St Patrick's Boys AFC 5 - 4 Crettyard United AFC

What a fantastic effort by both sides in very breezy conditions.

From then on Pat's dominated the game game and were unlucky to find themselves level through a Crettyard break. Pat's then took the lead through the clinical Mark Buggy with a well taken goal from a fantastic counter attack,soon afterwards he then scored his second with a Van Persiesic diving header from a Evan Kelliher cross.

HT 3-2

The second half started with a bang as Crettyard countered Pat's and drew level again to make it 3-3, soon after Mark Buggy scored his 3rd with another well taken goal. It was end to end after that and Cretty levelled things again with a few minutes to go. Then Mark Buggy scored his 4th and the final goal of the game from another fantastic Pat's counter attack with a mix up in the defence and he was deadly from 2 yards out.

Vale Comeback stuns Cretty
U16 03/10 10:00
Vale Wanderers AFC 3 - 3 Crettyard United AFC

Crettyard had the majority of chances in the opening quarter & Vale were kept in the game by 2 superb pieces of keeping by Simon McDonald. However hesitant defending twice saw Vale gift the visitors 2 goals as first Tadhg Dineen & then Sean O'Sullivan converted from overturned possession. Vale were struggling to cope with Crettys first style & had limited chances going forward.

The second half saw a much improved Vale create openings but were caught on the break to concede a penalty. Again Simon in the goal came to the rescue to tip the spot kick onto th he post. However Vale were hit on the break again & Cretty went 3 up with a fine finish from just out side the box. The comeback began in the final quarter as Vale pressed forward looking for a foothold in the game. Adam Farrell delivered with a superb 30 yard volley over the keeper into the right of the goal. Vales tails were up & 2 minutes later Charlie Nolan was hauled down in the box. He dusted himself off to convert the spot kick & it was game in for the final 5 minutes. Charlie Nolan went close as a fee on the home sideline from 25 yards out went narrowly over. Cretty were dangerous on the break but Luke Barron was composed at the back. Vales chance came late on as a repeat of Nolan earlier free fell to Sam Murphy to take. His effort bypassed Crettys defence to dip & deceive their keeper & fly in just inside the far post to level the game. Both sides had late surges but the ref blew up to share the spoils with Vale the happier after a Super comeback

Best for Crettyard Tadhg Dineen, Sean O'Sullivan & Jack Gorman. Vales best were Luke Barron, Joey Byrne & Dean Reddy with a man of the match performance by Bobby Daly
