CMUL 14 Championship V Cavan Celtic

Cavan Celtic 5-1 Carrick Rovers
CMUL 14 Championship

Rovers made the long trek to Cavan town to take on Cavan Celtic in their league campaign. Rovers started spritely, with the disappointment of the previous weeks performance still ringing in their ears.

Rovers grabbed the first goal of the game with Jack Gillick heading home at the near post from a Dylan Ward corner. As the half wore on Cavan Celtic retained more and more of the possession and they probed and poked through balls in behind the Rovers defence. Breffini Henry, playing in goals, at times seemed unbeatable as he pulled off a number of magnificent saves he really had no right to save – one in particular destined for the top right corner was palmed at full stretch onto the cross bar and wide to the gasps of the onlooking supporters. Celtic eventually made the break through from a corner kick, Rovers failing to deal with the ball at the near post, Cavan Celtic were left with an easy finish to equalise. Rovers continued to press but conceded again just before half time and ended the half 2-1 down.

Rovers went into the second half in good spirits and hopeful of coming away with a result. However, Cavan Celtic began the second half the stronger and peppered the Rovers defence, keeping them under pressure for long periods. Cormac O’ Hanlon battled bravely at left back, tackling strongly but was unfortunately sidelined midway through the half after picking up a knock in the tackle. Celtics strength showed as they grabbed another 2 goals in quick succession, leaving the Rovers players visibly shaken. To their credit though, shook but still standing the Rovers team battled on and didn’t let their heads drop. The game finished 5:1, Celtic claiming a final goal from distance, but Rovers can take heart from their commitment and collective team effort as they move forward in the season.

Team: Breffini Henry, Conor O’Rourke, Aaron Kearney, Eoghan Dilan, Jamie King, Cormac O‘Hanlon, Fionnan Cassidy (Captain), Michal Stemplewski, Euan Matthews, Jack Gillick, Dylan Ward, Jamie King, Adam Garvey, Eoin Duffy
