St.Brendans were in control for most of the game, despite Charleville’s best efforts. Michael Lenihan opened the scoring with a great assist from Dylan Murphy.

The score at remained 1-0 until after the break when Christian Marchetti stuck a powerful shot into the back of the Charleville net. Shortly afterwards he scored the goal of the game, running through the Charlevilledefence with ease after a great pass by Caolan Ryan and knocking it past the goalkeeper to make it 3-0. Substitutions were then made and Adam Kissane’s corner found Eanna Coleman who laid it off for Mark Cooper who beat the keeper with his weaker foot to further extend St. Brendan’s lead. The game ended 4-0 with every panel member getting some game time.
