Scoil Cholmcille Division 3 League Champions - Match Report from Captain Christopher Byrne

On Wednesday the 14th of June the boys football team played in the all Dublin Division 3 final in the AUL Complex. Their opponents were Swords ETNS. Swords started the game well, but we soon broke through and Sean Doyle netted to score the first of the game. Soon after that Aidan Merrigan chased a long ball and got on the end of it to put us 2-0 up before half time.We went into the second half 2-0 up although Ciaran Kelly was tested early. Swords looked the better team but Evan O'Connell put the game to bed thanks to an amazing ball by Adam Mitchell. Swords soon broke through our defence and took it around Ciaran but they couldn't find the back of the net. Swords ETNS fought a hard battle but we kept them out thanks to some amazing saves by the FAI Man Of The Match Ciaran Kelly. - Christopher Byrne

"All of the lad's played well and it was a good match," - Riain Geoghegan

"I was happy to play and take the cup home" - Ciaran Kelly

The boys football team have been playing in Division 3C this year and won their group with 9 points out of a possible 12. We then went on to play against Rush and Lusk ETNS in the quarter finals. We won it on penalties to go through. Scoil Úna Naofa Crumlin were our opponents. We went 1-0 up thanks to a brilliant run by Sean Doyle. We went back out after half time still 1-0 up but our lead was soon over when they scored to make it level. Within a few minutes they had scored again. Before we knew it we were fighting harder than ever for our place in the final. With a few minutes left Evan O'Connell made a beautiful run to play Sean Doyle in for his second goal of the game. The penalties were very even. It was 4-4 and they put it wide. Sean Doyle stepped up to take it. He had missed his last penalty so the pressure was on.
