In a busy weekend for our teams the club under 14’s kicked it off with a game in Ballinderry Sports field against Lough Derg Saturday morning. In their first game of the season they started off in the best possible fashion with a 2 – 1 win. After falling a goal behind from a well worked goal the lads got stuck into the game and got two great goals. Adam Slattery opened his account for the season with a great lob over the keeper and it was Conor Ryan who popped up with the winner with a cracker of a free kick. Lough Derg came strong in the 2nd half but the young “R’s” held strong and kept the score at 2 – 1 well done to all players who gave 110% in this game and to the management team who have put in a lot of hard work so far.
Our Junior team travelled away to play B.T. Harps on Sunday morning for their 3rd league game and after a loss and a draw the lads were determent to get their season up and running with a win. After been on the back foot for most of the 1st half with saw our keeper Dan Redden make outstanding saves as well as Dermot Hogan clearing one off the line and a penalty missed by the home side we went in 0 – 0 at half time which also saw us having a goal ruled out after a tight call for off side. Into the 2nd half we started to play with more confidence and after some fine play Josh McKenna found space between their keepers legs to give us a 1 – 0 lead. With a great defensive effort and more great saves for Dan we won 1 – 0. Well done to all players and management on a great result.
