Match Report

By Ronnie McDowell

This was a very hard fought match against a very young, but good garvey side. Thier first touch passing was the difference between us and them.
The match started well with both sides having chances but it was Garvey who put the ball in the net with some bad man marking from easts point of view. After the goal east tried to get into the game with Alan Russell making some good runs up the pitch only to lose it at the last hurdle before making that crucial pass, something that i think will come with more experience. It was from one of these runs that Alan darted down the left side, cut into the middle and let off an excellent shot to bring us level. 1-1 and all was looking better but then Garvey started to turn it up a gear and piled the pressure on us. It was from this that Garvey won a short corner and eventually scored from it. They kept the pressure on and before long it was 3-1 and we were looking down and out. After a bit of a rough spell we got our second wind and through some excellent work from Birtie and an excellent reverse stick goal from Jamesy greer we were back in the game. now that we were back in it we were pusshing to get the equaliser and the pressure was pilling on Garvey when Birtie got through the defence and went to round the keeper when the keeper cleaned him out. Penalty. After a bit of a chat with Jamesy Greer Birtie Stepped up to the spot. The tension was immense and u could have cut the silence with a knife, Birtie stepped forward, cocked his leg and let off the flick but unfortunatelly did not connect properly and the ball bobbled along the floor for the keeper to save. There went the draw and another point. All in all it was a better performance in the second half than in the first and we were beet by a team who school thier kids from a very young age. So well done everyone.
