U11a Local Cup

Our U11a's had an early exit from the Local Cup yesterday losing out to division 5 leaders Bandon early Saturday morning. The lads had to work hard to keep a well passing and moving Bandon at bay and we were well able for them in the first half. Eoin, Ben O'S, David and Ross, were in control at the back, Eimantas, Eoghan, Sam and Jack in midfield, Ben Flanagan played a stormer in goal and Jake created havoc up front. Ross Hennessy put us 1-0 up by curling his free kick behind the Bandon goalie Half time score: Watergrasshill United U11a (0) - Midleton (1).

12 minutes into the second half, Bandon came back and scored the equaliser. Bandon kept pressing and created a few clear cut chances, but some solid goalkeeping from Ben kept us in the game. An unfortunate own goal made it 1-2. We took a gamble, we gave it our all and we put everyone up front. The gamble backfired and Bandon caught us on the break and made it 1-3. Another own goal made it 1-4 2 minutes before time. A score that didn't reflect all the effort and chances we had in the first half. A great game of football between two teams who gave it their all in the quest for victory. Final Score: Watergrasshill United U11a (1) - Bandon (4).
