A great win for the boys against St. Mochtas played in the Sports Ireland all-weather complex in Blanchardstown.
With only the bare minimum of 7 players, they took the game to the opposition from the start with three quickfire goals from Killian, including a wonderful header from a corner delivered by Peter. St Mochtas started to get a foothold in the game but were denied a number of times by the woodwork and by some wonderful saves from Frits. Kevin and Eoin marshalled the defence and Conor and Brian were excellent on the wings. Peter (2) and Conor added goals while St Mochtas replied with an excellent team move to pull a goal back. Half time score 6-1.
St Mochtas scored right at the beginning of the second half and in little time the score was 6-6 with the boys noticeably tiring. However, Park never gave up and ground out a victory when the game seemed to be running away from them, with further goals from Conor, Peter and a last-minute winner from Brian. Kevin led the charge, with Conor, Eoin and Brian getting a number of tackles in and linking well with some excellent passing moves. Killian and Peter kept the pressure on the opposition all game and Frits made more excellent saves and catches in the second half. Final Score 9-8.
