This was Paddy Cook’s brilliant strike in the 20th minute which flew into the top corner of the net for VEC 2nds second goal against Frank Celtic, as we recorded a comprehensive 5-0 win in this Division 2A match Terenure on Saturday.
Colm McSharry had opened the scoring 10 minutes earlier and added another later on, while VEC’s other goalscorers were Ronan Corbett and Conor O’Neill.
In the earlier Premier Division fixture, Seamus Staunton had his 34th minute penalty saved before scoring two goals in the 54th and 55th minutes to secure VEC’s 2-1 win over Arthur Griffith Park FC, after the visitors had taken an unexpected 2nd minute lead.
After a good start to the season, VEC 2nds failed to take their chances in this Division 2A clash in Terenure and eventually succumbed to a 3-0 loss to Stedfast Utd. on Tuesday.
Trailing 2-0 at the break, VEC had a number of chances in the third quarter to get back on terms, but couldn’t find the back of the net and once Stedfast got the third goal mid-way through the half, unfortunately there was no coming back for the home team.
Oisin Kinsella about to score VEC’s first goal of the season in the 7th minute in our Premier Division match against Beech Park FC in Terenure on Saturday. 6 minutes later, Pat Meghen added a second and that completed the scoring as VEC failed to hit the net again despite numerous chances, particularly in the final 15 minutes.
So the new season begins with a 2-0 win and 3 points in the bag and hopefully many more to come in the weeks and months ahead!
VEC’s understrength squad were unable to prevent the opposition clawing their way back into this crazy game which finished 5-5. Seamus Staunton scored two of VEC’s goals, Joey Byrne and Jordan Howard got one each and an o.g. In the ensuing penalty shoot-out, VEC scored 4 to St. Marys Boys 5.
Joey Byrne opened the scoring for the home team with a delightful header from a perfect Jordan Howard cross in the 14th minute (pic.) while Seamus Staunton restored VEC’s lead 3 minutes into the second half and Pat Meghen scored the final goal as VEC advanced to meet St. Mary’s Boys in this Pre-season Tournament Final on 7th August.
Meanwhile VEC 2nds upward spiral continued with a comprehensive 5-3 win over Stedfast Utd. on the same day. VEC’s goals came from Ryan Brady (2), Eoin Sweeney, Colm McSharry and Manny Mansuk.
Although the visitors pulled one back in the 55th minute, it wasn’t enough as there were no further scores despite a few good chances that we had to wrap it up … meaning that we spent the final 10 minutes defending our lead. In the end … 3 points! Click on image to enlarge. Click here for more.
