Junior Soccer


The newest school team, the Junior Boys, coached by Ms Moore, won their first outing against Coláiste Dáibhead winning 3-2 in an exciting encounter. They then faced Mahon away, a difficult task against an established soccer school. A high-tempo, high-scoring game saw Millstreet triumph 4-3, with goals from Eoin Guiney, Darragh Cashman, Donagh Murphy and a last gasp winner from Darragh O’Riordan that qualified Millstreet for the quarter-final. They next faced Dunmanway, in an away tie. They quickly established a commanding lead with two goals from Eoin Guiney. Unfortunately, in the second half they lost the lead to a very strong team, who won two penalties and got their winner late on. It was a cruel way to end the school’s first foray into the competition but the lads are all now looking forward to getting their places on the senior panel and continuing to develop the game in the school.

Panel: Harry Linehan, Dylan Downey, Darren Kiely, Eoin Guiney, Joyce Tambwe, Dylan Kelleher, Luke O’Donoghue, Diarmuid Cronin, Sylwester Brak, Donagh Murphy, Donal Sheehan, Darragh Cashman, Omar Daly, Patrick Cronin, Darragh O’Riordan.
