Back on Track with Captain Jack in victory over Carrigallen

St.Joseph’s Com.Col…………………6 Carrigallen……………………….0

St.Joseph’s got back on track after their defeat to Glenamaddy last week with a convincing win over Carrigallen in u.15 soccer in Castlebar on Thursday last. The Charlestown boys were itching to get back on the field after their previous lacklustre performance against Glenamaddy and it was a case of whomever the opposition was to be they would be in for a torrid time and so it was.

This game was controlled from the start by Jack Mahon, who was like a man possessed; he popped up everywhere and encouraged his team mates throughout. The first goal came in the fourth minute, a nice angled finish from the Captain. The second goal followed soon after when a delightful nutmeg from Darragh Casey set Mahon up for his second. Ruairí Cullen made it 3-0 on twenty minutes with a deflected goal.

The Carrigallen goalkeeper was superb and kept his team in the game throughout this early onslaught with some breath taking saves. Another one just before half time was defiantly pushed onto the crossbar only for Mahon to bury the rebound and achieve his hat-trick. The half time score of 4-0 could have been more as Marty McCormack saw an effort come back off the post with the first half ending.

The second half started in a similar way to the first and McCormack ran through and finished well, before that man again, Mahon put the icing on the cake with his fourth. Fair play to Carrigallen they played to the end and will have better days, they were just unlucky to face a wounded animal in Charlestown.

Good performances all around but especially from Mahon, McCormack, and Honeyman made this a good day for the East Mayo boys.
