U13 Division 1

 Salthil  Devon b 4 - 2 Moyne Villa B

 A very entertaining game played in  blustery Drum on Saturday morning. Against the wind in the first half, Villa got off to a nervy start and after 5 minutes a speculative shot by the home team flew into the roof of net. We composed ourselves well after that with Oisin Whelan, Eoin Mannion, Oisin O Flaharta & Sean Carolan all solid in the back. The home side's second came after 20 minutes from a corner which was volleyed in. 2-0 at half time. 

 Second half we really stepped up our performance and put Salthill under all sorts of pressure which paid  off after 40 mins when Cathal Gavin won a penalty and stepped up to convert it himself. Cian McGaugh and Jamie O Regan started to cause huge problems down the wings with their pace but as we attacked with intent we got caught on the counter which led to the home team adding 2 more. We never gave up and urged each other which finally led to our second when Oisin Whelan scored from a long range free kick.

We attacked again for the final 10 minutes with Cian McHugh, Ryan O Donnell, Seb Tjalsma & Harry Hughes all adding to the attack with Matthew Cahill unlucky not to score on a few occasions. Any further attacks were dealt with well by Dylan O Connell between the posts. This was probably one of the best performances by the lads this season where we should great attitude and commitment. Keep it up lads!!!!
