Greystones U14s Girls Calmly Crush RushMarch 24, 2019
It was a game of two halves for Greystones United AFC’s U13s this afternoon, when they took on Crumlin United.
With the first half ending 0-0, clearly, the Greystones gang got a pep talk and a half before returning to the pitch.
The bould Paul Smith from GUAFC delivers today’s match report…
The Greystones U13DB team were looking to get their first points of their season in their 3rd league match away to Crumlin United. It was a big challenge as Crumlin are sitting comfortably on top of the table, having won all of their previous games. Plainly put, the Greystones team were the underdogs going into the game and were happy to accept the challenge.
It was a very tight affair in the first half, with Greystones playing against the wind and having to defend against a very strong Crumlin team. The Greystones defence of Meallan Brady, Cian Howard, Dary Smith, Rory McNally and Conor Glynn had to give everything to withstand the high pressure and stop Crumlin from scoring. They weren’t without their own chances in the first half, with some beautiful play being created by midfield Mia McGonnell, with Robbie Owens and Max Moody providing the opportunities for the strike force of Donnacha O’Riordan, Tom McCarthy and Luca O’Shea Breen.
It was 0-0 at half time, and Greystones started the second half brightly, with a sense of confidence and belief not shown all season. They used the wind to their advantage and the deadlock was broken with a super Greystones goal by Donnacha O’Riordan.
Greystones continued the pressure, and Tom McCarthy had scored their second with a super header 5 minutes later. What a match!
This was now all Greystones, and they didn’t sit back after their 2nd, scoring their 3rd goal with a wonderful strike by Luca O’Shea Breen, making it 3-0 with 10 minutes to go. Crumlin did get some chances at the Greystones goal but it was Man Of The Match Conor Glynn who continued to keep Crumlin away from Greystones danger. What a game by Conor, considering it was his first time to play in defence this season. The icing on the cake was a 4th goal by Max Moody, who used his strength and determination to make it 4-0!
What a game for Greystones – the future is bright for this group of players!
