Supervalu Game of the week – Blarney U13’s 0-0 Corinthians

Game of the week –

Blarney Utd U13s played out a 0-0 draw v Corinthians Boys today. There may have been no goals and plenty of rain but both team put on a great performance. Corinthians started the stronger and had Blarney penned in their own half for the first 10 minutes. Blarney’s defense held up well with good defensive displays from Cian Lawless and Ben O Connell limiting Corinthians to only a couple of half chances. Blarney gradually got a foothold in the game and gained more possession as the half went on. In the second half Blarney started to dominate midfield with Jack Murray and Darragh Lyons getting the upper hand and playing good possession football. Ronan Byrd ran well between the lines and Ronan O Keeffe was a handful for the Corinthians defense and held up play well. There was superb wing play from Luke Philpott who delivered excellent crosses for  Blarney Utd who were now putting the Corinthians defense under pressure. Corinthians though did have a couple of chances on the break but great defense by Blarney Utd full backs Eoghan Ahern and Robert Dooling kept them at bay. Overall it was great squad performance by Blarney Utd who could have taken 3 points from the Premier League leaders. Full squad for Blarney Utd – Mike Russell, Eoghan Ahern, Callum Donohoe, Cian Lawless, Ben O’Connell, Luke Philpott, Daniel O Connor, Jack Murray, Darragh Lyons, Ronan Byrd, Ronan O’ Keeffe, Robert Dooling, Dale Heinen, Liam Daly And Danny O’Mahony.

Blarney 16A have impressive away win in Mallow friendly.

Blarney 16A’s travelled away to Mallow this week for a friendly on Saturday morning. The Blarney side started very well and Thomas Falvey and Charlie Murphy playing well. Luke Keogh was rock solid between the sticks. It was a evenly contested side and it took something special to break the deadlock and for the third game in a row Issac Herlihy scored a screamer of a free kick to put Blarney ahead,
Blarney took control of the tie in the second half and Sean O Deadhaidh scored a second with some good inter play with Ronan Mac Donnagh. Blarney’s third came from a cross from Jacob Kelliher which Adrian Morley dispatched with coolness personified. In truth the 16’s could have had a few more goals only for a good display from the Mallow Goal Keeper.
