Halftime: Athboy Celtic 0-3 Trim Celtic
Scorers for Trim: Jack Reilly (2), Gareth White
Trim U13s got off to a great start for the season with an away win against the team that won the league last year. Trim took the lead after 10mins with Conor Henebery receiving the ball down the wing from Aaron Winters. Conor then crossed the ball in for Gareth White to meet it with a successful diving header at the near post . Trim continued to push Athboy down with every attack. It was not long before Trim scored again with great play in the mid field by Aaron Winters. He played the ball to Jack Reilly who kept a cool head and rounded the keeper to slot the ball home. Trim continued to press and it wasn’t long before Trim got a third goal with another cool finish by Jack Reilly. Trim did not want the first half to end as they continued to play some outstanding football, with Ciaran O’Rourke continually causing the Athboy defence all sorts of problems. The second half belonged to Athboy who pushed continually for a goal to get them back into the game. With 15mins left Athboy got a break through and scored. Trim’s defence held strong until the last minute when they conceded another goal. It was all too late for Athboy with the final whistle being blown at 3-2. The defensive performance by all the lads in the back four in the second half was fantastic to keep Athboy at bay. Fantastic start to the season and it was a great team effort.
