Academy U-7 and U-8 Perfect weather for soccer greeted our under 7’s and 8’s for the visit of LB Rovers at the IT North Campus Astroturf pitch. We had enough players for two 5-a-side teams at u-8 and one 7-a-side at u-7 so everyone played a full game. At u-8 Saoirse, the birthday girl, captained her team. LB Rovers proved to be tough opposition and good teamwork was needed to make any breakthrough. A great range of skills were on display by both clubs and those to shine for Dynamos were Cillian, Ben, Nick, Saoirse, Ciaran, Rae, Fionn, Sean, Dara and Rory.
U-14 Cup : Dynamos advanced to the Quarter-Final of the Cup with a narrow 5-4 victory over Ballyhar at Cahermoneen last Saturday. In what was a nine goal goalfest Dynamos at times looked very comfortable but allowed a very game Ballyhar side back into the game on no fewer than three occasions. But ultimately, Dynamos were just about the better side with Man-of-the-Match Daniel Burke netting four goals and Sean Horan bagging the fifth. Best for Dynamos on the day was the aforementioned Danny as well as Philip Evans and Andy Rogers in mid-field and Washington Solomon in defence.
U-16 Cup : Dynamos received a walk-over from Iveragh Utd who were unable to field a team and thus the Reds advanced to the next round of the Cup.
Team of the Week : Congrats and well done to Danny Burke for being selected on the Kerry Schoolboys/Girls League team of the Week after netting four goals in Dynamos cup victory last Saturday.
