Under 14 National Cup

Blarney United 6 - 1 Watergrasshill United National Cup

Watergrasshill were once again pitied against Blarney who are 2 Divisions above us and once again they had the home draw which meant this game was played on an Astro Pitch. So with out saying we were 3 goals down within 15 minutes and all mainly down to the playing surface as our lads could not get to grip with the Astro pitch. Half time 4-0. Second half we adapted to the pitch and got a hold on the game. WGH UTD tested the Blarney keeper and come close on a few occasions before Daniel got a sweet goal, chipped the keeper, 4-1. Within a few minutes of this we were down to 10 players as our keeper got injured and we had our 2 subs available on the day on, we had to play the last 30 minutes with 10 players. Blarney caught us with two break away goals as we pushed on trying to get back into the game. It must be said Blarney deserved this win but were certainly not 5 goals better than us and it put teams like ourselves at a disadvantage when we have to play games like these on Astro. Maybe this needs to be looked at in the future as it puts any team not used to it at a major disadvantage. A great performance by all and if this game was on a grass surface it would have been a lot closer game Well done and Thanks to all who Traveled

Squad: Aaron, Adam, Ronan, Luke, Andrew, Kenneth, Cathal, DJ, Jack, Daniel, Dylan, Niall, Kieran
