WGH UTD v Macroom


Watergrasshill United 7 Macroom 0

Yesterday we hosted Macroom. From the very kick off we set a high tempo, our midfield pairing of Adam o Sullivan and Owen Desmond competed for every single ball allowing nothing to pass them. With some beautifull balls being played into our forward line we were very unlucky not to capitalize early on with a goal. With 25 mins gone and wgh dominating the game we got a free kick just outside the Macroom box. Dan Dennehy stepped up to take the free. With a 3 man wall in front of him he curled the ball in to the top left hand coner of the goal. A magnificent free kick and we were off the mark. It finished 1-0 at half time no more than what we had deserved.
As expected in the start of the second half macroom came out fighting. Even though our full back line of Darren Healy, Luke mc Carthy,Colin Croinin and Conor Crowley were put under pressure for the first 10 mins they held firm.
With 15 mins gone we broke from midfield down the left wing with Andrew Desmond racing into the box where he was pulled down and wgh were awarded a penalty. Dan Dennehy stepped up to get his second goal of the game.
From there on wgh took over and grew in confidence and with another 4 goals to bring his personel tally for the day to 6 and not only for his goals but his overall work rate Dan Dennehy was awarded man of match. Wgh went on to score once more with a fantastic individual goal from Andrew Desmond down the left wing, no more than what he deserved for his hard work through out the entire match.
As well as being prolific in front of goal, more importantly we kept a clean sheet. Credit is due to macroom who never gave up and played galantly until the final whistle.
Finally a big well done to all the players from number 1 to 16 and thanks to all the parents who came up to support us.
