A real mixed bag this past weekend for local community based soccer club Maree/Oranmore fc kindly sponsored by the Galway Clinic.
On Saturday last the u13 Premier boys had a fine 5-2 home win against Galway Hibernians to put them at the summit of the table with 4 games played with the goals arriving from Sean Stapleton, David Mc Loughlin, Daniel Gilbert and a brace from Darragh Mill.
No such luck for the u13 championship or Div 1 sides who went down to Craughwell Utd and Mervue respectively in League fare.
The u18 Premier boys had to work very hard last Sunday to see out a dogged Tuam Celtic side 5-3 in Oranmore in the League to make it three wins from three at the top of the table, among the goalscorers were Eoin Lyons and Ciaran Black in a close encounter.
The day before a Gavin Smyth penalty just before half time to equalise with Mervue away in the FAI U17 Cup, however three late goals saw our opponents advance in Fahys Field.
The u15 boys played well against a strong Knocknacarra fc side in the sfai u15 cup but a late late visitors goal just minutes from time saw them exit the competition with Cathal Glynn in particular excelling at the back for Maree/Oranmore fc.
The girls sides on Sunday last had a little bad luck in close encounters, the u19 girls were defeated 4-2 in the Cup away to Mervue with Tara Brogan and Rhian Heary scoring.
The u12s lost out on a similar 4-2 scoreline at home to Kilshanvey Utd with Katie Quirke and Katie Costello netting.
The u15s were pipped 2-1 by Kiltullagh with Ailbhe Burke scoring.
