Mooney's View: CCS v Deele College

Match report by Carndonagh Community school's no. 1 sports correspondant, Liam Mooney (5C)

The game started poorly and that was matched by the lines on the pitch that were done the previous day by Kieran Farren and Jake Harkin. In the opening exchanges Carn made several dodgy passes, especially from Nathan Logue who seemed to forget who he played for. Deele made a couple of contentious tackles but Rudden managed to match this with a pretty tasty tackle himself. Controversy struck midway through the half when linesman Darragh O’Connor failed to raise his flag for a CCS throw in (it’s unlikely he will ever get that job again).

U15 Girls Soccer - Five-Star Performance in Season Opener

U15 Girls Soccer 2018

Carndonagh CS 5-0 St Columba’s Photo Album

Carndonagh CS U15 girls got their season off to a great start with a 5-0 win over St. Columba’s Stranorlar (8th October 2018). The first goal wasn’t long coming as Emma Devlin, with a great through ball, found 1st year Ellie Long, who calmly slotted it past the keeper for what we hope is her first of many Carndonagh CS goals. The next goal came from Sophie Murphy, who got the ball at the halfway line and drove straight to goal to make it 2-0. Captain Chaylee Greene secured another for CCS when she got on the end of a loose ball in the box. St. Columba’s battled hard but couldn’t stop the Carndonagh side who moved the ball well to find Emma Devlin who was composed in front of goal to get her name on the scoresheet. Centre backs Kate McCallion and Roseanna McConnalogue held it tight to ensure a clean sheet for Carndonagh. Katherine Doherty also got a goal for her side after a great game on the right wing. The game was well secured when Alaina Keogh scored the final goal for the winning side. She received the ball in the box and buried it to leave the final score 5-0.

Goalscorers: Ellie Long, Sophie Murphy, Emma Devlin, Chaylee Greene, Alaina Keogh
