Millstreet Community School senior soccer team bounced back from a heavy loss in their first group match in Castleisland to beat St. Fanahan’s, in Mitchelstown, 5-4 in the John Murphy Cup. The win means they progress to the knockout stages of the competition and now face another tough away assignment against Schull Community College.
Having taken a two goal lead courtesy of the brace from Lael Tambwe, St. Fanahan’s battled back to take a 4-2 lead. However, with ten minutes to go the Millstreet students began their remarkable fightback. The third goal was scored by captain Colm O’Leary. Then it was the turn of two of the substitutes to play their part. Daniel Dennehy and Mateusz Ozaist both found the net, the last goal coming with virtually the final kick of the game.
It was a really spirited team performance and all the panel should be proud of their efforts.
