Brideview Utd. AFC Schoolboy/Girl Notes
Busy Weekend for United
Yes it was a hectic weekend in many ways for Brideview with three of our teams U12, U14, and U16’s all in action on Saturday. Add in the academy also on Saturday so I’m sure managers and coaches put their feet up late on Saturday night.
Then on Friday night a big number of locals made the trip to the RSC for the blues victory and presentation. Just the one girl was in this large gang but Lucy enjoyed the craic.

Brideview Utd. 45 Castlebridge Celtic 0
A strong wind here did not help either side to play great football. It favoured the visitors in the opening half but the home-sides defence and keeper stood firm. At the break the sides were scoreless. The wind was behind United in the second half and it gave our lads a great advantage. Stephan Murphy set up Aidan Murphy to open the scoring in the 46th min. Joseph McDonnell made it 2-0 in the 50th minute. Joe Morrissey set up Taylor Twohig in the 58th minute to put Utd. 3-0 in front
Then a piece of magic in the 58th min. from Stephan Murphy. Celtics keeper had come out from goal and Murphy sent in a marvellous chip that beat the keeper and ended up in the net. This was the final score and Utd. ran out winners 4-0.
This was a great performance from our lads. Keeper Alex Good kept a clean sheet with some good saves. His defence of Harvey Hagon Lee, Joe Morrissey, Luka Tobin and Joseph McDonnell gave Celtics front men very little room on the ball.
Taylor Twohig, Conor Henley, Stephan Murphy and Ben Grey kept Celtics defence on its toes. Aidan Murphy and Billy Murphy both came on at the break and played their part here in this victory. So well done boys
Utd. A.Good, H.Hagon Lee, J. Morrissey, J. McDonnell, T. Twohig, L.Tobin, S. Murphy, C. Henley, B. Grey, A. Murphy, B. Murphy.

Brideview Utd. 8 Ballybridge Utd 3
No shortage of goals here. The home-side played with a strong wind in the opening half and it helped to give our boys a big lead at the break.
Alex Dowd opened the sociring before Jake O’Brien took over and scored four more goals for Utd. Before the break. So a 5-0 lead to Utd. at the break.
The visitors now with the strong wind behind them came more into the game and pulled two goals back. Alex O’Dowd and Darragh Spillane restored Utds five goal advantage.
The visitors added number three before O’Dowd set up Josh Good for the final goal of a terrific game. Again a great team victory.

Lismore 2 Brideveiw Utd. 1
Utd. were hoping to make it three wins from three games on Saturday but it was not to be. The wind favoured Lismore in the opening half. The opening goal came in the 22nd min. and they added a second ten minutes later and they held this lead until the break.
Utd. now with the wind to their backs had a better second half. Lismore’s keeper twice denied Dalton and Hynes. Lenehans fine header in the 65th minute came crashing back off the post. Hynes set up Mark Dalton in the 70th minute but Utd. failed to get an equaliser and the homeside held out for a fine victory.
Utd: D. Spillane, S. Roche, E. Costello, C. Hurley, T. Dalton, E Lenehan, J Chambers, P Hynes, J. Sheehan, M. Dalton, J. O’Brien
