Match Report- Mens 2nds vs TRR

4 days ago by sean cassidy 0 comments

After picking up our first win in division 3 last weekend, it was important for us to keep the momentum going. We were presented with an away trip to three rock, with injury and illness causing a few late pull outs, but we remained in confident mood before the game. Tarf started strong with good energy from the tip off and our early dominance was quickly rewarded when Matty picked up the ball on the halfway line, beat his man and drove into the D before unleashing a reverse into the far corner. TRR gradually grew more into the game as we began to sit back but we defended our D effectively without Senan having to make any saves.

After half time with Rossco's halftime instructions ringing in our ears that we had to win the battle, we once again blitzed the opposition in the opening 5 minutes of the half. First a flowing team passing move from one end of the pitch to the other led to the ball being pulled back to Nathan who gladly swept the ball home to make it 2 in 2 weeks for him. 2 minutes later, Butzy won a free on the halfway and crashed the ball up to Killer who hit a bouncing ball first time into the goal. 3-0 Tarf! We then went on to 'park the bus' for the next 30 minutes as we attempted to hold our lead. Matty was even told to run to the corner to waste time with 10 minutes to go! TRR pulled one back from a shortie but thanks to a few Senan saves and some last ditch defending from the back four, Tarf held on for a 3-1 victory. Another hard fought game where we deservedly came out on top and have now won back to back games.

A well earned weekend off next week before our next league game against Rathgar, where we will hopefully extend the winning streak to 3 games!

Mens 2nds vs Railway

10 days ago by nathan maxwell 0 comments

Quick match report from mens 2nds first win in div 3 vs railway yesterday...
Billy's men's 2s have gone from strength to strength this season with each week passing seeing us grow in confidence. After two encouraging performances against trinity and Monkstown it was important to get points on the board in our new league. Railway provided us with just the right challenge. Tarf started well but found themselves getting pinned back in the first half, a few excellent saves from Senan kept the scores at nil, when shortly before half time, an inspired botch shot from Scott off a short corner fell back to nathan on the baseline who was lucky to squeeze it past the keeper. 1-0 tarf at half time. the second half saw us pick up where we'd left off and even the introduction of billy into the action. good work from Matthew and Sean going forward led to a short corner for tarf. this time Scott made no mistake and blasted his shot into the bottom left. 2-0 tarf. the last ten minutes saw us defending deep and desperately. credit to the defense who earned their clean sheet and to the supporters who came to watch, much appreciated as always!
Next week sees us travel to Three Rock where we'll be looking for all 3 points!

Match Report - Clontarf Mens II 2 - 3 Monkstown III

17 days ago by Ciaran McNamara 0 comments

Despite losing 2-3 to Monkstown III, Clontarf Mens’ II produced a vastly improved performance from the week before showing that they are well capable of competing in the division since moving up. Elliot Hughes bundled in a corner in the early stages but the lads were pegged back by some decent Monkstown play. A couple of defensive lapses in the final few minutes of the first half meant that even though the game was evenly balanced, Clontarf trailed 1-3 at the break.

The second half bore witness to some trojan work all over the pitch from the Clontarf engine room namely Cassidy, Maxwell and O’Higgins. Richie Jones appeared to have had some extra weetabix as he ran riot, amok even, slicing and jinking his way through the heart of the Monkstown midfield time and again. His penetrative runs brought several chances in a crowded D, one of which was converted by Matty “It’s only a knock, not a sprain” Owen, to bring it back to 2-3. Evergreen Andrew Butzy Butler hit the crossbar in the last two minutes in what would have been a delightful way to tie game but, alas, it wasn’t to be and Clontarf go into week 3 looking to get points on the board, at home to Railway III.

Thanks as always to Keith Lewis for umpiring and to Monkstown for a decent and enjoyable game of hockey, and well done to our crop of schoolboys, Michael Fulham, Kev Murray and Noah Goggins who put in good shifts, showing they are at home at this level…

All support welcome next Saturday in the Bull Ring!
