U14 Soccer - Scoil Mhuire Clane Vs Scoil Dara Kilcock

a1sx2_u14smcsvscoildarakilcock_u14_smcs_v_scoil_dara_kilcock.JPGWith our first two group games ending in a loss and a win , this was a game that was a must win in order to be in a driving position in order to get out of group A.

The boy’s professional attitude was flourishing with every game they played with some no nonsense preparation in getting ready and in the pre match warm up.

The team had three changes from its regular starting 11 , with Dan Piare and Seadhna Powers out through injury , Ryan Murran and Ciaran Kerrigan started in a central position with Rian Keating stepping into a right back position.  We’re in a very lucky position to have such a strong squad of 20 to pick from on any given day.

With the team in a huddle , they all gave each other some inspirational words and the team cheered for their school and lined up for the match. What came next was a blur. With a selection of passes from us, we lost possession and Kilcock hit us on the break , leading to a scramble in our box which left 2 of our players on the ground as they slipped which led to Kilcock gaining the first goal of the match . All in 36 seconds ! All of our players stood for 5 seconds, looked at each other in disbelief , picked up the ball and took tip. Clane responded again in such a positive manner with some good build up play that led to Dean winning the ball from the attacking third by taking on a center half and slotting home in the bottom right hand corner after his run from gaining possession. 2 goals scored in 1 minute and 56 seconds.

8 minutes in we extended our lead with a corner from Dean which just missed Stephen which led to the ball being pushed out to an oncoming Gavin Reilly who took his goal coolly with a left footed shot into the back of the net. Clane started to settle comfortably as they were encouraged to one touch pass in order to get around the heavy pitch quickly. Rian Keating was playing well in his first start for the team and pushing the ball on quickly to avoid any oncoming pressure from the opposition.  Ryan Murran and Ciaran Kerrigan were providing some much needed tackles and inviting passes to our attacking forward line. Gavin Just missed a shot that went wide in the 17th minute. Ger O’Connor was looking dangerous in the opening of the match with numerous runs side by side on the last Kilcock man. Ger scored the third goal on his 13th birthday with a pass from Ryan which allowed Ger to have a right foot finish in a tight angle which led to the shot hitting the very top right hand corner. Great Precision!

U 14 Soccer Report – Away to Piper’s Hill 29th January

a1sx2_u14smcsclane0216_u14_smcs_v_pipers_hill.JPGOur second game in our group was due to be played at home against Pipers Hill. With high levels of rain in the week leading up to the match,  A quick decision was made on our pitch and the decision was made to switch the fixture to Pipers Hill’s astro. This was an easy decision to give up our home advantage as our team were well used to training on the fast astro pitch in our own school. We arrived at 10:00 all ready and togged out and got a good half hour warm up. With the starting 11 lined up we kicked off our second match at 10:30.

Clane were quick and moved well with every pass in the opening 10 minutes. Dean O’Shea in his attacking midfield role shot 3 times from long range in an effort to get on the score sheet. The team communicated with each other by enforcing the phrase “ don’t let them out “ which allowed Clane to press with high energy to regain possession. Our first goal came in 13 minutes when the ball was played out to Ryan Burke on the right followed by some silky one touch passes between Ger O’Connor, Daniel Piare, Dean O’Shea, Ryan and then back to Ger who hit the back of the net with a right footed finish into the left hand side of the goal. “ Probably the best goal I have seen live in front of me” was a comment from one of our 5th years.

Clane pushed on again into their opposition’s half.  The 3 man midfield of Dan Piare, Ciaran Kerrigan and Dean O’Shea were passing the ball in dominant passing triangles and all were influential in the way Clane were playing. Trying to double their lead , chances fell to Ryan Burke who took on 3 players in the box only to be denied from a defender on the line. Another chance came to Gavin Reilly who took a shot from a wide left position. Ciaran Kerrigan was excellent in his tackling in midfield along with some clean neat foot work , while Dan Piare’s runs forward and through balls were causing trouble for the Piper’s Hill defense.

When 11:00 hit , Pipers hill’s supporters came out to act as their team’s 12 man. This helped with us in our previous game and it sure did help their own team on this occasion.  Our center back partnership Stephen Leavy and Alex Kilmurry had little to do during this half and on the 30 minute mark Stephen made and excellent tackle at the edge of the box to prevent a near goal when the ref blew for a penalty. Blood was boiling for our team , and Piper’s Hill’s Reece Mcloughlin  (no 9. ) converted the penalty past Eamon Little in goal. 2 minutes later, Piper’s were given another controversial free kick at the edge of the box, which was again converted into a goal from some miscommunication in the box between our defensive line along with our keeper. Loud cheers came from their support and the half time whistle was blown.

With the players in , we couldn’t believe we were 2-1 down after our chances and possession in the first half. The team got into a huddle for their own wise words of encouragement with the aim to get 2 goals in 5 minutes to extend our lead. Ger switched out to the left side of midfield and Gavin went up front in order change up our attacking line. Piper’s Hill started out strong; trying to increase their lead but crucial tackles came in from Ciaran , Alex and Stephen. Our equalizer came from a dangerous run down the left hand side from Dean where a cross was made across the box for Dan Piare to score the much-needed equaliser, 7 minutes into the second half.  2 minutes later Dean then got his chance at the edge of the box for a free kick, which he converted it by a superb strike in the back of the net which allowed us to go back in front again. We were comfortably in a 3-2 position, but we allowed Pipers Hill to get into our own third in a couple of runs with legs getting tired in midfield. Ayobami Alarape and Seadna Powers were faultless in their positions of left and right back , pushing up with the much needed attacks to keep the pressure on our opposition.

Changes were made to freshen the legs with 15 minutes left to go. Ryan Burke gave a solid display to finish off the match when moved back into right back after an injury to Ayobami . Tommy Gill went on up front alongside Rasdi Nsimba and Aidan Mooney coming on wide right. These three players had an immediate effect , all hungry to make their cause to force their way onto the starting 11.  Rasdi broke up the play in midfield , with Tommy causing some hassle up front for the defense. Aidan Mooney looked like he was playing there for the whole game as he skipped around the back of defence on 3 occasions. On the last of these occasions , Rasdi regained possession in midfield , passed it to Dean with a pass out to Aidan . Aidan took one touch and took his goal well from a tight angle from wide right that went into the top corner of the net.
