U19 Match Report – Kerry 0 Cabinteely FC 0
Cabo drew for the first time in the U19 EA Sports National Underage League Group A this season on Sunday afternoon.
After a long trip to Mounthawk Park, the White and Green played out a stalemate against Kerry on the way to their first shut-out on the road in 2021.
Against a defensive opposition who put players behind the ball throughout, the visitors failed to make the most of the chances that came their way.
In the first 45 minutes, Cillian Melwani, Oran Molony, and Lee McEvoy could not take advantage of opportunities that cane their way.
Dominating possession in the second period, McEvoy, Sean O’Connor, and Evan Laughlin all went close to scoring.
On the back of three successive victories over Bray Wanderers, Treaty United, and Wexford FC before this weekend, the team is now joint-fourth in the table – six points off leaders Cobh, but with a game in hand.
The focus now turns to Wednesday’s (August 11) Enda McGuill Cup first-round tie away to St. Patricks Athletic at Kilbarrack United’s Greendale Road venue with a 8.00 pm kick-off.
The team will then return to Ballycorus next Sunday to face Shelbourne at 2.30 pm in the EA Sports National Underage League Group A.
