Blarney U16A’s v Avondale

Jose’s army notched up another 3 points with a well deserved win against the Ballinlough outfit. Avondale started well and put pressure on the Blarney teens but it was only a matter of time before Sean O Deadhaidh and Luke Keogh showed their dominance and took control of the game by playing in Michael Carey and Adrian Morley who were proving a handful for the Avondale defence. The Blarney keeper was in fine form and was able to act as a sweeper to help his central defence pair of Emett O’Shea and Thomas Falvey and keep the Avondale forwards at bay.
The breakthrough came when Luke Keogh scored an absolute screamer from the half way line to put BUFC ahead deservedly so. The BUFC boys smelled blood and within three minutes and after a great piece of work from Ronan Mac Donagh passing to Adrian Morley who crossed to allow Carey to finish with ease.
The Second half was all Avondale trying to cancel the lead but the Blarney men stood resolute and kept the opposition shooting from distance. BUFC were the much better team and unlucky not to score a third. Everybody has played an important part from 1 to 16. We are very proud of the lads and their efforts and competitive sporting nature.

Blarney U16A’s v Churchvilla

It was a beautiful afternoon for a game of ball in O Shea Park. Jose’s army welcomed Churchvilla and it proved to be a great result for the Blarney men. It took Blarney a while to get to grips with the game.The Blarney back four were immense and dealt with any pressure that the east cork men threw at them. Luke Keogh and Charlie Murphy were very dominant in midfield and provided lots of opportunities for the front men both Carey and Morley and the striking pair made good use of the quality ball. Michael Carey scored a hat trick and it could have been more. His striking partner Adrian Morley got a brace to show Blarney’s dominance. Churchvilla got a late penalty which they converted well but Blarney left the best to last when a set piece corner  straight from the training ground was converted by Thomas Falvey which was just rewards for the ever hard working defender. Well done to the whole team. 

Best of Luck Aiden
