Dec 11 – Another great win for the Under 11’s Well Done to ALL

U11's Watergrasshill Utd v Strand United

The U11's continued their unbeaten run this season with a hard fought 3 : 1 victory over a competitive Strand United Team on Sunday the 11th of December. The match was played in challenging circumstances with very soft pitch conditions making it difficult to move the ball around at pace. WGH dominated the game in terms of possession and created a lot of scoring chances in the first half but the game was still tied at 0 : 0 at the interval mainly due to a string of excellent saves by the strand goalkeeper. The pressure finally told early in the second half with a superb individual goal by Daire O Leary followed shortly by another WGH goal from James O Leary direct from a free kick. Strand in fairness kept at it and were  rewarded with a goal shortly afterwards and with the game still up for grabs Tim Hegarty, playing on the right side of midfield, went on a long jinky run to finish low in the left corner of the strand net. Throughout the game the whole team played excellently and the defence of Ceadan Hogan, Rob McKenna, Shane O Reilly and Cathal Fitzgerald/Harry Buscievich gave nothing away. Credit also to Sean Desmond Paddy King and Eoin Griffin for the tireless efforts in front of goals and spare a thought for our goalie Colm Curtin who had to try to keep himself warm on the goal line on a very chilly morning !
