh opportunity to build some momentum and build on some positive results in 2014. Elliot warned us that a toothless display would leave us with a significant gap to make up on the leading bunch. Early positive play was rewarded when the ball was worked in from the right touchline to Poynter at the top of the circle. A quick shot and we were 1-0 up. A quick break from the 'gar led to their only goal of the game. Superiority was restored by Butzy leaving us with a 2-1 lead at the break.

Mullingar came out determined in the second half to make up the difference. Unfortunately, the only difference they made was to Lorcan's account with the tooth fairy. Hope you're doing ok, Lorcan.

A late winner from Killer wrapped up matters with several minutes to spare. The ball was sent across the circle from the left to back post where every player bar Killer was surprised to see it get all the way through to him.

Particular mention should go to Darragh and Shane who played extremely well, holding the ball up, laying off passes and taking on the experienced Mullingar defence with success.

A great start to the new year. Looking forward to Railway and Three Rock Rovers in the coming weeks.
