The only home game for our Saturday sides was the Under 14 game against Ballyoulster United in Brickfields at the weekend.

Pat's top of their division were looking to stay in front of their main rivals.

In an open game, a resolute “Oulster” said NO, but The Saints said YES.

It was 1-1 as the game entered its final stages. Pats had built a sustained amount of pressure in the closing minutes but it looked like it wasn't going to yield a result.

That is until a quick throw in found Karl Tims, who left his marker for dead, crossed low into the box for Will McMahon to shoot, his first effort was blocked but the rebound was low into the corner.
2-1 to Pats and the winner.

Karl Tims had opened the scoring in the 4th minute with a brilliant skilful run deep into the heart Ballyoluster defence, before the Celbridge club equalized just after the start of the second half.

Pats kept going right to the end to earn the three points and prove where there is a Will, or in the 14s case a Will McMahon, there is a way.

Other results from Saturday saw the 13's continue their impressive form - 3 away wins on the trot - following their 4-1 win away to Ratoath Harps.

Our Sunday sides then continued the winning trend with the 15's winning 4-0 away to Naas in the SFAI Cup and our 16 Major side also won their SFAI Cup match 2-0 away to Malahide.
