Texas Cup

The Texas cup final score

Celtic FCA 1 Austin 0


The bhoys finished of what was a remarkable up and down season to win the Texas Cup 1-0 over our old enemy Austin FC.


The bhoys started the game off very well dominating possession and creating the better chances. Austin defended very well but offered little going forward in first half. The Celts scored a goal in the 37th minute when Carlos Rabago setup Sammy Ekpenyong to strike a low shot from 12 yards out to bottom left corner giving the bhoys the lead. They would take that till Halftime  1-0


2nd half the celts came out like the first and should have added to score but for some great saves from Austin keeper. As the game moved on Austin had to attack and did so with wave after wave. They start to dominate possession creating some half chances. The Celts hitting on the counter. With 15 minutes to go Coach keyes decided to help out his defense and made the change taking off a forward and putting on a a second holding midfielder. It worked but still didn't stop Austin coming. They threw everything at us and in the end i was happy to hear the final whistle. The bhoys deserved it over the 90 minutes.  To win it again was special said Keyes, these bhoys worked so hard for this win.
