Tralee Trophy World Under Div. 2
St. Brendan’s Park Fc U16B 3 : 2 Fenit Samphires
Our 16 B’s recorded their second win of the league after a hard fought win against an ex-Park loaded Fenit on Saturday evening on a score line of 3 – 2. Robert Kerins opened the scoring after twelve minutes after the Fenit keeper had made a fine double save. Straight from the tip off we won back the ball & Jacob Radulescu hit the net for our second in less than a minute. Between this & halftime we could have had three or four more but for some last gasp saves & poor finishing but Slywester Trafny eventually getting our third before the break with a neat turn & shot.
It wasn’t however all one way traffic as Fenit came close on a number of occasions but for DJ Griffin making at least three smart saves & Ryan O Sullivan clearing off the line. Liam Magee & Peter Dineen had a lot to do but dealt with the job magnificently through out. Conor Kavanagh & Ryan both played outstanding & ran themselves into the ground.
The second half was backs to the walls stuff as Fenit threw the kitchen sink at us & on fifty minutes got what they deserved with a good finish. Within ten minutes it was three two after a free deceived DJ to leave us hanging on. Despite both sides having a number of chances, some very good chances, that was the way it finished.
But for the brilliant display by Jordan Mason & also Liam Magee in centre mid in the second half & Robert Kerins who played in about four different positions we surely wouldn’t have come away with three points. At last the full time whistle blew & our lads enjoyed the win, well done to all sixteen players who gave it everything.
Man of the match: Liam Magee.
