The boys first year soccer team headed north this morning to face De La Salle, Dundalk. The long trip proved fruitful almost immediately as CC struck three times early on in the first half leaving the lads from the Wee County scratching their heads. A brace from Luke Kehir, who tormented his markers all day and a neat finish from playmaker Matthew O'Hara doing the damage.
Despite the scoreline flattering us a little at the interval, apart from hitting the bar, Dundalk never seriously threatened our goalkeeper Alex Kearney's net following the restart. Indeed, our lads could and should have added to our tally before mid field general, Sean Mackey, struck low into the bottom corner to effectively finish the game as a competition. There were very strong performance all over the pitch with Abel Adam and Gideon Onyejkwe at the heart of our miserly defence. Hamish McNaughton, Ben Corcoran and Cathal Manley all battled like tigers throughout while Alfie Ball ran himself into the ground up front to ensure our opponents would never gain a foothold in the match.
Well done to the whole squad who represented our school with such distinction.
