Soccer: Castle Celtic started their league campaign off today winning 5 - 1 in emphatic style.

Castle hosted Killarney Athletic B today in magnificent conditions for a game.

Killarney imposed themselves imminently on the game moving the ball through the lines quickly. With one long range effort coming close to opening the score line... Castle slowly started to come into the game with tremendous work from the two centre midfielders of Maurice Slattery and Conor Shannon breaking up the play and moving the ball through the channels. Steve Speirs and Michael Scanlon giving their markers a horrid time pressing high and launching attacks. The breakthrough came in the first half when a ball in from the left wing saw Michael Scanlon throw a boot at it and rocketted it in off the bar.

With Killarney pressing for an equaliser Castles defence stood firm with Alan McNamara marshalling the back line. Dylan Hoare saw most of the action of the first half down his wing, but he was well able for the challenge not letting anything get by him.

Castles second goal came from the boot of Brandon Hoare. After breaking down a Killarney Attack. The ball broke out the wing to Steve Speirs where he played it into the feet of Brandon, who turned and ran at the defence after beating 4 defenders finding himself in the box on the opposite side he retrieved the ball he let a powerful shot into the keepers far bottom corner. The momentum swinging in Castles favour at the right time in the game. With a few minutes left until the second half.

Within 30seconds of the restart Castle had the ball in the back of the net again. A long ball out of defence saw Kevin Power get behind killarneys defence on the right wing, as he crossed Brandon had made a massive run to the front post where he appeared to miss hit it but it still ended up in the net.

Castle were in control of the game at this stage. Working hard all over the park. A Killarney free kick inside there own half was launched forward which saw a glancing header into the empty net as Castles keeper was caught in no mans land. 3 - 1 game on.....

But again within minutes of Killarney getting 1 back, Castle got a free kick on the left wing which was floated into the box where Michael Scanlon found himself jumping alone, was able to steer the ball over the keeper into the net.

Castle began to empty the bench but Michael Scanlon had one more piece of magic to deliver as he found himself in a green arce after a defence splitting pass from Maurice Slattery. Michael coolly slotted the ball passed the keeper. Leaving the scoreline 5 - 1

We would like to Thank Killarney Athletic B for the game and Eddie O'Mahony for being in charge.
