Peamount U14 Major.
Great 2-1 win away to a strong Leixlip Utd. on Saturday in our first game of the season. Peamount dominated from early on and played with an air of confidence and determination. The lead was taken after a great through ball from Aran Murray to Conor Jameson, who with still a bit of work to do, blasted the ball into the top right corner. Indeed the lead should have been increased on several occasions only to be denied by the post twice and saves by the Leixlip keeper.
The second half was a more intense encounter and with Peamount pressing to increase their lead, Leixlip equalised on the break. Despite conceding the goal, the team spirit of Peamount never deflated. Instead they showed their true character and with the game looking certain for a draw, they dug deep and again Aran Murray played another delightful through ball to Adam Mooney, who with a sweet left foot strike, found the bottom right hand corner of the Leixlip net with 2 minutes left on the clock. In the dying moments of the game Leixlip won a free on the right wing and from the resulting free kick, Peamount Goal Keeper Gavin McConville soared through the air and pulled the high delivery into his safe clutches. With that the ref blue his whistle to finish the game.
After their first loss of the season to Newbridge last Wednesday our senior men bounced back with a thrilling 3 2 win against local rivals Lucan Utd. Goals by Ian Cowzer , Jim Fitz and Glen Kelly 12 points after 5 games, well done Maxi and team , follow us for more updates on @peamountutd
17 Super make a confident startOur under 17 Super side began their Group D campaign with a well deserved home win against Shelbourne FC. Following a bright start the home side were nearly off the mark in the opening minutes when a great build up saw Alex Carr almost open his account. Peamount continued the build on the strong start with Jordan Sangari and Eoin Hunter creating chances down the left flank. The home side took the lead on 17 minutes after a great build up and combination involving Eoin Hunter, Cian Lynch to set Alex Carr free who confidently rounded the keeper and score from an acute angle. Peamount should have increased the lead when another goal bound effort clipped the post. Peamount’s second was a brilliantly worked goal with great interplay ending with an pin point cross from Eoin Hunter for Alex Carr to head home from close range. Shelboune were limited to very few chances but did get a goal against the run of play when poor marking at the back post from a corner allowed a soft score for the visitors. The home side forced several corners and saw Joe Weldon go close with a headed effort and another chance cleared off the line with Shels keeper beaten. The only other down downside of the first half was the injury to Dylan Hennesey. Get well soon Dylan.The second half followed a similar pattern with Peamount dominant and creative in the attacking third. Keeper Paddy Pender maintained his concentration and showed excellent agility to make a point blank save from one of Shelboure’s rare attacks. On the hour mark a defence splitting pass and great footwork saw Alex Carr race into the box only to be taken down by the retreating Shelbourne defender resulting in a penalty and the player being sent off. Eoin Hunter stepped forward and converted the penalty restoring the two goal lead. Sam Jordan delivered an excellent passing display in the centre of the park aided by a strong performance by Florin Ilies. Cian Lynch was unlucky not to score when his goal bound effort was cleared off the line. Defenders Ryan Mc Grane and Craig Mc Loughlin were solid at full back. Peamount continued to create chances with shots from Jordan Sangari and Eoin Hunter going close. This was a result built on strong defence led by Daniel Gaffney and Brian Abejide and good all round team work rate.Peamount 3 Shlebourne 1Scorers : Alex Carr (2) Eoin Hunter (1) PenTeam – Paddy Pender, Dylan Hennesey, Brian Abejide, Daniel Gaffney, Craig Mc Loughlin, Joe Weldon, Sam Jordan, Jordan Sangari, Eoin Hunter, Cian Lynch, Alex Carr – Subs all used Ciaran Daniels, Cezar Murariu, George Kenny, Florin Ilies and Ryan Mc Grane.
