MATCH REPORTS 2020/21
Corofin 0 - 7 Athenry FC U13C
3rd Oct 2020
On the beautiful morning Athenry FC were out of the traps right from the whistle
and had the opposition under large periods of sustained pressure, allowing Danny Pertus to pop up from midfield to open the scoring. This was followed by 2 quick goals from Ben Gacquin, and a thunderbolt from Richard Humphreys. Darragh Lally completed the scoring in the first half from the penalty spot. A series of half time changes did nothing to disrupt the Athenry flow and great wing play from Luke Geary and Liam Murphy allowed Fionn Branaghan to add 2 quick goals to the score line before the ever industrious Jeff Ogunbayo played in Fionn to complete the scoring and a well deserved Hat-Trick. Superb displays all round and a very well deserved victory.

IMPERIOUS NOONE TOO MUCH FOR COLGA
U15 GFA Division 1 Girls Athenry 3-1 Colga (13/09/20)
The first time the club has had a second team in league at U15 girls. It resulted in a win against a very strong Colga team played in a competitive but fair nature. The first goal came from very good footwork from Molly Noone that resulted in a penalty she converted to the roof of the net. The second goal came from a super first time volley from Isabella Lyons to the roof of the net, her first goal for the club. The third goal again from nifty footwork by Molly Noone to cross the ball across the goal line for the captain Sinead O'Mahony to tap in.
The defense of Rhiannon, Lauren, Ellen and Sarah were rock solid and had to be to keep out late pressure. Cara and Sophie were unlucky not to get goals but worked very hard for the team. Amber made a super save to keep the game at 3-1 whilst her sisters Marissa and Aisling worked tirelessly. Tegan came on and was a handful against tiring legs. Well done girls.
