18th March 13 - Rangers LFP 1, Dundrum FC 3.
(submitted by Niall & James McCormick, U7)

On a cold wintry morning the players arrived full of excitement. Star Manager Dave and Super Tactician Brendan set about selecting the starting eight, which was as follows:-

 

Goalkeeper:     Kevin

Defenders:    Lorcan, Cathal, Jacob

Midfield:    James, Zack

Strikers:    Niall and Scott

 

Dundrum started brightly with lots of attacking football. After five minutes Niall slotted home from 10 yards to put Dundrum 1-0 up. The opposition were not going to lay down and attacked looking for the equaliser but Man of the Match ‘Kevin’ was in exceptional form again. On 9 minutes a great ball played from midfield by James released Zack who scored a fantastic volley in the top corner, certainly a contender for goal of the season. Half time 2-0 up.

 

The second half was always going to be tough playing against the strong wind. James made way for Michael and Jacob entered the game also. Rangers pushed forward looking a goal but the Dundrum defence was excellent. After another failed attack by Rangers, Dundrum FC broke forward and Niall scored the third goal, his second of the day, into the bottom corner. Joe came on for Scott and James also came back on. Rangers scored with 10 minutes left but Dundrum FC held on for a fantastic win away from home.

 

Man of the Match:    Kevin

Scores:    Niall 2, Zack 1

 

11th March 13 - Dundrum FC 1, Cabinteely Boys FC 4.
(submitted by Brendan Costello, U7)

Well the day started off full of excitement and fun in the dressing room with the usual team talk, " have you seen sponge bob," and " you have a girlfriend, nah nah nana nah". then game time arrived and a more serious side to the morning started. Did they beat us the last time and have they got the big fella with them. Our team line up started as follows, GK Kevin Murtagh, Def: Lorcan, Zach, Big Luke, Donegal James. Fwd: Scott & Little Luke.

The game took off at a great pace and for the first ten minutes we looked like we had finally cracked the pass and move drill. Then it happened Cabinteelys big number 10 broke through and caught us off guard one nil. Heads up and back to it. Again Lorcan Kissane, one of the smaller players in height in the field played like a man 10 feet tall. He made tackles Paul McGrath would have been proud off. But it was only a matter of time before he could do no more as last man back. 15mins gone and 2 nil. Still Dundrum kept the heads up and back to the centre for another go.

Again the deficit of Goals was kept to this small margin through a combination of crucial tackles from Lorcan and probably the best goalkeeping display from any keeper in the club. Kevin Murtagh found his wings and boy did he use them. well done Kev. Half time 2-0 to Cabinteely.


Second half got off to a slow start with Dundrum pressing all the time. Donegal James was replaced by his twin Niall and this seemed to boost the two forwards to a new level. Having run the length of the pitch in the 1st half, both Scott and Little Luke were showing signs of slowing. Then the managers Bren and Dave made the switch of the game. Big Luke was subbed for Little Joe. Supposed to play in midfield he took it upon himself to be an attacking forward and before we could yell "Get Back" he put Scott through on a inch perfect pass past the last defender. Scott shoots beats the keeper only to have the post save it, back out to him and again his foot was sweet and the defender handled on the line. PENALTY was the roar from the Dundrum FC supporters. Many hands went up for the privelage but Scott was nominated. With ice cold precision he put the ball in the top of the net straight over the keeper. 3-1 it was like a cup final, was it to be reminiscent of Istanbul?, well no but it was as good to them.

Within minutes Dundrum FC's goal was being peppered with shots and again Kev was equal to each one. Just before the whistle was blown Cabinteely netted number 4 but this was not to dampen the performance of the team. Whistle gone match over and once again the Dundrum FC players were the first to offer hand shakes and congrats to their victors. Our 1st home defeat of the season. Man of the match was well deserved and awarded to Kevin Murtagh in goals to be known from now on as Kev the Eagle. See you wednesday for training.
