Kevin Dillon Cup – Mallow U11A (2) – Watergrasshill U11A (3)

Our U11A team reached the last 16 of the Kevin Dillon Cup after getting a bye for the first round and a hard earned win today in Mallow. Our battle plan and all our prep work went out the window when 4 of our players got lost on the way to Mallow and we had to kick off the match with 8 players. Luckily the players only missed the first 5 minutes as a strong Mallow was putting on the pressure to our back line. The goal Mallow scored in the 7th minute looked offside, but still counted. A few great saves from Ben F, kept us in the game. We made a few changes in the lineup and found our composure. A lucky goal from Jake put us back in the game. A fantastic free kick from ross put us 1 ahead against the game of play. HT  Mallow U11A (1) - Watergrasshill U11A (2). Mallow came back 3 minutes into the second half 2-2. Mallow put us under fierce pressure for a while and we had to make a few changes in the back. We took a chance by moving Ross in midfield and Ben back in the center back position. We were playing some great pressing and counter play on the left hand side where Ben F used his strenght over and over again. A free kick decided the game today,  another fantastic curve ball from Ross put our U11A team in the last 16 of the Cup. Final Score : Mallow United U11A (2) - Watergrasshill United U11A (3)
