U14S PREMIERE Navan Town 1 – Johnstown 5
Johnstown travelled the short distance to Navan Towns new ground determined to keep up their good run of results in the premiere league.
The hosts started well in some neat passing but as soon as the Johnstown lads got a grip on the game there was no way back.
Herdy started the goal rout with his energetic self down the left 1-0. Next up Walshie sent a low driven ball from outside the box and gave the goalkeeper no chance 2-0. Then the third just before half time came from Clarkie on the right with a sublime shot from 30 yards our contender for goal of the season.
3-0 at half-time the coaching staff reminded the lads to keep the tempo up and focus on the job in hand.
An indirect free kick in the Johnstown box led to Navan Town getting a good goal high in the top corner 3-1. Johnstown controlled the midfield well with captain Riley and Nathan Carton ever so strong in everything they did.
Walshie stepped up to get his second goal with a crisp shot tucked into the corner from a back heel from Mikey Leddy 4-1. The last goal came via a penalty in which was neatly dispatched by Ben a nice gift to get on his birthday 5-1.
A good day at the office for the candy stripes was followed by a double birthday celebration for Craig and Ben at the final whistle. big thanks to Sharon for organising this, our very own social events planner!
