Club results from week of 11-15 April   18/04/2018

The U12B girls continued their great run of form with a 2-0 home win over Salthill Devon at Coleman Park. Amelia Grogan and Jessica Shannon scoring the United goals. The U12A girls were also in winning form with a 4-0 away win over Maree/Oranmore. Aided by the breeze, Craughwell enjoyed good spells of possession but found the Oranmore defence difficult to break down. However Abhaigh Molloy did find the target on the stroke of halftime to put United in front. Oranmore began to press for an equaliser after the break, but good performances from keeper Wendy Whiriskey along with defenders Eabha Neary and Chloe Hallinan meant that Oranmore could not break through. The game was finely balanced entering the final quarter with both sides going close. However the turning point came when Sorcha Murphy fired home an unstoppable shot in off the post to make it 2-0 following some good build up play. Well taken late strikes from Tara Morgan and Nicole Clarke put the icing on the cake for the Craughwell girls who take on Kinvara in their next game.

The junior men’s side went down 4-2 away to promotion rivals Renmore B with that result leaving United out of the automatic promotion picture. Renmore scored twice before Craughwell rallied well with a Jonathan Leech free kick and a Gavin O Toole goal to level the game at 2-2. However the home side scored two more goals late on to take the three points.

The U15 boys were defeated 2-0 away to Tuam Celtic; the U12B boys went down 4-0 at home to Salthill Devon C while the U12C boys lost narrowly 2-1 at home to Salthill Devon D.

Elsewhere, the U12A boys had a fine 2-0 win away to a well organised Cregmore/Claregalway FC team. Two goals by Alan Zimmerer proved the difference between the sides; the first a fortuitous long range effort to break the deadlock, and then an excellent back post header from a corner. The Craughwell defence was solid again with another clean sheet featuring standout performances from Lucas Keane, Adam Jordan and Cormac Regan. The second half saw United put string of chances together with both Conor Gilligan and Shane Murray providing a constant thorn in the Cregmore defence. The result leaves Craughwell top of the Premier League with huge challenges ahead in the coming weeks, starting with a home tie against nearest rivals Mervue United at 6.45pm  this Thursday 19 April. All support at Coleman Park welcome.
