We got back to winning ways last night with a hard fought 2-1 win over Rathcoole in Cooney Park. Rathcoole got off to a much better start and controlled the first 10 mins before taking the lead on 15 mins. This seemed to kick start us and we started to create chances for Tadhg Collins and Barry Lawlor. We were level after 25 mins when a clever through ball from Chris Cleary found Lawlor in space and he slotted it past the advancing keeper for 1-1. Just 10 mins later we were 2-1 ahead and it was the same combo again. This time Cleary got in down the right and pulled it back for Lawlor to lash home a volley and give us the lead. We almost went 3-1 up in the 60th min when Collins was through on keeper but shot just wide. In the 80th min Rathcoole were awarded a penalty but our keeper Piotr Oziast pulled off a superb save to keep our lead intact. This was the last meaningful action of the game and we held out for the 3 points. Best for us on the day were Barry Lawlor, Chris Cleary and Piotr Oziast.
