May 7th – Youghal U8 (5) vs Watergrasshill Utd U8 (4)

On the sunny bank holiday monday we all traveled to Youghal for our away fixture against Youghal United.
On a perfect pitch, we got off to a great start when Eoghan made a great pass to Joseph from the left hand side (0-1). Youghal equalized within minutes. They put us under fierce pressure in the box and the equalizer came through an unlucky own goal. Some great goalkeeping from Ryan prevented Youghal scoring 2 or 3 goals and his saves kept us in the game. Joseph was positioned as full forward during the first two periods of the game and it didn't take long for Joseph to put number 2 in the net. Youghal played some great pressing play and equalized just before the end of the period. In the second period, Dylan intercepted a free kick by the Youghal goalkeeper and scored the 2-3 from the half way line in an empty goal. Within 5 minutes Youghal came back in the game with the equalizer, followed by a fantastic solo from their own half. 4-3 was the score at the end of the 2nd period. A great goal from Brendan from the right hand side brought us the equalizer at the start of the final period. Youghal came back strong and scored the winning goal through another great solo. We kept pressing towards the end of the game, but the lack of subs started to play against us as the lads where feeling the strain of having to play a full 45 minutes agains a great opponent.

Final Score: Youghal (5) - Watergrasshill (4).

Watergrasshill were very unlucky not to get a least a point from this game. We had plenty of chances. The lads worked very hard and gave it their all. Hopefully we will learn from our first defeat and come out strong during next weeks match.

Thanks to all the parents who traveled to Youghal and supported the team and to Youghal United for hosting the match.

Team; Eoin, Brendan, Darragh, Joseph,  Dylan, Eoghan, Ryan, Daniel
