Boys' Soccer Triumph

Well done to the boys' soccer team who won the Boys' Section B soccer title in the MDL.

Having qualified for the finals into a group of four, Kildalkey warmed to the task by taking on Wilkinstown. Despite conceding an early goal, Kildalkey settled well and goals from Jamie M helped them into a 5-1 half time lead. Controlling the second half well, they eased to a comfortable 8-2 win to start the competition.

The second game proved to be the tightest game of all. Rathbeggan took an early lead and despite intense Kildalkey pressure, held the lead at half time (0-1). A goal from Jamie early in the second half brought Kildalkey back into it – however, a further strike from a free kick saw Rathbeggan lead 2-1 going into the last few minutes. However, a brilliant last minute goal from Thomas saw Kildalkey salvage a 2-2 draw, which would prove to be crucial.

Knowing that they needed a win to have any chance of winning, Kildalkey started brightly and raced into a 2-0 lead. Dunboyne pulled back a goal before half time, leaving the score 2-1 at the break. However, Kildalkey upped the gears after half time and further goals from Shay, Aaron, Thomas and Jamie saw them finish 6-2 victors and the overall champions.

This was a superb victory for Kildalkey, only their second ever at this level. All the squad members contributed hugely on the day. Goalkeeper Jamie Kavanaghwas solid and consistent between the posts whiledefendersConor Barnwell and Shay Digginswere reliable throughout. Aaron PotteronConor McNally, Thomas O’Brien-McGee were dominant in midfield and kept possession very well.Strikers Jamie Murray and Caemerhon Smythscored the goals at crucial stages.

The boys now go through to the North Leinster finals on the 2nd of May - we know they'll do us proud!
