The U12s were unable to repeat their Tuesday night 4-2 victory over St Itas on Sunday with the home side holding on for a 1-1 draw in sunny Portrane.
It looked like the young Hoops would be taking all three points when Leo Maher ⚽ fired home superbly after a great team move with some great play from Jack and Taylor in midfield. However St Itas hit back a few minutes later thanks to their lively number 14 who caused the United defence some problems early on.
The second half saw Baldoyle up the pressure on St Itas but despite coming close on a number of occasions they could not take all three points. A point may be very important come the end of the season and the Baldoyle boys will be determined to come back strong against Corduff this Wednesday evening in Blanchardstown. ... See MoreSee Less

Another great report from Baldoyle player Eoin Leeson:
Baldoyle u18s Premier maintained their perfect start to the league campaign on Sunday as they produced a dominant display to see off Duleek away from home.
Despite a number of well crafted chances and efforts on goal, Baldoyle couldn't find a breakthrough goal in the first half. Fintan Caulfield proved he is in fact human after his tame penalty was saved by the Duleek goalkeeper.
The second half continued in much the same fashion as Baldoyle defended in an exemplary manner, pressed Duleek into errors and knocked the ball about in a way that the home side couldn't handle. As the game wore on, it looked like it would end up being a frustrating day in front of goal for Baldoyle but thankfully the deadlock was broken when Sean Collins picked up possession and slipped a delightful pass into Fintan Caulfield who did the rest, dispatching the ball into the net and giving Baldoyle a crucial lead.
The strike proved to be the difference in the end as Baldoyle held on for an 11th win in a row.
Man of the Match: Chris Dunne - A tidy performance from the captain whose defensive and offensive work rate built the foundations of Baldoyle's win.
Mayfest 2017 was another huge success. The sun came out (with the odd shower). The crowds turned up in their thousands. Boys, girls and adults had great fun.
At the Baldoyle United stand we had the very popular Continental Tyres football speed test, shoot through the tyres and reaction board. We also had visits from the FAI League and Cup winning Shelbourne ladies team and current Shels & Ireland star Kate Mooney who came through Baldoyle Utd junior teams.
We were delighted to meet some new friends and some old ones. Senator Aodhan O'Riordain, Cllr Brian McDonagh and Fingal Mayor Cllr Darragh Butler also dropped by and were very complementary about the work the club does in providing football to so many people in and around Baldoyle. A super day and thanks to all the organisers and Fingal County Council for its support.
Mayfest 2017. Wear your colours and you could WIN a Nike Football ! To enter, simply wear your Baldoyle Utd top and visit our tent at the Mayfest between 1pm-6pm. All players who are wearing club gear will be entered in the draw. ... See MoreSee Less

BALDOYLE U18 PREMIER CONTINUE FINE START WITH DUNBOYNE WIN
Baldoyle u18s Premier maintained their 100% record in the league as they beat Dunboyne 7-1 on Sunday.
A solid first half display from Baldoyle saw them take a 2-0 lead into the interval. Armin Gecso opened the scoring before Jaimie Darby rifled home a deflected free kick.
Baldoyle were even more impressive in the second half. They brought an added level of quality and intensity to the game and despite conceding to a soft penalty, they added five more goals to seal the comprehensive victory. Fintan Caulfield grabbed a hat-trick to continue his impressive goal scoring run while a majestic effort from Gary McDonnell and a tidy finish from Zac Osbourne saw them get in on the goalscoring act.
The win makes it 10 in a row for Baldoyle whose charge for league and cup titles gathers pace with every passing match.
Man of the Match: Eoin Berry - The second half substitute was the physical manifestation of everything Baldoyle were about in the game and his energy, desire and smart decisions saw him contribute heavily to Baldoyle's goals in the second period.

Baldoyle u18s Premier advanced to the next round of the cup with a comfortable 5-1 win over Malahide United at Brookstone Road on Sunday.
The visitors took a shock lead early on with a freak goal but Baldoyle didn't let that affect them and despite losing Eoin Leeson to injury they rallied to go in leading 2-1 at the break. The goals came from substitute David Lally, whose attempted cross flew spectacularly into the corner, and Jaimie Darby, who danced into the box before finishing calmly to put Baldoyle in front.
Baldoyle continued to show their superiority in the second period. The performance wasn't perfect throughout but they were able to add another three goals as Lally drove home a powerful effort to notch his brace and Fintan Caulfield made it 16 goals in 8 games as he tapped home a rebound and converted a late penalty.
The win sees Baldoyle into the last 8 of the cup ahead of a return to league action next weekend and also makes it 9 victories in a row for the Hoops.
Man of the Match: David Lally - An impressive performance from the debutante who ran the game from midfield after coming on as a first half substitute and also managed to grab two goals in the process.
