U14A - Greenwood A 3 Springfield Ramblers B 2

A very poor first half performance saw us go in at half time losing 2-0. We were a totally different team in the second half and deserved our 3-2 win. About 10mins into the second half a through ball over the top found Aaron Gilmore which still had to be controlled, was done so with a great first touch, taken on and powerfully finished into roof of the net to give us our first. Five minutes later a lovely turn and through ball which caught out the Springfield back four by Christopher Duffy set up Oyemen Ayere who controlled and cooly finished with a precise strike across the goalkeeper into the side of the net.

After that goal we seemed to sit back as if to accept a draw with still 20mins left, but with encouragement from both management and attending parents we again lifted our game. With 5 mins left it looked as if a draw was on the cards until Nathan Harris intercepted a clearance and strongly held off a challenge to slot the ball into the path of Duffy who took it on into right hand side of penalty area and when he was about to be challenged by chasing defender he cleverly pulled it back onto his favoured left foot and calmly slotted the ball past the Springfield 'keeper into left side of net to finish off a well deserved comeback.

In what was a much improved second half by all special mention has to go to our back four of David Yoannou, Jamie Foley, John Joe Higgins and Nathan Harris who were outstanding and didn't give Springfield a sniff in second half. This win has put us back on top of league by a point after 4 games.

fine finishes. Ringmahon pulled a goal back on the stroke of half time.

Lakewood 1 Greenwood 2
We made it 3 wins out of three in the league today. We played very well in the 1st half and took the lead through a thumping free kick from Oran Daly. We failed to add any more goals while on top

We doubled our advantage 10 mins into 2nd half through Ethan

Sun. 7th Nov.
Riverstown Boys 5 Greenwood A 5
Clean equally contested game by both teams. Christopher Duffy opened the scoring with a great individual goal after through ball by Aaron Gilmore. He beat the last man and lifted it over oncoming keeper. Riverstown replied with two goals in quick succession to take 2-1 lead. Then after winning the ball in midfield Oyemen Ayere sent Duffy on his way again and in similar style to his first calmly placed it to the oncoming keepers right to make it 2-2. Five minutes before half time Greenwood were awarded a penalty after a foul on Aaron Gilmore. Up stepped Duffy to complete his first half hat trick by coolly slotting it into top left corner. We deserved to go in with half time lead after squandering a few chances but Riverstown had other ideas and equalised on the stroke of half time. 3-3 and all to play for. We started the second half slowly and conceded a fourth within a few minutes, only to be followed up shortly afterwards by a fifth but then everyone dug in deep with John Joe Higgins taking control of defence and Michael Ahern the midfield to settle the ship. Two second half goals by Oyemen Ayere gave us a deserved draw.

We were well on top at this stage and in the dying minutes Evan Forest O Brien put the icing on the cake with a third to see us earn a well deserved but hard fought victory and give us 7 points out of a possible 9 in our opening three games.

U17 Match Reports

Today our team played douglas hall and recorded a fine 3 nil win. Playing on a very bad pitch Greenwood won the toss and played up the hill for the 1st half. Greenwood found themselves a goal up after their 1st real attack. With some tigerish tackling in midfield the ball fell to the feet of Ryan O Connell who finished the ball to the net to put greenwood one up. Douglas upped the tempo after this and went looking for an equaliser. The back 4 of Steven Mellerick , Evan Coughlan, Ryan McCarthy ,the outstanding Danny Hayes and keeper Aaron Geasley coped with everything Douglas threw at them. Half-time score 1-0.

Playing downhill for the second half Greenwood were the dominant team and deservedly got a second with a powerful header from Danny Hayes. As the half progressed a 3rd goal was scored again from Ryan O Connell. Greenwood thought they had a 4th when Adam Cotter scored with a sweet left footer only to be called for off-side. So it finished Greenwood 3 douglas 0.

Players to mention were the impressive Luke Cotter , Luke (BOOTS) McHale AND Garret O Connor

U18 Greenwood 2 Carrigaline 1

The 18s are keeping the winning momentum going with another great win at home against Carrigaline 2-1. We took the lead with a long range goal from Luke Cotter. We were well on top, hitting the post and also with the ball clearly over the line but the referee was not in the best position to see it. Against the run of play Carrigaline equalised. But with 2 minutes to go a great header from Danny Hayes gave us a well deserved win. Great team performance. A big thanks to the U17s for supporting us again today.
