3/5/2018 Match Report U10 Boys Eadestown v Confey
After a break for the Punchestown Festival, tonight saw the return of the thoroughbreds that are the Eadestown U10 boys as they travelled to the Kildare/Dublin border to
take on a determined Confey outfit.
Eadestown started in blistering fashion with Conor Morrin scoring a goal in the opening minute. This was quickly followed by scores from Daniel Sargent and his namesake Adam ‘Bomber’ Sargent.
Next to take centre stage for the Eadestown boys were the dancing feet of the little maestro Oscar Gough, with three beautifully worked scores. Not to be outdone, Daniel Sargent stepped up with two more scores before a quick brace from The Bomber put further daylight between the sides.
Evan Cahill then joined in the fun with some lovely points and the half finished with a flurry of scores for the boys in blue, courtesy of Oscar & Alfie Gough, Ruairi Flynn and the man of the moment Adam Sargent, fittingly scoring the last point of the half.
The second half started as the first had ended, with Eadestown in the ascendency. Adam Sargent opening the scoring with a lovely point. Then Anna Hines stepped up to take her moment in the spotlight. With a majestic strike of her left boot Anna scored a goal from so far out that the ball seemed to pass through three time zones before crossing the line and nestling in the back of the net. Not resting on her laurels, Anna then added another couple of scores.
With Ruairi Flynn reading the game as smoothly as a seasoned newscaster reading the day’s headlines, Eadestown continued to dominate. Further scores from Dan Sargent, Ronan Walsh, Conor Morrin and Alfie Gough saw Eadestown lengthen their stride and gallop further into an unassailable lead.
Despite all that they faced Confey never gave up and fought to the end. Their attackers must’ve felt like they would have to get Oisin Touhy surgically removed from their person, such was his limpet-like marking. But they got a couple of nice scores that their determination merited. A final score for our boys from Oscar Gough brought the curtain down on an incredible display of attacking football from this group of amazing athletes.
Well done to our boys in blue
