CONGRATULATIONS COLAISTE EOIN

Well done to the Colaiste Eoin team who are the worthy winners of the Carlow/Kilkenny U15 soccer league beating Grennan College in a fiercely contested battle by 2 (3) to 2 (2). Grennan looked like they were going to take the win at half time leading by a goal. First Year Adam Kinsella however, player of the match had a different take on things and equalised with an astounding goal from 30 yards out. Grennan made the match even more thrilling when they took the lead again with an excellent strike from the edge of the 18 yard box. With two minutes left to play, Conor Mulvany redirected a Killian Walshe strike into the net and once again the sides were level. Despite having two excellent chances at goal to close the game in the dying minutes, neither side could manage to close the game. In a finger nail biting penalty shoot-out Colaiste Eoin took the game, thanks to a magnificent shot by Aaron Kelly and excellent goal keeping skills from emergency keeper Killian Walshe. The boys were delighted and well done also to coach and mentor Mr Higgins.
