U15’s to play Trim in the Div 2 FC Final

The U15s met Walterstown in the Div 2 FC Semi-Final at Millbrook this morning (14/11/2021), and booked their place in the final in emphatic style.

Walterstown started the best, with a goal and point on the board in the opening minutes. Cillian Fanning’s kickout then found Rory Crawley, who got it onwards to Nathan Gibney, on via Ivan Smyth then back to Nathan, who buried her in the back of the net. That got the Oldcastle heads screwed on again and was followed soon after by a nice point from Pat Crawley, and a goal from Paul Hennessy. Further points from Pat, Ivan and Rory before the break saw the half-time score of Oldcastle 3-04, Walterstown 1-04.

Walterstown put two points over on the resumption, but any hope of a comeback was dashed when Ryan Halpin got the next ball on to Jamie Pakenham, he passed her on to Rory and in to Paul Hennessy who once again found the back of the net. The Oldcastle goalfest kept going with another from Rory minutes later.

The Oldcastle defence were working hard all the while, some great clearances and tackles all round, denying the opposition chances. Walterstown kept trying but just couldn’t get back in the game, with the Oldcastle lads securing their place in the final against Trim on a scoreline of Oldcastle 5-08, Walterstown 1-08.
