Iorras seal win in Westport with late dramatic penalty!

Category: UncategorizedThomas @ 2:05 pm

It certainly was the late late show on Saturday evening in the sport park when Iorras secured the 3 points in a very close and entertaining game. Westport (B) led 1-0 at the break following a mix up in the Iorras defence in one of very few attacks by the home team. Iorras spurned the chance of an equaliser from the spot also.
The second half saw Iorras go in search of the elusive equaliser, but found the Westport defence in no mood to concede, indeed they could have extended their lead after hitting the woodwork twice. Last few minutes, the away side threw everything at Westport and eventually after a series of corners from Tom Ivan, he found Brendan Nallen at the far post who drove a bullet header past the Westport keeper.

Point saved, cue the celebration, but Westport poured forward for the winner, and from a Westport free kick on the edge of the box, the wall did its job and suddenly Ryan Ruddy found the ball at his feet and he took off! They finally caught him and upended him in the box. Penalty! Up stepped Nallen to finish coolly and secure the points for Iorras. Final whistle came soon after to leave the score 2-1 to the visitors.

TEAM- Harry Reilly, Brendan Nallan, Micheal Meeaghan, Nathon Reilly: Tom Ivan, Anthony Mills, Padraic Doherty, Tom McAndrew, Gareth O’Malley: Jason O’Donnell. Ryan Ruddy.

CLUB UPDATE

Category: UncategorizedThomas @ 7:42 pm

Iorras took all three points away to Crossmolina in the Premier league on Sunday 9th, Ryan Gaughan with the only goal (0-1).
Kyle O’Reilly was added to the growing injury list (ankle) along with Eamon Carey (ankle) & Keeper, Niall Duffy (wrist). Get well soon to all.

The Erris Under 15’s are finding out the hard way just how difficult life is in the Premier League. They made the long journey to Kiltimagh Knock and spent the first fifteen minutes in their own half. After half an hour they were two nil down and it was shaping up to be a very long evening.

However, the home crowd were stunned into silence when Cillian Reilly scored a goal for the ages. Dara Dixon cut back a cross to the edge of the box, Cillian flicked it up and volleyed it over the keeper. Outstanding.
Connor Barrett forced a great save from the keeper, Daithi Cosgrove had a mazy run that was thwarted on the goal line and there was a bit of a goal mouth scramble near the end.
Other than that it was all Kiltimagh Knock. Fiachna Barrett was magnificent in goal and was presented with the man of the match award. John Ginty and Billy O’Connor displayed great composure at centre back, with plenty of last ditch tackles and goal line clearances.

This was another massive display from Erris. The strength in depth of the K and K squad could be seen with 15 minutes to go when they brought on an Irish international player as a sub.

Erris couldn’t force an equaliser and it finished them 2 us 1. Erris showed great skill and determination to stay in the match right up to the last kick. In fairness, if we had got a point someone would have phoned the Guards. We needed a miracle, and even though we were in the right place for one, it didn’t happen.
Manager Des was delighted with the cohesion showed by Erris and the support they gave to each other.

Great stuff lads.

Iorras U-13s started their 2017 campaign away to Straide & Foxford this evening and were unlucky not to come away with a share of the points. The new look team saw keeper Rhys in brilliant form with numerous saves that kept Iorras in the game to the very end. Captain Eoin along with his defence of Charlie, Martin and Rory battled hard all evening to keep the lively attackers away from our goal. The midfield of Riain, Molly, josh and Oisin were making their presence felt and were able to get forwards Lenny and James in on goal, but the Foxford keeper was equal to anything thrown at him. 2-0 down at half time, manager Lenny unleashed the super subs of Troy, jack, Flynn and Kyle and they injected more energy into the team, eventually seeing josh get a goal back, with 10 mins left. Foxford upped their game, but goal line clearances from Eoin and Kyle, and exceptional goalkeeping from Rhys kept the score line the same. Iorras lost Charlie to a leg injury late on, and he was not happy to be leaving the field for attention. Last few minutes, Iorras piled on the pressure, and some pinpoint corners were brilliantly delivered by Lenny, but alas we could not convert them and Foxford survived a late penalty scare(ref didn’t give it) and held on to win it.
Managers Lenny and Harry were delighted with the teams attitude and performance right to the final whistle and look forward to next weeks clash at home to Castlebar.
Thanks to driver Leo, but apologies to Derek, never saw them sneak the pringles……..
