Greenwood ABBA night was a huge success with approx 200 people attending. The night ran without a hitch and everybody enjoyed it immensely. The band were outstanding and they put on a great show. Thanks to everyone who supported the evening, it is very much appreciated.
A bad day at the office for us today. We started well and took an early lead but we just fell apart. Carrigaline equalised and soon after took the lead. We were unlucky when Dylan Hayes had a superb bicycle kick tipped over the bar. Carrigaline then went 3 1 up. We got a consolation goal late on. Best on the day for us was Cian Murphy and Dylan Hayes. We have to put our heads down now and move on from this.
This was a game we were expected to win with Ard Na Laoi lying at the bottom of the table with only 1 point all season. Unfortunately it did not turn out that way. We had numerous chances in the first half to take the lead but failed to do so with the Ard na Laoi keeper making some fine saves. The second half was a carbon copy of the first with all the chances coming our way.
On Sunday morning we played Inishvilla at home. At half time the score line was 0-0. Inishvilla had the better of the first 20/25 mins and were unlucky not too score after a goalbound effort was cleared off the line. Soon after we had our best chance of the first half when a terrific low shot from Daniel Hinds was well saved by the Inishvilla keeper. Jamie o’Mahony followed up but his effort came off the crossbar.
Greenwood U11s met Mallow United A in the second round of the Kevin Dillon cup on Saturday. The game was very even for the first 10 minutes until a quick break put Cian McCarthy through on goal, he was taken down for a penalty but we failed to convert the chance. The chances could have gone either way in the first half, but when Kevin McCoy cleared the ball off the line by taking a shot full on in the face we knew we were lucky to keep it 0-0 at half time.
We started out of the blocks in our first season playing premier football with a 4-0 win at home to Carrigaline. We then went to play Lakewood full of confidence but let a two goal lead slip and came away disappointed with a 2-2 draw. Our next match was a 3-1 win at home to Mallow in the league. We got a break from league action with a national cup match v Temple and we advanced here on a 7-0 scoreline.
Last Sunday, the Junior A team won 3-1 away to Glen Celtic in the quarter finals of the Mossie Linnane Cup. It was a great win and a brilliant team performance. We were three up inside a half hour. Colin Dennehy opened the scoring with a lovely lob, Mickey Cronin added a second with a nice finish and then was taken down for a pen which keeper Jason Sexton buried into the top corner
