Another strong performance and good win today for Peamount U14 Major side against Leixlip Utd. which brings Peamount’s tally of 5 wins from 6 in the U14 Major League.On a perfect day for football at Greenogue, Peamount started very strongly, comfortably passing the ball around with purpose and exposed the Leixlip backline from early on with the pace of their 2 frontmen, who between them had Peamount 5 – 0 up after 25 minutes with Conor Jameson scoring a hatrick and Nathan Miller adding the other 2. Central midfielders Aran Murray & Calum O’Neil gave great support with a strong driving performances whilst the wing play of Ruben Masinga & Adam Mooney on the opposite flank also caused Leixlip numerous problems throughout the match.The Defence was well marshalled by captain Scott O’Brien and Conor Delaney, both of whom were fierce in the tackle. Fullbacks Matthew Long & Isaac Mooney were also impressive in defence and added to the attack with surging runs at every opportunity.Goalkeeper Gavin McConville dealt with anything that came his way while also adding to the attacking play with his accurate distribution.During the 2nd half and after making some positional switches Peamount’s performance dropped off a little bit, and conceded 3 goals, but Peamount showing the great squad character, re-grouped and added 3 more goals from subs Thomas Considine & Adam Harris, with Conor Jameson adding a 4th to his tally.Lee McEvoy & Adam Benrouguibi also impressed when coming in for the 2nd half which just shows the strength in depth with this squad this season, while also missing Conor Leigh who has been injured for the last few weeks.Team :1.
