U12: CLONTARF 3 BOHEMIAN FC 2
March 5, 2014
Bohemians’ Under-12s were playing away to Clontarf on Saturday. They unfortunately got off to a bad start after Clontarf scored from an early corner.
After that, the majority of the attacking play was from Bohs, with Padhraig Doran doing some great work in midfield. Bohs had two great chances but could not get the ball into the goal.
Bohs brought on Keith O’Connor Smith and Jimmy Cripps and with their introduction, the away side were again on top of possession. Again though, Clontarf broke and scored with one of the last kicks of the first half.
After half-time, Bohs came out like a steam train, piling the pressure on Clontarf. The home team did well to hold out until Jamie Martin fired a shot into the bottom corner.
Great defending from James Duke ensured there was no more slip-ups in defence, while Bohs continued to pressurise. They were awarded a free-kick outside the box which Lee Gorman cooly put into the top corner.
Bohs had more chances with Luke Conroy and Brad Mooney linking up, but the effort was held well by the home keeper. Some great football was played by the Bohs Under-12s, which will give them positive confidence in the next few months.
