Youths Kick-Off Season
On Saturday last August 23rd Cahir Park Youths got the new 2014-15 season underway away to Cashel Town.
On a pitch that was in very poor condition both teams struggled to adjust. Eventually Cahir Park enjoyed the better of the exchanges and dominated possession but with few goal chances to show for it.
In the latter part of the half chances did start to come but there was a distinct lack of composure in front of goal. On 31 minutes Cahir Park struck what proved to be the only goal of the game. From a succession of Cahir Park corners, Dean O?Brien, once again, swung in a perfect centre with Centre Half Shane Power on hand to stab the ball goal wards past the despairing Cashel Town goalkeeper. Cahir pressed forward creating some great chances which they failed to take.
The second half was an entirely different affair. Cashel Town made a number of player and positional changes which The Park failed to get to grips with. The home team started to press home its? midfield advantage and only some last ditch tackles form Bernard McHugh and three ?one on one? saves from the man of the match, keeper Callum Fanning keeping Cashel at bay. Cahir were restricted to breaks and both Brian White and Johnny Coveney were very unluckly with their efforts narrowly wide of the target.
The final Cahir Park effort saw a very quick thinking Stephen O?Dwyer, excellent in midfield all afternoon, find the net from a free kick only for the referee to rule it out and force him to retake the effort. Cashel pressed on but the clock finally ran out for them with the final whistle sounding. Cashel will count themselves unlucky not to take anything from the game and Cahir Park mindful that performances will need to improve with much stiffer tests ahead particularly with the highly fancied Clonmel Town next up on Saturday next.
