GLENS TOO HOT FOR ROUNDWOOD

GLENCORMAC UNITED 7 ROUNDWOOD AFC 0

Glencormac claimed their first WDSL U15 K&K Windows Premier League home win of the season by as they powered past a brave Roundwood.

Three first half goals at Ryder’s Field in Kilmac paved the way for United’s second victory in five games on Thursday evening.

Elsewhere, Coolboy Rangers defeated Arklow Town 4-2 at Bridgewater Centre Park.

With joint leaders (unbeaten) leaders Rathnew AFC and Ashford Rovers not playing, Coolboy are now in third – a point behind the top two – while the Glens are a further point adrift in fourth.

After defeating Carnew AFC 2-0 at the Back Alley last February, United had drawn 2-2 at home with Rathnew back in March, as well as playing a score-less draw with Ashford at the same venue in April

But lost 2-1 away to Avonmore FC at Tullylusk in Rathdrum earlier this month.

Roundwood had lost 4-2 at home to Ashford at the Vartry Grounds and 5-0 to Avonmore at Tullylusk before edging out Wicklow Rovers B 4-3 a fortnight ago at home.

However, they were severely under-strength and missing several key players.

Yet, despite that, they nearly went ahead after ten minutes when Sean McHugh’s bullet header flew just wide off Jack Wolohan’s free-kick.

Just three minutes later, the hosts took the lead. Aaron Killick curled in a corner from the left right-footed with Dean Bradshaw breaking free to steer in a fantastic header.

Two late goals on the stroke of half time gave Glencormac the edge.

They doubled their tally in the 33rd minute. Lee Ireland brilliantly parried Oisín Kelly’s drive from outside the box. The keeper then blocked a follow up. But the ball fell to winger Bobby Dowling who angled in a low left-footed finish to the bottom corner of the net.

With virtually the last touch of the first period it became 3-0.

Jack Wolohan’s free was gathered by Charlie Frawley. The custodian’s long punt saw Ireland challenged by three opponents in his box for the bouncing ball. Aaron Killick got there and slotted into an unguarded goal,

The second half was a much more even affair until the 55th minute. Charlie McCabe’s effort was parried clear by Ireland. The ball was recycled by the home team. McCabe fed Killick who smashed to the net from 22-yards.

Just after the hour mark, Killick and Bradley Cullen linked to fed Kelly, He span off his marker inside the penalty area to convert from 15-yards.

Just 90 seconds later, Killick showed great close control to bamboozle three Roundwood players. That created space for the midfielder to fire in a stunning 25-yard drive to complete his treble in style.

Right on the final whistle, sub Kieran Griffiths swept play wide right to Cullen, He side-stepped a tackle before curling from 16-yards
