A very tough encounter this was for the joeys under 14`s. The game started with the home side putting the pressure on early and Joeys were finding it hard to deal with the height and physical advantage the home side had but to their credit when they did get to play some football they did it well and took the lead through a Jac Walker goal .The home side came back and leveled the game when they scored with a free kick H/T 1-1. The second half saw St Joseph’s very much in the game and again took the lead when Arnas Karalius scored but just couldn’t hold onto the lead and the home side scored again to level the game again and it finished a draw it was a good result for the young joeys team after being up against it for some spells of the game F/T 2-2.
Best Players : Patrick Regan, Hubert Mazur, Arnas Ubartas.
Joeys U16s played at home to Killeshin and settled quickly into the game. They created a number of chances in the first 30 mins and were eventually rewarded when David Quinn found the back of the net. Killeshin broke a few times but failed to break the solid defence of Jacob O’Brien, Sean Rourke and Ted Brophy, leaving it 1 nil at the break. The second half and Joeys added a second when Daniel Giedraitis converted. A determined Killeshin kept battling and were rewarded with a goal by Graeme Harland. The final goal of the game came from a well taken free kick by Joeys captain Jacob O’Brien which dipped under the crossbar. To make it 3-1 at the end. Credit to both teams for an enjoyable game of football. Best for St. Joseph’s were Cian Shannon, Evan McGuire and keeper Eoin Woods.
This game was an exciting game from the off with two teams playing for a chance to progress in the SFAI Cup. But today was not Joeys day to progress in the cup. But they did progress as a team in a lot of areas with 3 very good goals been scored by the team .
Bohemians took the lead mid way through the first half but Joeys scored quickly to level from a corner scored by Jack Dunne . But Bohemians scored two late goals to lead 3-1 at half time.
What ever happened at half time worked for Bohemians because they scored 4 quick goals with no response from Joeys. That killed off the game ,pride was at stake now . Joeys in fairness scored 2 lovely goals one from Alan Bohanna and a lovely team goal from Fiacc Brennan . The final score was 3-8 to Bohemians .
Special thanks to all the team parents who supplied food and help after the game ,.Much appreciated by us and by Bohemians .Thank you.
We would like to wish Bohemians the best of luck in the SFAI cup.

St. Joseph’s 3 – St. Anne’s 3
It was an entertaining first half with both sides enjoying much of the football.
St. Josephs took the lead 5 mins into the game with great play by Eddie Lyons on the wing who fed through a swift low ball to David Townsend who neatly stuck the ball to the bottom corner of the net.
The game remained balanced for the remainder of the half however St. Anne’s did rattle the crossbar midway through the game. With 5 mins remaining St. Anne’s were awarded a penalty for a hand ball inside the square following a corner. Goal for St. Anne’s and the sides were level. However the half wasn’t over yet and from the tip off st. Joseph’s pushed on and once again it David Townsend inside penalty box who was taken down and penalty for St. Josephs.
Townsend scored and St. Josephs went in at half time 2-1 up.
In the second half St. Anne’s pushed on for an equaliser and got it when a well struck free kick was put away over the unfortunate st. Joseph’s goalkeeper Danny Moran.
With only 10 mins to go St. Anne’s went ahead following a mix up in the St. Josephs defence and it was an own goal by Padraig Delaney that put St. Anne’s ahead.
It wasn’t over yet and with 5 mins to go St. Josephs fought back and scored with a well taken header by center back Trevor O’Reilly.
The game finished shortly after this and both sides were delighted to come away with a point considering the efforts they made in the game.

Those that played well for St. Josephs were Trevor O’Reilly, John Paul Moore, Conor Dooley and David Townsend.
