Club results from weekend of 7-8 April   10/04/2018

The U12A boys maintained their push for Premier League honours with a 3-1 home win over Tuam Celtic last Sunday. The goals came from Conor Gilligan (2 goals, pictured) and Roan Budge while other notable performers on the day were Lucas Keane and Shane Murray.

The U12C boys had an excellent performance against runaway league leaders Athenry and pushed them very close until two late goals gave the away side the points. Stand out players were keeper Dylan Moran while Cormac Touhy and Eamon Corbin marshalled the defence very well.
Also at Coleman Park, the U18 boys drew 3-3 with Athenry B in their final league fixture this season. Vincent Boyle scored twice including a late penalty to snatch the equaliser while Joe Jackson was also on the scoresheet.

The U14B boys were 3-2 winners at home to Loughrea Rams. Two goals from Daire Crowe and one from Shane Tuohy sealed the win.

The U13A boys lost 3-2 at home to Kinvara United with Daire Crowe scoring both Craughwell goals.

The U12B girls maintained their unbeaten league run with a 4-1 away win over Oughterard B. Molly Gilligan opened the scoring but a quickfire Jessica Shannon hat trick turned the game in Craughwell’s favour . Also starring for United were Ella Farrelly and Aoife O'Meara. 

The U12A Girls came up second best to a well drilled Bearna NaForbacha team at Coleman Park on Sunday. Bearna started the game brightly, scoring twice inside the first ten minutes. Craughwell had a couple of chances through Ashling Whyte and Grace Keaveney, but the Bearna defence proved difficult to break down. Two further goals before the interval left United a mountain to climb.To their credit Craughwell chased the game hard during the second half and got a consolation goal through Abhaigh Molloy, but in the end Bearna ran out deserved 5-1 winners.  The U14 girls were defeated 5-0 away to league leaders Colga.

The U18 girls put up a great performance against recent Irish Cup winners Cregmore/Claregalway FC in their League Cup semi-final at Coleman Park last Thursday. The away side built up a 3-0 lead by the break before prolific striker Ailvhe Martyn pulled a goal back for Craughwell. Cregmore scored again but when Leah Crotty was taken down in the box, Aoife Raftery put away the spot kick to reduce the arrears once more. Cregmore scored to seal the win, but the Craughwell girls can be greatly encouraged by their recent good form.
