U16A’s v Middleton

It was a fresh morning for a game of football in O Shea park. One of the league favourites Midleton were the visitors. The game started well and it was a very close contest for the first 20 minutes with both teams playing good expansive football. Blarney really took control  later in the half with Luke Keogh and Michael Carey were unlucky not to put the Blarney boys in front. The Blarney keeper and back 4 were always in control.
In the second half Sean O Deadhaidh took control of the midfield and the Blarney team were really getting on top of the game and the deadlock was broken when Carey used one of his locker room tricks and took control of the ball and slotted past the helpless Midleton keeper. Blarney had a few more chances and would regret not taking one of the chances when Midleton were awarded an indirect free kick in the Blarney box which they converted.
The game was played with a good competitive spirit but on reflection Blarney deserved the 3 points. The whole team from 1 to 14 were brilliant but the coaches man of the match was Sebin Sabu. We wish the whole team and their families a Happy and enjoyable Christmas. Jose and Eoin

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.
