Killarney Athletic 3 Tralee Dynamos 0

Overall a scoreline that doesn’t do justice to the efforts of a Dynamos team who recalled a number of players. Credit to each one of the Dynamos players for their efforts in what is a difficult time for the seniors.

Killarney Athletic who top the table extending their lead tonight to 4 from Fenit and 6 ahead of Killarney Celtic and LIstowel Celtic with those sides having a game in hand.

The balance of possession was pretty equal for both sides both having spells of dominance in the game. The big talking point of the game was the opening goal for Athletic in the 33rd minute when the Dynamos line confidently called for offside but match official waved play on for Athletic to score despite the protestations of the Dynamos team and bench.

Half time the scoreline was 1 nil in favour of Athletic but Dynamos had enough play to suggest that they might get some thing from the game.

Dynamos had a huge chance with a James Sugrue cross into the box controlled by Roche 6 yards from goal and some how keeper Quill saved. Athletic got their 2nd goal on the 70th minute when a shot from distance was parried into path of the Athletic striker who slotted to the net.

The game seems to lose its spark from here with few chances created by either side with probably Jamie Doolan’s effort from 30 yards clipping the crossbar the best.

Athletic completed the scoring with the very last kick of the game to claim a well deserved victory. Dynamos with 3 games remaining will have a say in where the title goes with home games against Fenit & Kenmare and meet Listowel Celtic away.

Tralee Dynamos: Gary Sugrue, Sean Foley, Jonathan Burrows, Mark Fitzgerald, Barry O’Shea, Tony Duggan, James Sugrue, Oliver Coffey, John Foley, Danny Roche, Dylan O’Shea (Ross

COUCHMAN SPECTACTULAR GOAL SENDS DYNAMOS ON THEIR WAY

UNDER 17 PREMIER
Listowel Celtic 0 Tralee Dynamos 3

Congrats to our young Dynamos side who put in a top class performance this evening in Tanavalla.

Dynamos had the greater share of possession in the 1st half creating some really good chances. Midfield duo of David O’Connor and Sean Foley determined the trend of the game getting the ball down and playing a really good possession game. Junior Ankomah replaced David in the second half with Sean keeping Dynamos on the front foot througout.

Half time the sides were level at 0-0 with Dynamos slightly disappointed that they hadn’t got something to show for their efforts.

Dynamos opened the scoring in the 2nd half with a spectacular goal from David Couchman after really good work down the right flank by Tennyson Efegbare who got past his man passing a diagonal forward ball into Leo Gaxha on the edge of the box. As the ball was travelling towards Leo he got a call from Couchman looking for a setup pass that Leo duly obliged with and from there just the quality of the strike there was only one outcome with Couchmans shots hitting the top left hand corner of the net.

To be fair to Mark Loughnanes side they had a share of play in the final 3rd but great defending from Aaron Dewey and man of the match Eddie Galvin and with keeper Dylan O’Shea in fine form they denied Listowel time and time again.

Dynamos scored their second with a lot of good work from Adi Cenali setting up Leo Gaxha whose close control inside the box creating space for himself he rifled to the net to make it 0-2 Dynamos with a couple of minutes left.

Tony Duggan completed the scoring with a fantastic individual goal getting on the ball on the left wing just inside the Listowel half where he won a 50-50 ball with his opponent where his drive and determination saw him win another 40-60 challenge from the 2nd challenge before he gathered his composure to side foot to the net from a really tight angle for a great individual goal.

SQUAD: Dylan O’Shea, Ronan Lucey, Aaron Dewey, Eddie Galvin, Tony Duggan, Tennyson Efegbare, David O’Connor, Sean Foley, Ozaz Odiahi, David Couchman, Adi Cenali, Ronan Lucey, Leo Gaxha, Junior Ankomah, Nemanja Samardzic.

REPORT: U15s beat Norway in Prague Tournament

The Republic of Ireland Under 15s produced an outstanding display to beat Norway 4-1 in their opening game at an invitational tournament in Prague
18th Apr 2017

Jason Donohue’s side bagged four first-half goals to take control of the tie and will go into Thursday’s deciding game against the Czech Republic hosts, who beat the Norwegians 4-3 last Sunday.

Seamus Keogh had Ireland’s first attempt on goal in the 10th minute but it was not long before Ireland went 1-0 up through Sean Kennedy when he found the net with a low strike in the 13th minute.

Keogh had a header saved two minutes later before Kennedy shot narrowly wide in the 18th minute. Norway had an attempt on goal in the 20th minute when Lars Christian Moudestad had a shot from distance held by Ireland keeper Jimmy Corcoran.

Kennedy added a second in the 25th minute when he was played through by Matthew Everitt and poked past the advancing keeper.

Ronan McKinley increased the Irish lead in the 36th minute when he dispossessed keeper Vegard Storsve and turned the ball home into an empty net.

Three minutes later Everitt marked his debut with a goal after McKinley’s initial effort came back off the Norwegian crossbar.

Everitt had another effort saved five minutes into the second half then Irish keeper Corcoran had a couple of stops before Simon Bakken grabbed a consolation goal with a low strike in the last minute.

“Our first half performance was exceptionally good. We played really well and scored at good times. We had a good defensive shape and scored some good goals,” said Ireland Head Coach Jason Donohue.

“The Norwegian coach couldn’t believe how well we played and said it was like men against boys at times in the first half which is a great compliment to the players.

“In the second half, they pressed us really well and forced us to go a bit longer. We conceded in injury time and it shows the character of the lads how disappointed they were to concede that goal.

“We looked a threat every time we went forward in the first half. Matt Everitt had an exceptional debut. Sean Kennedy and Ronan McKinley also produced some excellent moments.

“I’m extremely pleased for the boys to get a win after a couple of draws. They have been improving and the hard work is paying off.

“They looked a really good team today and now it’ll be a different test against the Czechs who’ll have had four days rest by the time Thursday game comes around.”

Republic of Ireland: Corcoran; Dunne (O’Callaghan 71), Sobowale, Funge, Holt; Healy (McEvoy 62), Keogh, McKinley (Parrott 62); Kennedy (Guirgi 71), Everitt (Furlong 65), Okoflex.
