    UCFL Div 3. Shield

    Three Trout Rovers 3 - 5 Terenure FC 3rds

    I never like missing games and that especially goes for games we win, but I was delighted to hear the news from Greystones on Saturday. According to reports the referee was fairly reluctant to allow the game to go ahead due to the rapidly deteriorating conditions on the Wicklow coast but with the teams eager to go ahead the standing water was ignored.


    Terenure started well but as has so often been the case no reward was forthcoming and Three Trout broke the deadlock when they caught our defence flat footed. The response was immediate, however, and David Fennelly finished from close range after a move down the right.

    It wasn't long before Trout retook the lead though, once again a ball over the top causing a problem and resulting in a goal. This team is developing a good spirit and that showed as they again bounced straight back, Danny McKeuige hitting a great strike from 25 yards to ensure parity at half time.

    Terenure made a bright start to the second half and this time it paid off with Daire Burns scoring twice in quick succession to leave Trout needing something special to get back into the game. Trout emptied the bench and the fresh legs gave them impetus on the heavy pitch, with only 11 available for Terenure they started to feel the pressure and when Trout got one back the closing stages promised to be nervy. Despite tiredness and the concession of a goal Terenure kept their composure on the ball and continued to create chances themselves and in injury time Fiachra Fitzpatrick deservedly broke his duck for the season and sealed a deserved victory.

    The win leaves us sitting nicely on top of our shield group but another win in tonight's (Monday) game away to Walkinstown would really put is in a good position to make the shield final. The first league encounter with Walkinstown was a tight and tough affair so we know what to expect, hopefully legs are not too heavy from the weekend’s efforts.
