Destiny Calling!

Clonee United Under 10 girls team in their first season of soccer seem to have a gra for the game and a never give in attitude which was rewarded against an organised and well drilled Shelbourne Girls team. For any supporters wondering if the Malahide Semi was a one off ? Forget it Similar circumstances small club, Sunshine and rain, bigger opponents no divine right but perhaps destiny which is certainly well within the grip of this team!

The game started brightly enough with Aisling Newall upfront and challenging the Shelbourne defenders to test their keeper. Rachel Foran a dynamo tackling in midfield. The game ebbed and flowed with Emily Smith the captain at the heart of the defence with the the focused Grainne Cantwell holding their own against a few talented red shirts. Eva Kelly got stuck in and sent some probing balls forward. Then came the breakthrough when Rachel McCann burst into the game and took on several players had a nice one two with Jaime Thompson and then rifled the Clonee United blues into a lead.

Emma Byrne made some fine saves and Aoibhe Kearney was solid in Midfield and well able to hold her own. Then Shelbourne equalised 1-1. Grace McGrath the pocket dynamo came on up front to spice things up and chase things down until half time 1-1.

The second half started the same way but Rachel McCann raced down the wing and drilled a lovely ball to the far post to Kate Ash back on and up front, she did her little two feet shuffle and bang 2-1 Clonee United. Her trade mark cartwheel after scoring cheered up the large crowd of supporters who turned out in their hundreds again to witness what was turning into another cracking game by all the girls! Shelbourne then fought back again and equalised 2-2. At this point you would have thought the Clonee Blues would have wilted as the strong Shelbourne team pressed and pressed. But with Rachel McCann and Rachel Foran in midfield with Aoibhe Kearney rotating the held their nerve and then a Jaime Thompson went on another of her dribbling runs and lashed the ball to the goal where Kate Ash took a touch to control it and dispatched it into the net with aplomb surely a winner at 3-2? Alas this game was not for the faint hearted as Shelbourne pressed again and equaliser for a third time and in trying to save the goal Emma Byrne picked up a kick to the hand. The whistle blew and extra time was again the order of the day destiny can take many twists it would appear. The ten minutes of extra time went by as both teams tired Grace McGrath went close and challenged bravely till the end as did all the girls! A fantastic final 3-3

It was time for penalties again! Emma Byrne sensationally saved the first two Shelbourne penalties and it was tied at 2-2 Shelbourne having taken the first penalty had had 4 saved by Emma Byrne Sudden death can mean sudden glory also. Cometh the hour cometh the girl. If Clonee Scored they would win the cup – Kate Ash stepped up to take a penalty and slotted it into the net. Clonee United Girls team had won the MGL Under 10 Cup in their first ever season Destinty had called and the team had taken hold of it and finished off a fantastic season in another thrilling and entertaining game.

It must be said that Shelbourne were very gracious in defeat and indeed were a fine example of soccer and how it should be played – Even lending a trophy for the winning team! Following the no show from the MGL who will be forwarding on the cup and the medals at a later date. Grass roots are where it matters and Clonee and Shelbourne certainly have the right roots planted. Soccer in North Dublin looks to have a great entertaining future well done girls.

Castleknock 5 v 4 Clonee United

Under 13 NDSL League F at Porters town

 

A lovely sunny day for the first game of the new season for these 12 year olds. First season on a full size pitch, with off side and full size goals!! These two teams acquitted themselves well in a nine goal thriller. Castleknock took the lead but then two goals from Christian Madden and EmekeEjike put Clonee United in the lead. Castleknock did not give up and pulled a couple back. Danny Ash found himself with space but did not realise he had time to take aim and was unlucky not to test the keeper.

The game was end to end and Lee Hayden looked good when he was involved in the game. Ryan Edge came close from a corner but side footed just wide. Move of the game had to be when Danny Ash played a ball over the defence for Christian Madden to run on to and beat the off side trap and coolly slot past the Castleknock keeper and secure his hat-trick for the game. Clonee pressed and pressed but in the end Castleknock held on for a 5-4 win. Great to be back and scoring goals.

 

Team:

Kirwan; Okafor, Maher, Abdulwasaki; Edge, Ash, O’Brien, Ejike; Madden, Strastian, Sullivan; Dempster, Hayden.

Scorers: Madden (3) Ejike

Clonee United 2 v 1 Shelbourne

 

Littlepace Park

 

 

 

After waiting for nearly 3 months to get their MGL Cup and winners medals following an exhilarating cup final in the AUL who by Penalties following a 3-3 draw The Clonee Girls were in a party mood for the first game. They were presented with their medals prior to the game.

 

 

 

The game started and it was clear that Shelbourne were up for revenge just like Argentina against Germany.  With Laura Fitzpatrick in goal and Aishling Desmond in defence the team took a more defence style in this game – Against the run of play Jaime Thompson found Rachel McCann who went past a defender and scored the first goal of the season. Sophie Monaghan was lively up front but was a little isolated as Shelbourne became more physical and focused.  Grainne Cantwell and Emily Smith were solid at the back.

 

 

 

Aoibhe Kearney came on and was solid in defence. In the second half Emily Smith went in goal and Laura Fitzpatrick was able to play midfield. Which was getting rather heated as Jaime Thompson was injured and Aoibhe Kearney got a knock on the shoulder this allowed Shelbourne to score an equalizer and were on top of the game for a solid 5 minutes. Rebecca Mooney came on for her debut and was lively and got stuck into the game with confidence.

 

 

 

Clonee United dug in and continued to try and play a passing game and Aishling Desmond was phenomenal at the back and went close with a few free kicks. Jaime Thompson came back on and then Kate Ash last year’s poacher turned provider as she won the ball in midfield and sent a ball for Rachel McCann to run onto and score a great winner.

 

 

 

Shelbourne pressed again but unlike Germany the Cup winners of Clonee found resolve and team spirit to win the game and start the season with a well-deserved home win against a good strong Shelbourne team – Well done Clonee United Girls.

 

 

 

Team:

 

Fitzpatrick, Cantwell, Smith, Desmond, McCann, Thompson, Ash, Kearney, Monaghan, Mooney
