Bush Celtic 1
Caragh Celtic 6
Caragh visited Bush today and came away with another good win and as with the previous few games all the damage was done in the second half.
Caragh went behind early on in this one when the Bush striker beat Cian to a through ball and finished well to open the scoring.
Caragh’s game was quite scrappy in this opening period with the lads struggling to make their passes and keep possession for any length. It looked like it might be a tough day for the boys but we managed to drag ourselves back in to the game to be level 1-1 at the half time break.
The equalising goal for us came from pure determination from Mikey. There didn’t appear to be anything on for him when in the corner with the ball but he kept on breaking through tackles and finally managed to get a shot off from a really tight angle that somehow found the back of the Bush net.
Conor Cassidy was the stand out player for Caragh in the first half with great work from him up and down the right flank.
The second half was a better performance from Caragh where they didn’t give the Bush boys a moment to settle on the ball and get their passing game going.
Ross and Daniel both continued their recent good scoring form with a brace a piece. Daniels first came from a close range header when he got on the end of a great cross from Cian, while his second came from the penalty spot in the dying moments of the game. While Ross had his shooting boots on again with the second being a powerful shot to the roof of the Bush net and going close to getting his hat-trick when had another effort that just cleared the Bush crossbar.
Caolan also popped up with another goal for himself when he finished strongly from close range following a corner.
Daire and Evan both looked very composed on the ball in the centre for Caragh and always made the right choice with their passing creating lots of chances for their team mates.
While Conor McCall in goals for the second half had quite a quiet morning, he did all that was asked of him and swept up a couple of dangerous through balls by being quick off his line.
Noah had a quieter game today than usual, but having been sick for the past few days, it was a credit to him to be on the pitch at all.
A convincing win from Caragh, the most pleasing aspect being the way the lads defended so well and limited Bush to very few opportunities.
