Our winning streak continues

At the start of the match it looked like it would be a hard fought match. Both sides had plenty of chances and John Lennon-Maher had to pull off several dramatic saves. However, it was Castleknock which went into an early lead when a Demi lobbed a speculative shot over the head of the Ratoath keeper. The keeper managed to scramble back and get a hand to it, but he could not keep it out of the goal.

Shortly afterwards our man-of-the-match David scored another goal to stretch our lead to 2-0. Things were looking good when we were awarded a penalty for hand-ball, but Dylan's powerful shot was narrowly wide. Ratoath managed to get a goal before half-time so that we had a narrow 2-1 lead at the break.

The second half was barely started when Demi had a brilliant run down the wing followed by an excellent shot to give us a comfortable 3-1 lead. Shortly afterwards
Zhudi managed to volley home a cross to stretch our lead to 4-1.

However, Ratoath had no intention of giving up and pulled the score back to 4-2 with a well deserved goal. They continued to put lots of pressure on and Frank, Andy, Cathal and Nado had plenty of work to do keeping them from getting further scores.

Castlkock had other plans however and Demi scored two more excellent goals to leave us with a comfirtable 6-2 margin at the end.
