CLERIHAN SCHOOLBOYS FC
U10A LEAGUE CAHIR PARK 3 CLERIHAN 5
The U10s continued their good form in Cahir and remain unbeaten after another impressive performance. Aiden Maher gave Clerihan the ideal start when he fired a wonderful left-footed shot to the net within two minutes. Clerihan went on to dominate the first half and goals from Cathal O’Mahoney , Micheal Quinlan and Ciaran Moroney ensured a comfortable 4-0 lead at half-time. The second period was more competitive as Cahir pushed on in search of goals and they got their reward with two good goals as the game drew to a close. Cathal O’Mahoney scored a trademark screamer to increase Clerihan’s lead before the home side had the last word with a third goal. The standard of football was very good with both teams doing their utmost to retain possession and build from the back. The difference was probably the tremendous work-rate of this Clerihan squad , which makes it difficult for opponents to find enough space to do too much damage. Both Jack Fitzpatrick and Scott O’Connor deserve a special mention for their solid and composed defending.
All other games involving Clerihan teams , namely U12, U14 and u16 were postponed due to waterlogged pitches following the heavy downpour on Saturday morning.
