Creeves Celtic 0-2 Breska Rovers
Our junior team returned to competitive action last weekend and also started the season with a fine win over Creeves. Having lost on the opening day last season, it was important to recognise the need for a good start. And, fresh with a superb looking new kit, sponsored by BHP, we were deserving winners, this despite finishing with 10 men.
Niall Quane opened his account with a free-kick in the first few minutes. Sean Healy would add a second late in the game to kill off the Creeves challenge. Next up is a Munster Junior Cup tie in Ashford, against St Ita’s – who like Creeves, were promoted from division two.
Breska Rovers: James Purcell; Diarmuid O’Connor, James Kennedy, Conor McCarthy, Nigel Mann; Robert O’Grady, Nathan Sheehan, Sean Healy, TJ O’Connor, Josh Fitzgerald; Niall Quane
Subs: David Fitzgerald for Nigel Mann, Ger Mullins for Robert O’Grady
Carrig Celtic B 3-4 Breska Rovers B
Our B team opened their campaign with a hard fought 4-3 win over Creeves. The game proved to be an entertaining affair, despite the constant mist in Carrickerry. Having led 1-0 through Ethan Keyes after a lovely Jack Moroney assist, Carrig hit twice in five minutes to lead at the break.
Keyes would hit the bar twice, once either side of the interval, before we would equalise. A Declan Normoyle pass was finished by Leonard Coughlan after good work by Josh Moloney.
Evergreen Coughlan showed his class to add two more to complete his hat-trick before Carrig pulled a goal back with the last action of the game.
Breska Rovers: Seamie Lyons; Ben Adams, Tommy Collery, Declan Normoyle (c), Sean Gormley; Keith Punch, Tom Clancy, Jack Moroney, Ethan Keyes; Leonard Coughlan, Josh Moloney
Subs: Dylan Kelly for Jack Moroney, Orin Garvey for Josh Moloney.
