KDSL U16 – Kilcock Celtic 3 Edenderry 0

13th Feb 2010. Both teams started well in this morning encounter as they each strived to gain an early advantage. See MATCH REPORT section for full report..

The home team soon began to dominate midfield and the first real chance fell to Celtic in the seventh minute. Adam Leonard weighted pass, released Conor Dully up the left wing. Dully rounded the defence but his shot from an acute angle scraped off the crossbar.
Within minutes the visitors won a free kick on the edge of the Kilcock box. The resulting in- swinger forced a brave save from Elliot Fowler, deputising in the Celtic goal.
After twenty minutes of sustained pressure Celtic opened the scoring when Leon Glennon got on the end of a long Neil Vorster throw-in. Glennon turned neatly and blasted the ball home from ten yards.
Edenderry fought hard to get back in the game and Tafeeq Kenny was involved in all their attacks but a well marshalled home defence prevented any clear goal scoring opportunities.
With ten minutes remaining to the break Celtic won a corner on the left. Adam Leonard’s late run nearly produced dividends when he met the dropping ball at the back post but his header went just inches wide.
After the interval the home team tightened the screw and were awarded after eight minutes when Shaun Maguire neatly set up Eoin McArdle on the edge of the box. McArdle hit the ball on the half-volley and give the diving keeper no chance.
Edenderry always looked dangerous on the counter attack and their best chance fell midway through the second period. Cormac Hurley released Mark Nolan in on goal but Fowler left his line to snuff out the danger.
Neil Vorster was unluckily not to get on the score-sheet when he dribbled past three defenders but his chip shot went just wide of the post.
Cathal McCabe finished off a fine performance for Celtic when he got on the end of a Vorster corner and his powerful shot was driven to the roof of the net.
Edenderry never gave up and Dane Hoban had to make a fine intercepting tackle to deny Tafeeq Kenny a scoring opportunity.
Best for Edenderry were Cormac Hurley and Tafeeq Kenny while Niall Walker and Dafydd Jones were excellent in defence for Celtic.
