U13 Samphires 4 v 3 LB Rovers (Scorers Aaron Harty (2), Tom Quilter(2))
The 13s started the new season with a win at home vs LB Rovers. Both teams set out their stall early to play a passing game it was a good game all through. LB took the lead with a good counter attack at pace. We equalised through Aaron Harty who was menacing throughout and Tom Quilter deservedly gave us the lead just before half time. Aaron was on the mark again just after half time and were looking good with Jack Dwyer in goals, Jack and Charlie Nolan, Dominic Regan, Jack MacCarthy, Tomás Godley and Cian McKenna solid at the back. In the middle Rory Boyd, Tiernan O’Sullivan and Billy Doyle had good games with Tom Quilter and Jayden Deady raiding on the wings supplying the crosses. We conceded a harsh penalty in the middle of the second half to make it 3-2 but we redoubled our efforts and Tom restored our 2 goal advantage with 10 to go. LB scored in the last minute but we held on in injury time to win 4-3.
