Oct 21st – NC U14 Springfield (11) v (0) Watergrasshill United

Today our National Cup campaign came to an end with a heavy loss to Springfield. The score line was a bit harsh to be honest as the game was there for the taking. Springfield started the game very strong and at time over ran us. To the lads credit, they battled back very strong and played some impressive football at times with excellent running and passing movements. Two breakaway goals resulted from one on ones with Kiernan.

Half time score of  Springfield 2  WGH 0.

This was a cup game and there had to be a winner, so we as a team decided that we would go for it. An early goal from Springfield in the second half forced us to go for broke. This was to no avail as the game rolled on so did the goals for Springfield. We were awarded a penalty towards the end and this highlighted our luck when we missed this as well.

The lads played some excellent football at times and it was very enjoyable to watch. This defeat will make us stronger but on the day the better team won.

Final Score: Springfield 11 WGH 0

Match Captain: Adam

Squad: Kiernan, Conor, Luke, Jack,  Adam, Darren, Chris, James, Andrew, Seamus, Daniel, Colin
