Over 35’s Floodlit League Result: Cobh Wanderers 1-1 Crofton Celtic

Filed under: Local Soccer |

This result owed almost everything to the brilliance of Jason Greene in the Wanderers goal as he pulled off a string of world class saves to deny Crofton what could have been a comfortable win. Wanderers took the lead mid-way through the first half when one of the many outstanding corners on the night from Paul Geasley was headed into his own net by the Crofton player, under pressure from Jonathan O’ Mahony who forced the error. Tommy Cronin was Wanderers most creative player on the night and did some great work down the right side. Trevor Rowe ran tirelessly up front and held the ball up very well all night. Crofton looked the more dangerous team from set pieces though and eventually in the second half they managed to convert one of their many chances from a corner on the left which was headed back across goal and touched over the line for a deserved equaliser.

Team: Jason Greene, Sean Geasley, Jonathan O’ Mahony, Rob O’ Keeffe, Dave Kinsella, Jimmy Quinlan, Tommy Cronin, Anthony Mahoney, Dwayne Breen (Damien Rowe), Trevor Rowe, Paul Geasley.
