Glin Rovers B V Broadford B Write up 24/8/13

Glin Rovers B V Broadford b 4-2 ( B Costello, A Mulvihill, J Costello (2).
A Great start for the B team in the league this past sunday with a fine performance for the entire team in what was Bill Culhane and Sean Mulvihill’s first competitive game as B Mngt. As early as the third minute we had a chance when the lively Aidan Mulvihill sent in jack costello on goal but his shot on goal was blocked for a corner. From the corner Barclay Costello (who had a great game today) was unlucky not to score from a fumble from their keeper who recovered in time to smother Barclays shot. We went ahead when Aidan Mulvihill showed good instinct, following in on Barclays shot on goal which the keeper spilled he swooped like an eagle on its prey and dispatched the ball to the back of the net to give Glin B the lead. Predator insticts from Aidan Mullvihill. Barclay duly followed up with a fine goal of his own on 30 mins from outside the box. Broadfords main threat came from corners in the first half and made it 2-1 on 34 mins when they pounced to score from a corner. David Fitzgerald made a crucial tackle on 38 mins to keep Broadford out. Olly Mulvihill replaced Dave Fitzgerald at half time. Barclay costello had a shot saved by the keeper on 50 mins from a pa killeen shot (pa actually played 3 games today, for Glin A, Glin B and Glin Junior B GAA team – Some commitment from PK). Jack Costello had a shot saved by the keeper on 54 mins and Kieran McMahons (who was having a fine game today) follow up shot was deflected for a corner. Jamie Rae came on for P Killen on 59 mins. Jack Costello got our third goal following some fierce work by olly wallace on 60 mins. 3-1 to glin with 30 mins left. Paddy Fitzgerald came on for Barclay Costello after 65 mins. Jack Costello scored a second on 67 mins to make it 4-1 with a strong run in to the box and a fine finish. Sean Lyons made a fine save on 84 mins to tip the ball over the crossbar for a corner and Broadford got a consolation goal with a few mins left to leave the final result 4-2. It was a fine performance today from the B team. Joe Stack and Oakley Costello played well today aided by the experience of Dave Fitzgerald and Player Manager Sean Mulvihill today. Our midfield of Aidan, Olly, Kieran McMahon & Pa Killeen were excellent today while up front the Costello boys were outstanding. The B team have a great bench and to have 10 players like Paddy Fitzgerald, Olly Mulvihill, Dave O Sullivan, Bobby Ryan, Pat O Shaughnessy, Jamie Rae, Joe Wallace, Karol Geoghegan, Fionn Geoghegan and Peter Cooke will stand to them in their push for Division 3 honours this year.
Team: Sean Lyons, Sean Mulvihill, Joe Stack, Dave Fitzgerald, Oakley Costello, Aidan Mulvihill, Olly Wallace, K McMahon, P Kileen, B Costello, J Costello.
