On Thursday 24th of January the senior boys soccer team participated in a semi final which they won 3-1. It was a tight first half with the opposition coming close to scoring but the best chance of the game falling to Stephen Anderson from a corner with the keeper making an outstanding save. At the break it was 0-0.
The second half started off well for Davids with them dominating and looking to score. Finally Eoghan O’ Lonaigh opening the scoring from an unbelievable goal from outside the box straight into the top corner. The opposition didn’t look like scoring apart from set pieces. They did eventually find the back of the net from a free kick. At the end of the second half it ended 1-1 which meant the game required extra time.
During extra time Shaun Cranley hit the ball straight from kick off which flew over the keepers head and went straight into the net. Davids never looked like slipping up again and with minutes left Shaun Cranley gets a lucky bounce off of the defender and he was through on goal. He stopped the ball dead and chipped it over the keeper to make it 3-1.
It was an outstanding performance from the lads with star performances coming from Roy Byrne, Shaun Cranley, Daire Devine, Eoghan O’ Longaigh and Marc Lynch.
