Brideview Utd Junior and Schoolboy Notes
Two Teams in Semi Finals
Next weekend promises to be a hectic one for our Junior club. Both our A and B teams are involved in The Semi Finals of the Ned Barry cup. What are the odds on both teams reaching the final. It would be first ever for the club. Our A team were already through to the semi final but our B team won a thriller on Sunday morning last.
Result: Ned Barry Quarter Final, Kinsalebeg Celtic 1, Brideview Utd B 2.
Yes our B team advanced to the cup semi final after a hard fought victory away in Kinsalebeg. Ahearne was first into action for Utd after 11 minutes but he shot wide from close range. The opening goal came in the 14th minute when Mark Stewart beat the full back and gave a great through ball to Ahearne to shoot home. A David Kingston cross saw Stewarts volley come back off the post and was cleared. The homeside grabbed an equaliser in the 23rd minute and the sides went in level at the break 1-1, so it was all to play for in the second half. In the 48th min Andy O Riordan shot over the Utds keeper Walsh did well to keep Utd level when he saved well in the 51st min. Robbie O Sullivan set up Ahearne in the 71st minute but latter shot was saved well by Celtics keeper. With just 5 mimutes remaining and extra time looming. Utds captain Thomas McGrath sent in a great ball into Celtics penalty area and Andy O Riordan reacted first and shot to the net much to the delight of Utds players and supports. Utd held out for the final few minutes and reached the cup semi-final. So well done boys.
