U-12: Congratulations to Paddy, Jim and the U12s squad who retained the Sligo Leitrim cup after a dramatic penalty shoot out win on Tuesday in Strandhill verses Real Tubber. Fiachra Henry and Donal Casey got the goals in regular time after the Carrick lads twice came from behind to leave the score at 2-2 after 60 mins. Extra time could not separate the teams so it went into a penalty shoot out. Keeper Killian Gaffey saved the first Tubber penalty and all five Carrick lads scored from the spot to win the tie. (see match report).
U-13: Mark Diffley, Niall Morohan and Jack Mathews represented Sligo Leitrim in their quarter final match v the Galway League but unfortunately were defeated 2-1. On Tues next we are at home to Real Tubber in a must win game, kick-off 7pm.
U-15: Training continues on Thursdays for anyone who is interested. Strand Celtic beat Ballisodare 1-0 in the other Division 1 Final.
Seniors: Carrick Town Senior team played at home v Cliffoney Celtic in their third last league game on Sunday last. Carrick started well playing some good football and the pressure finally told after 20 minutes when they took the lead. Carrick added a second just before the break and a third within a minute of the restart. Cliffoney pulled one back but Carrick added two more to leave the final score 5-1. This leaves Carrick in second in league on 43 points from 20 games and with two games left automatic promotion is still possible if both games can be won and other results go our way. Scorers were Steven Sirle (2), Ray Mulvey, Brian O’Donnell and Niall Comerton.
