    Limekiln 5 – 2 Terenure FC 3rds

    Writing these reports is starting to become some sort of ritual torture at this stage. With an ever deepening injury crisis there was a danger we wouldn’t be able to field a team at all for this game, but a few of the lads from the seconds came out and did us a favour, despite their own huge relegation decider looming on Wednesday. Even with the number of changes to the team, including my own first start in a month, it was pretty much the same old story. We tried to play nice football but made too many basic errors and a very organised and experienced Limekiln side capitalised on them.


    Down 3 – 0 at half time things were looking grim, but we made a perfect start to the second half, a good move down the left, crossed deep to the back post by Brian O’Connor and squared by Anto O’Dea to Ross Hannigan who kept his cool and finished nicely. Following the goal we had a good fifteen minute spell where it looked like we might be really going to make a game of it and Limekiln started to look less assured but the game was killed by a long range strike that deceived Dylan in goal and sneaked in past the post when it looked like it was going wide.

    As we went more and more gung-ho Limekiln were getting more chances and they added a fifth when a fairly straight forward free kick into the box wasn’t dealt with and was headed home easily. There was to be one other bright flash for us before the end, when Brian O’Connor picked the ball up about 35 yards out and decided to have a shot that flew into the net, leaving the keeper floundering.

    Our last game of the season will be next Wednesday against the same opposition. If Three Trout beat Grant City in their last game we would need a point to finish level with them and possibly face a relegation play-off, or a win would leave us safe regardless.
