Today we travelled to play Douglas Hall for our first game of the new season and came away with a well deserved 3-1 win. With some players carrying injuries from our friendlies we called upon our new players that joined over the summer to play in positions that they normally wouldnt, and they played superbly.
We found ourselves a goal down at half time after playing up the hill. The second half totally belonged to Greenwood and we scored a deserved equaliser. As the half wore on we eventually scored twice more to see out the game. Scorers on the day were Jamie Geasley, Fergus Herlihy and George Long. Others to mention were Wayne Flood and Brian Goulding
Great excitement today as our u11's played their first competitive match in the Cork Schoolboys League. The opponents were Leeside. An early goal helped settle the nerves and some brave defending kept the opponents at bay and the score was 1:0 at half time.
With the breeze behind them the lads stormed into a 3:0 lead before leeside responded with a goal of their own. The goal served as a wake up call and some excellent breaks from midfield midway through the second half resulted in two more goals and the game finished 5:1.
Scorers for Greenwood Ben O Connor 3, David Egan 2
Well done to all the lads who all played brilliantly.
Greenwood where lucky to be one nil up at half time with own goal in the last minute of the half after scrappy first half. In second half Greenwood did not start well and Ard na Laoi scored in the 50th minute. This was the wakeup call that Greenwood needed and for the rest of the second half Greenwood dominated the game. Greenwood scored four more goals in the second half to run out 5-1 winners with the goals scored by Jamie O’Mahony(2), Shane Murphy and Colman McCarthy. Graham Fitton and Brian O’Connor played well for Greenwood.
Castleview scored after 5 mins and held this lead until half-time despite Greenwood dominating and Castleview having a man sent off in the 40th min.
In the second half Greenwood again dominated but could not get the goals needed. This all changed in the 75th when Mathew Quilter scored with a powerful header. Just 2 mins later he repeated this with another great header to put Greenwood 2-1 up. Greenwood continued to dominate and saw out the game to finish as 2-1 winners. Jamie O'Brien and Andrew Sweeney played well for Greenwood.
A very hard game with both teams very committed. Greenwood led at half-time with Michael Cronin scoring from the penalty spot.
Carrig equalised in the second half also from the penalty spot. With time running out, Greenwood were awarded their second penalty and Michael Cronin again did the business to give Greenwood a hard fought win. Best for Greenwood were Owen and Gavin Sweeney along with James O'Sullivan.
Greenwood B second league game of the season away against Afton Villa and came away with a hard fought three points with a 3-2 win . Got off to a bad start when we had a man sent off after 20 minutes and where one nil down at half time. Greenwood played much better in second half and went 3-1 up with goals from Graham Fitton, Michael O’Donovan and Jamie O’Mahony. Afton Villa then pulled one back to make it 3-2 but held on for the three points.
Greenwood's first game of the season was a tough one against last years league winners. 2 down at half time , Bernard O'Riordan pulled one back. Greenwood had a good period after this but gave away a third. Greenwood continued to fight and Keith Punch scored to bring them back into the game. Time ran out with Park deserving winners but Greenwood happy with the performance.
