Tramore 1 Carrick United 1

This top of the table clash ended in stalemate. The home side played some lovely football carving open the Carrick defence twice in the opening spell and really should have been in front. However Carrick kept working hard and went one up after Shane Butler finished well 15 minutes before the break. Immediately afterwards Adrian Walsh produced a quite wonderful save to deny the home side yet again. As the rain made the pitch very slippery the pace dropped in the second half. Carrick denied the home side clear opportunities until a shot took a wicked deflection past Adrian Walsh with 20 minutes left to tie up matters. As the mist got heavier the home side had more of the ball but few clear changes were created in the final spell. This result keeps both sides locked together on ten points each with four games played. Carrick having played away three times already.

Carrick United 2 Southend 1

Going in at half time it was 0-0. We had dominated the first half but couldn’t get a goal to show for it. As soon as the second half started Southend scored a goal to take the lead. The boys stuck to their game and goals from Ben O’Connell and Sean Daley gave a well deserved win. Tommy Mullins and Kieran Barry both put in man of the match performances.

Under 11 B League

Mooncoin 5 Carrick Utd 1

There was much improvement from the boys in what was only their second taste of league football. Although trailing by two goals at half time the players never showed signs of giving up. Relentless battling from Hugh Horgan, Eimhin Hanrahan and Michael Cody in defence kept Mooncoin at bay for large parts of the game. However despite efforts from keepers Jack Walsh and Caleb Shortis, the home team managed to hit five from some great link up play and finishing. Carrick had a penalty won and drilled home by Mark McCoy which was created from a nice build up between brother Carl and midfielders Jamie Cronin and Leon Kennedy. Efforts were made to change the game by bringing on fresh legs in Anthony Power and Lorcan Walsh however the home side were too strong in the end.
