Easy Win For U9 Premier Boys Over Kill

Caragh Celtic 4
Kill Celtic 0

Caragh welcomed Kill Celtic to the parish field this weekend for a game that probably turned out to be Caragh’s easiest win of the season so far.

The first quarter was a scrappy enough affair where Caragh struggled a little just to find the right final pass to get in on the Kill goal. All the play took place in the Kill half of the pitch, with Conor McCall in goals and Caolan O’Toole in defence practically being spectators.

The second quarter saw Dara and Evan Gilmartin come in to fill the central midfield berths for Caragh with Cian O’Reilly moving up to striker. Caragh’s domination of possession started to produce chances now and the deadlock was quickly broken. Following a couple of close calls, Dara finally opened the scoring when he got on the end of a cross from Cian and improvised cleverly to finish with his knee.

The second goal followed soon afterwards when Dara made an opening for himself and finished to the corner of the Kill net with strong left footed shot.

Caragh extended their lead further when Cian created another chance and his cross field shot was turned in to the Kill goal by Ross Ward. Shortly afterwards Cian got the goal his performance deserved when he gave the Kill keeper no chance with his shot from just inside the Kill area, to leave the score 4-0 at the half time break.

The game was over as a contest at this stage and Caragh ended up giving a player to Kill to try and even up the game. The Caragh lads really took the foot of the gas in the second half and no further goals were score, while at the other end I don’t think Kill had a shot on the Caragh goal in the entire game.

Caragh Celtic: Michael Coffey(Capt), Dara Gilmartin, Evan Gilmartin, Daniel Hamill, Ross Ward, Cian O’Reilly, Noah Byrne, Conor McCall, Caolan O’Toole
