Under 9 League

St Josephs under 9s played a great game and came away with a fine win on Saturday in Meadowlands. Joeys took the lead when Ciaran Townsend was in the right spot to send a fine header to the home net. Christopher Gaule who is having a great scoring season then scored to give Joeys a 2-0 lead at half time. With everybody playing well it was not long before Christopher Gaule got his second of the game with a fine individual effort. Shortly after Barry Power showed his skills with another fine goal. Fiach Byrne, and Cathal Whelan were in excellent form and Shane Webb had a great game in goal. Michael Calvey making his comeback after injury was a revelation.
Under 9 League
St Pats 4-2 St Josephs
Joeys under 9s put up a great show in this fine game in very blustery conditions. Trailing 2-0 at half time Joeys worked hard in the second half and were unlucky not to get more out of the game. Best for Joeys were Brian Hosey, Sean Kirwan and Art O Dea. Michael Mullins got both goals to continue his great run.
Under 11 League
Parkville Utd 3-1 St Josephs 1
St Josephs attacked all game but could only get one goal for all their effort. Best for Joeys in a very close game were Alison Mahon, Michael Lawlor and Seamus Hurley. David Townsend got the only goal.
Under 13 League
St Pats Boys 2-2 St. Joseph’s
St Josephs dominated the play in the first half and played some good football down the left side through Brian Shiels and Pauric Whelan. Despite this they were fortunate to go ahead after a mix up in the Pats area Matthew O Toole was left to stroke the ball into the empty net. Shortly after Joeys went 2 up again after a very similar situation Jeff Sutton put the ball in the net. HT 0-2 The first 5 minutes of the second half saw Joeys lose their composure and after a goalkeeping error the Pats forward had a tap into the empty Joeys net. This rattled Joeys and the second goal came after the Joeys defenders failed to clear. After this joeys got going again but only created one good chance but the home keeper made an excellent save. Best for Joeys were Brian Farrell, Brian Shiels and Pauric Whelan.
