On Thursday our 1st Years began their Shield campaign against Marcy SS, Kilbeggan in Killeshin FC. 


It was CBS that started the strongest and within 4 minutes Eoin Fitzpatrick found the net to put CBS in front. From here the tide turned and within a ten minute spell of attack from Mercy SS, the CBS found themselves 3-1 down. It was Mercy SS that would find the net again with a strike from outside the box finding the bottom corner. Mark Roberts slotted a cross from Danny Breen past the keeper to leave the CBS 4-2 down at half time. Just like the 1st the CBS started the 2nd half the strongest, but this time they didn’t relent, led by strong performances from Mark Roberts, Eoin Fitzpatick, Adam Whelan & Ethan O Connor. It was another touch of class by Eoin Fitzpatrick that brought CBS back within one of the visitors. Again the CBS kept the pressure on coming close to equalising on several occasions , but it was Adam McDonald that pounced on a dropping ball in the box to level the sides with 5 minutes to go. More chances came and went with Eoin Fitzpatrick coming close from an indirect free kick, but it was to be a last minute winner that saved CBS from extra time, when subs Killian Hendy and Ben Holohan combined in the box to secure victory for the CBS.


Well done boys!
