Riverstown U11a (1) – Watergrasshill U11a (2)

Our U11a's faced Riverstown in a local derby today at the Glanmire Community pitch. A match that we controlled for 59 minutes. A great compliment goes out to the lads for bouncing back from the loss against CorkBeg by giving it their all. Eoin, Eimantas and Garreth, helped by Ross, were in control at the back and didn't give much away all match. Our goalie for the day, Louie, had to perform one or two saves and unfortunately had to get one ball out of the net. Our hardworking midfield of Callum, Sam, Ben and David saw their hard work rewarded in the 20th minute when a fantastic performed attack started by Ross, forwarded to Ben and perfectly curved around the Goalie by Callum made it 1-0. Half time score: Riverstown U11a (0) - Watergrasshill United U11a (1). In the second half we made some changes and introduced Jim to the forward position and we our striker Jake to the wing. Jake played a stormer on the right wing and produced a perfect pass that Jim finished with a powerful shot. Well done Jim, great goal. Riverstown U11a (0) - Watergrasshill United U11a (2). We kept pressing and pressing and like in the first half we had more of the ball. With attack in our minds, we took our eyes of the ball for one moment at the back. A moment that Riverstown used to score the 1-2. For a minute it looked that Riverstown had a chance to come back in the match, but by adding Sam in the back our lads didn't give anything away in the final remaining 10 minutes. Final Score: Riverstown U11a (1) - Watergrasshill United U11a (2).
