Senior Soccer Final
BELVEDERE WON 4-3 ON PENALTIES
A cracking match played on the front lawn on a beautiful sunny day.
We sympathise with Captain Jack Reilly (6th Year) and his squad on a very narrow loss. Belvedere has a good side – no doubt – but we just didn’t get the breaks. Belvedere equalised in the 89th minute to take the game to extra time; Sean McCann (5th Year) had put us ahead mid-way through the second half.
Belvedere went ahead in extra-time but a great header by James Kelly (6th Year) at the far post was the equaliser and penalties followed. It was not to be.
It was a great day and I thank the match officials, Belvedere Principal Mr Foley, our own squad and coaches Mr Evan O’Brien and Dylan O’Reilly (Class of 2013), Brian Horgan (2014) and Sean O’Dowd (2015) for making it possible.
This brings to a close a fantastic season.
Well done all!
