IRELAND KIDS STAGE COMEBACK

IRELAND UNDER-17s 2 AUSTRIA UNDER 17s 1

Tom Mohan’s Ireland Under-17 side produced a dramatic second-half fightback to secure a 2-1 victory over Austria at Dalymount Park yesterday evening, writes STEPHEN FINN (courtesy of FAI).

With both sides looking towards the elite qualifying round of the UEFA Under-17 Championship later this month, it was a highly competitive game and Mohan will have taken a lot from the performance as well as the result.

Ireland started livey when an early free-kick from Tom Holland created a golden chance for debut boy Jerry McDonagh, but he just failed to connect.

However Austria were in superb form in the first half and strung together long periods of possession. They eventually found a way past the well-marshalled Irish defence in the 25th minute when Bernhard Fila cut the ball back and Sinan Yilmaz fired home superbly on the turn.

Ireland had to weather the storm but they were better after the break and levelled in the 61st minute when Nottingham Forest striker McDonagh exploited a gap in the Austrian defence and fired home emphatically from the edge of the box.

Steven Kinsella then produced a dangerous delivery in the 74th minute that Austrian defender Stefan Posch swiped at and was lucky to see the ball deflected onto his own crossbar before bouncing over.

David Gugganig was then penalised for a foul on Conor Masterson in the Austrian penalty area in the 81st minute and captain Georgie Poynton stepped up to fire home from the spot.

Defender Benjamin Kaufmann had a chance to level in the 86th minute with an excellent low shot from distance but it was well saved by Irish keeper Evan Moran.

U14: BOHEMIANS 1 EAST MEATH UTD 3

Bohemians faced EMU in a cup match on Saturday. Bohs began brightly with some great work by Jamie Clowry and Sam Hegany on the right side of the pitch.

Bohs continued to have the majority of the early action with the centre midfield doing some great defensive work. The Gypsies had another great opportunity after about 10 mins with some great work from Kamil Schlass and Andy Mulholland, they combined well and were unlucky to see their shot going inches wide.

As the match went on, the recent weather affects on the pitch started to show, as Bohs slick passing and movement was becoming ever harder to perform. Two quick counter attacks by the visitors left Bohs trailing at half-time.

As Bohs pushed forward more it gave the visitors a chance to take control of the centre of the pitch and possession became more even. Bohs responded, however, firstly a free-kick from Kamil Schlass which the keeper wasn’t able to hold  at first nearly led to a goal by Lido Lotefa, who showed a great response to move in so quickly.
