U17s Connacht Shield Final - Match Report

Clifden CS 3 v St. Joseph's Foxford 2
U17s Connacht Shield Final - Match Report

What a match!! 🏆

After conceding an early penalty and then a second from a cross into the far post we knew it was all to play for going into the second half 2 goals down Jack Weesjes took over the captain's role for this final as Michéal King was unavailable due to illness, Jack led bravely from the front however a few minutes before half-time he injured his shoulder and couldn't play on, Ronan Mannion our Vice Captain stood up to the challenge and continued to rally the team. Our determination paid off when James Conroy whom came on for Jack, finished off a well positioned cross to score, this lifted the team and the number of supporters that travelled. Ten minutes later with our constant forward pressure we won a penalty which was coolly taken by John Davis 2-2 game on. The team built momentum and feeding off the great side line support deservedly won a free kick about 22 yards out from goal. Again John Davis stood up to the challenge and with precision placed it into the bottom corner now 3-2. Both teams had further opportunities in the last 10mins however we held the ball with more intent playing smart and not giving away easy possession. This was a spirited effort by a team of players who in still the "We before Me" attitude and put everything on the line for each other. 🏆
