Rebel OG County B under 15 Football Championship Quarter Final v Millstreet Venue Millstreet

Glenville 2-10

Millstreet 2-7

Our under 15 footballers have advanced to the semi-final of the County Championship after an Enthralling finish against a strong Millstreet side when this quarter final tie was played on away soil. Conditions on the day were idea as we decided to play against the strong breeze in the first half. Glenville were slow starting off but once we got into the game we began to dominate the midfield area and a superb Eoin Desmond point from an impossible angle had us up and running. However Millstreet would respond with two quick points in the space of five minute’s but minutes later Glenville lost one of their best players Rob Mc Kenna who seemed to have picked up a serious injury his Replacement Cathal Fitzgerald proved to be a big influence in the Glenville full back line. After a few positional changes it was not long

until we got our second score coming from a Lee Flannigan free to leave the scores at 0-2 to 0-2 with fifteen minutes gone. From the resulting kick out that was won by Padraigh O’Leary set Glenville on the move and a lovely hand pass into Eoin Desmond who shot was saved by Keeper out for the expense for a Glenville 45 which lee Flannigan chipped the ball past the Millstreet keeper for the opening goal of the game. As the half grew to a close Millstreet purple patch began to kick in so our backs had to be alert to snif out the danger at any moment but Shane O’Regan was brilliant at full back winning a serious amout of ball as he kepted the Millstreet backs at bay. However our defence was carved right open as Millstreet broke through on goal but only for Colin Cronin to make a vital block to stop the ball from hitting the back of the net but from the rebound Millstreet worked a well taken point. Then concentration slipted in the Glenville defence as Millstret work a well taken goal to edge them into a one point lead 1-2 to 1-3. The Midfield partnership of Timmy Hegarty and Padraigh O’Leary was working perfectly as they turned over a good amount of possession and Jake O’Brien almost got his name on the score sheet but his effort just went to right and wide. Both teams finished the half strong scoring a point a piece our score came from Evan Lynch which meant at the interval there was only a point in it at the interval as Glenville trailed on a score line of 1-4 to 1-3. Whatever was in those bottles of water seemed to pay off as we upped the tempo came forward in waves of attack and points from Lee Flannigan, and Evan Lynch helped Glenville run into a one point lead. Straight away the opposite end of the field Shane O’Regan had to alert at full back as Millstreet broke on the counter but his quick intelligence didn’t let him down as he intercepted the ball at a crucial moment which could have resulted in a Millstreet goal. However we were unable to keep up with frantic pace as Millstreet broke on the counter and hit over the equalising score. Timmy Hegarty who was Brilliant all day at midfield won the kick out and a neat hand pass to Eoin Desmond who put the ball over the bad to edge Glenville back into lead once again and it was not long until midfielder Padraigh O’Leary got his name on the score sheet with one of the scores of the game to put us up by two points. The Full Back line of Shane O’Regan, Cathal Fitzgerald, and Ciarn O’ Leary were superb all day as they stopped the Millstreet full forward line from scoring whenever they got the opportunity. With the clock reaching the

final ten minutes it looked like that we would hold out for a two point win but what unfolded in those last ten minutes you would not believe your eyes. Within Two minutes Millstreet hit two quick points to leave the scores at 1-7 apiece but then a turning point which Resulted in Millstreet been reduced to 14 players at first it looked like that it was a Black Card but something was said to the referee which resulted in the Millstreet player been sent off. That meant we had to change our formation so Right half back Colin Croin played the sweeper roll and that came into immediate effect as his draring solo run up the field and nice little one two to Lee Flannigan who put the ball straight between the post to put us into the lead by a point that was quickly followed by a Padraigh O’Leary point from a free which mean that Glenville were leading by two point with twenty nine minutes gone. With time almost up it was looking like that we were going to take the victory but only for Millstreet to make their way up the pitch to score a screamer of a goal to put them one in front and it was looking like that they were going to snatch the victory . What happened next you would not believe your eyes from the resulting kick out that was won by Colin Cronin as he broke up the field at lightning speed? And a sweeping move that saw him and Padraigh O’Leary set up Mark O’Riordan whose effort was saved by the keeper but only for the perfectly positioned O’Leary to goal from the rebound there were scenes of joy from all of the Glenville player’s and management but that was not the end as Glenville broke on the counter attack as we work a well executive move to set up Colin Cronin who was unmarked for his shot to be fisted over the bar. There was time for one last attack as Millstreet broke up the field looking for the goal to take the match into extra time but their shot was saved by the Brilliance of the Glenville Keeper Niall O’Sullivan in which the ball was turned over by Shane O’Regan who set Glenville on the move but his pass was intercepted which gave Millstreet one last chance but the clever thinking of Shane O’Reilly who made a darting run at hundred miles an hour to bring down the Millstreet player for the expense of a free. Glenville needed fresh legs as they brought on substitute Colm Curtain for Jack O’Brien who made and immediate impact straight away as the Millstreet shot that was destined to settle into the bottom right hand corner of the net but for Colm to stick out a leg at the crucial moment to send the ball out for a 45. From that resulting 45 saw Shane O’Regan get up highest, strongest with determinate

caught the ball in the air and broke past the Millstreet defence and belted the ball up the field and at that very moment the referees whistle blew. This meant at full time it was Glenville that came out on top winning by three points in the end 2-10 to 2-7.

We responded to the Carrigaline Goal with points from Timmy Hegarty, and Dylan power increased our lead back out to seven points. Once again our defence was carved right through as Carrigaline reduced the gap to four points with another well taken goal so we knew right then that we had a game on our hands and a Timmy Hegarty Goal was just exact ally what we needed and that was followed by a Darragh O’Leary goal as our lead was now out to ten points with time almost up. Carrigaline gave it everything they had in the last few minutes of the game as they managed to score two Goals in quick succession to reduce the margin down to just four points.
