U9 Blitz Mungret June 6 2015 Web
On Saturday Morning one of our under 9 squads travelled to Mungret to take on Mungret, Summerville and Regional United in a blitz.

The first game was against Mungret, where Newport won well winning 3-1. A brilliant performance from Adam Power saw him scoring 2 goals with David Whelton adding the other.

The next match against Summerville was disappointing as we went down 4-1 with all four goals against us coming in the second half when we were playing against a very strong wind. Conor Molamphy, who played well in all matches, scored our only goal.

In the last game we lined up against Regional United where we took advantage of the wind to take a 2 goal lead into half time with our star forward Adam Power again getting on the score sheet and Conor Molamphy scoring a great goal direct from a corner kick. The second half against the wind saw us losing 2 early goals but all the lads dug deep to hold on for the draw with great performances from our defenders Evan Moran and Conor O’Brien and also special mention to our keeper James Delahunty who made some great saves to keep us in the match.

This will be our last match of the season and all the lads should be proud of their performance in this blitz and the progress that they have all made this season.
