U12 Premier: Bay Utd 1-4 Rock Celtic  


After suffering two league defeats on the trot, Rock Celtic U12’s got back to winning ways with a 4 – 1 win away to Bay United on Sunday morning.  The away team started strong and dominated the early exchanges with Conal McCaul controlling the midfield. Charlie Murdock and James McNamara chased everything upfront for Rock  and it was Murdock who opened the score with a fine strike after a great through ball from midfield by Josh Hanna.

Bay fought back and were unlucky not to equalise in the 15th minute but some good defending from Connor Casey and a great save from keeper Jack Donoghue denied them. Rock continued to push forward with Hanna causing problems down the right wing. On 20 minutes, Conal McCaul picked up a ball outside the box and fired it low and hard to the back of the net to make it 2-0 to the away team. Rock finished the first half stronger and made it 3-0 with a superb goal from outside the box by left winger Declan Curtin which gave the Bay keeper no chance. The Bay team didn’t give up and worked hard to put pressure on the Rock defence – which soon paid off as they pulled one back to make it 3-1 at half time.

The second half began with the home team applying more pressure down the left wing and were unlucky not to score in the fifth minute when they hit the bar from a great long range effort. Rock responded immediately with a great free kick from outside the penalty area by Josh Hanna to make it 4 – 1. Bay battled well for the remainder of the game and but for a man of the match performance from the Rock keeper – Jack Donohue, the final score would have been much closer.
