U13 ETP start Inter League with win away to Clare
Michael Ryan & David Moloney on Target as U13 ETP's record opening win away to Clare

Our u13 E.T.P. squad travelled to Tulla Co.Clare today for the first round of the subway

championship.

In what was a horrible day for football on grass surface both LCDUL EPT and Clare etp can be proud

of the football games they put on for a large watching crowd.

The inter-league game finished on a score line of CLARE 1 LCDUL 2, what a excellent game of football

was seen, LCDL started the stronger and was controlling game with some nice play between the back

and midfield for the first ten mins, but credit to CLARE they found a way to get in to game and after

a some pressure they took the lead. the response from the lads was quick and after seeing an effort

cleared of the line Michael Ryan had another effort from 25 yards which the goalkeeper could only

parry and David Moloney was on hand to make it one all. THE second half was more like the first

with our boys on top of game with Shane Ryan pulling the strings. The second goal came after some

strong pressing by the team saw Sean Carroll split the CLARE back four with a great ball for Michael

Ryan to finish nicely into the far bottom corner. Again CLARE came back at us but some strong

defending and some top goalkeeping by Kevin Stanley, saw us come out on top.

The other game of the day saw our development team play our host. With some new boys playing

for the first time in a set up like this. we started well and were enjoying some nice play ,until we got

hit with a sucker punch off a goal after 12 mins. After that strike CLARE grew into game and some

nice play saw them take a deserve 3 nil in at half time. Credit to our boys they stuck to the way we

want them to play football and tried to get back into the game but as we pushed forward CLARE

caught us on the break and made it a score line of CLARE 5 LCDUL 0. The Score line might look one

sided but it was far from it.
