Buttevant U12 vs. Watergrasshill United U12


While most of the games in the CSL were cancelled because of the torrential downpours, the U12 travelled to Buttevant for a 10:30 kick off. Our 3rd game this season and the first time we had all 13 players on the match card.

Great to see that last weeks training session on corners was effectively in the 2nd minute of the first half when a corner from Rory found Adam's head. 0-1.  Aaron followed only a minute later but his shot just went wide. A curved shot from the Buttevant midfielder put them level again. 1-1. Game on. Another corner, this time from Eoghan, found Rory. Rory didn't hesitate and put the 1-2 in the back of the net. Today every set piece was dangerous, and Adam hit the crossbar from another corner only  a few minutes after we took the lead. We struggled to clear the ball due to the wet conditions enabling Buttevant to come back in the game again. 2-2. Rory put us back in the lead for the third time not long after. 2-3. Buttevant levelled the score again, in the last minute of the first half. Half time score. Buttevant U12 (3) - Watergrasshill U12 (3). We send out the same squad after half time, but we started to make a real impact when we changed some of our positions and introduced our subs. A free kick from Eoghan was picked up by Brendan, who put the 3-4 on the score card. Nicky proved again to have an eye for goals as he scored a true hattrick within 5 minutes. (45", 47" and 50"). Adam added another one 5 minutes from time. Buttevant escaped the offsite trap in the last minute and pulled one back. The second half was an eye opener in which we saw some great passing, determination and some great character.  Final Score: Buttevant (4) - Watergrasshill (8). Well done lads. Well deserved win.

Special thanks for all parents that got drenched on the sideline and for all who helped out with the car pooling.
