U13 Premier: Bay Utd V Rock Celtic                                         


Rock Celtic U13's kicked off their season away to last year’s cup winners and league runners up Bay Utd. The Rock squad has been strengthened this year with the return of goalie fantastic Josh Mackin who was captaining the side. Bay Utd were also fielding a stronger team this year with some new additions.  

Within the first minute Rock went 1-0 up with James Kieran scoring his first ever goal for the team. Bay then settled into the game and showed their class by keeping the ball in the Rock half for the next 15 minutes with new signing Tom Jackson scoring a goal from their 4th successive corner. Fantastic defending from Richie Dunne, Conor Soraghan, Donal Leavy and Paul O'Grady kept Rock level. Towards the end of the half Bay’s goalie, David Odsoomu pulled off a number of great saves from Oran O'Hanlon and Josh Connolly. In the 2nd half Rock came out from the whistle and played very fluent passing football with central midfielder Ciaran Johnston scoring 2 goals during some great link up play involving Jack Barron, Aaron McQuillan and Kevin Campbell. Luke Hoban playing just in front of the back four didn't let the ball pass him. The fourth goal came when Finn Reilly won the ball in defence and passed to Ciaran Johnston who played a ball through to Josh Connolly who stuck it in the Bay net. Bay never dropped their heads, continued to push forward, and were always dangerous at set pieces with Ope Stephens The safe hands of Josh Connolly and his huge kicking ability helped push the ball back into the Bay half. The game finished 4-1 to Rock Celtic which was a well deserved win.
