Soccer: Castle Celtic took on Killorglin B today in Killorglin's "Dragons Den" Astro Turf pitch.

FT Castle Celtic 6 - 0 Killorglin B.

This game was a slow burner for the first half, with Castle threatening Killorglin’s goal on many occasions, and finally Castles Pressure got its reward, when a clearance from Killorglin’s right back found its way to feet of Shane Kenny in the heart of Castles, and with a beautiful left legged cross into Killorglin’s penalty box, the ball fell to the feet of Maurice Slattery, who still had a lot to do, holding off the defender, and showing some promising footwork that might get him a call up for the next Strictly, he found a yard of space, and with no mistake flashed the ball passed the Keeper.

Castle also had a penalty claim dismissed in the dying moments of the first half, when young Michael Scanlon got the ball in the centre of the park and was bearing down on goal and must have had a saddle on his back, as the Killorglin midfielder taught he was at Cheltenham. Play on waved the ref, the ball ended up at the feet of Brandon Hoare, his effort missing the top corner by a lot…..

HT Castle Celtic 1 - 0 Killorglin B

Castles second goal did come shortly after the break, with massive words of wisdom and encouragement from our manager Yoda, A through ball finally found Brandon Hoare onside (for I’m guessing the first time in the game) he coolly slotted the ball into the back of the net.

The game started to open up more as Killorglin were searching for something out of the game, With Killorglin attacking down the right wing some superb defending from Steven Speirs and Damien McMahon hampered Killorglin’s attack and immediately launched Castle on the counter, with the ball out of defence (NOT Hacked away this time) found the feet of Brandon Hoare on the left wing, he lifted the head up and spread a pass like butter across the field to Maurice Slattery to run onto, Maurice unleashed a rocket of a shot passed the Keeper who was rooted to the spot.

Castle wanting more, applying massive pressure all over the park, a quick Killorglin free kick was intercepted by Enda Whelan who quickly hoisted the ball over the head of Killorglin’s last defender finding Brandon Hoare in a one on one with the Keeper, after rounding the Keeper finished his second with ease.

With time running out in the game there was still enough for two flashes of brilliance from Michael Scanlon, he didn’t know he was left legged until he kicked with his right.

Michael’s first goal came from about 25 yards out, the Ball broke out to him in the middle of the park shifting the ball quickly onto his left leg he placed the ball low into the bottom corner giving the Keeper no chance.

Michael’s second goal mirrored the first one, only this time he struck it well with his right leg.  In the last two minutes of the game, Castle had a throw near Killorglin’s corner flag, Enda Whelan flicked the ball on to find Thomas Butler unmarked three yards out from goal, Poor auld Thomas being so tall must be still affected by Storm Callum miss kicked the ball, bouncing the ball off the Keeper, the ball was cleared out by a Killorglin defender which landed at the feet of Michael Scanlon who this time 30 yards out shifted the ball to his right left and place it into the opposite corner to his first.

Castle’s work rate throughout the game reflected in the score line, with Castles defence standing firm throughout the game under the wizardry of Magic Alan McNamara , Shane Kenny, Cormac Cronin and Damien McMahon
