Oldcastle A 1-4 Johnstown.
This was a top of the table clash and Johnstown took control of this game from the start pressing forward and pinning Oldcastle in their own half. Johnstown then went 1-0 up with a well taken goal by Cian Swaine. The second goal was scored by the most unlikely source when Johnstowns goalkeeper Eoin Mcallister took a kick out and went in over the Oldcastles goalkeepers head despite getting a strong hand on it. Two more goals followed, one was a very well struck shot by Clayton O’Sullivan and the other a brilliant header by Jess Justa. That left Johnstown 4-0 up at half time.
As much as Oldcastle piled on the pressure in the second half to reduce the score line, the Johnstown team kept them at bay. Johnstown could’ve increased there lead only to see shots by mark Rafferty and Clayton hit the crossbar and post. Oldcastle did pull one back late in the game which is a reward for all the pressure they put Johnstown under in the second half.
This was a fantastic squad performance by all the Johnstown players at the weekend, Well done all
