Thursday, 5th November - The U15s had a hard-fought yet comfortable win in the end against Scoil Mhuire, Buncrana. The Buncrana side took the lead after 30 minutes when C.C.S, who were dominant throughout, lost concentration when defending a corner kick and conceded a soft goal. The home team went in 1-0 up at the break. A slight change of formation and the introduction of Nathan McKinney made a real difference in the middle of the field. Luke Rudden linked up well with Corey McBride on the right hand side and the continuous pressure resulted in a corner kick early in the second half. Mickey Friel landed a captain's contribution, drawing the teams level by pouncing on some unconvincing defending. Carndonagh dominated proceeding from then onwards and took the lead through an amazing effort for McBride. His 30-yard free kick swirled through the air at high speed and smacked off the crossbar at the top right hand corner before crossing the line. Exceptional! Speaking of exceptional, Luke Rudden's second half performance was just that! His second goal was the cream of the crop as he flicked the ball up to himself before hitting a looping volley from 25 yards out, leaving the goalkeeper with nothing to do but watch it sail over his head and into the net. Solid performances from the back five and the midfield made this result possible. Hard work on the right wing and his free kick tekkers earned Corey McBride the MOTM award.
