Brideview pushing hard for the win that would give them the necessary points needed to stay top of the table had some lovely play through Ben Sheehan in midfield and were twarted by Valley goalkeeper Dan Turley on a number of occasions. Charlie Leahy, Brian O'Sullivan and Sam Ahern were excellent for Valley in defence. Valley had a chance to win it in the last few minutes of the game when a lovely ball behind the Brideview defence was met on the volley by Tristan Clancy only to produce a class save by Brideview keeper Alex Good.

Valley Rangers 1 - 0 Mogeely F.C.

It was a nice warm but breezy afternoon in conna for this U12 premier league encounter. As we entered this match, Valley and Mogeely sit side by side mid table so it was always going to be a close one.

Mogeely started the brighter and had plenty of the possession in the first half. They had a number of half chances but had one good chance just before half time when the Mogeely centre forward was put through and had just the keeper to beat but Dan Turley in goals for Valley made a wonderful save to his right hand side to deny Mogeely. Valley had one good chance in the first half but Tymek pulled the ball wide from the right hand side.

Valley started the second half a bit brighter and were counter attacking well. This paid off when Tristan Clancy put a lovely ball through to Cillian Hickey who beat one player and finished well to put Valley ahead. Mogeely piled on the pressure and laid siege to the Valley goal for the last 15 minutes of the game but Valley were dogged in defence with Charlie Leahy, Brian O'Sullivan and Mark Kearney playing well. Mogeely had more of the possession right throughout the game and played some lovely football with Alex McSweeney showing brightly in midfield and deserved something from the game. Final score: Valley 1-0 Mogeely.
