Watergrasshill U12B progress to the 3rd round of the Albert Conboye Cup


The U12b'c made in through to the third round of the Albert Conboye Cup in a bruising encounter against Div 4 side Cobh Ramblers at Skehanagh Park yeaterday. We started off with Daniel in goal, and a back line of Eoin, Shane and Kieran supported by Ben, Eimantas and Eoghan in midfield. Darragh and Colm up front made it the Cobh back difficult from the very beginning. Darragh put his name on the goal sheet only 4 minutes into the game. Cobb came back strong and equalised only a few minutes later. A well delivered corner kick from Ben was headed in the goal by Colm in the 20th minute, only to be cancelled out by a header from a Cobh corner kick 2 minutes later. Both sides had chances as the game progressed but some great saves from Daniel and some solid defending from Eoin, Shane and Kieran kept us in the game. Eldon was introduced towards the end of the first half to add some more pace to the forwards, immedately creating some chances for Ben and Colm. Half time score ... Watergrasshill U12B (2) - Cobh Ramblers  (2).

Both sides had chances in the second half with Watergrasshill having the superiority in possession through Ben, Eimantas & Darragh and tireless efforts of Colm and Eldon. It was Eldon in the 20th minute of the second half that put us ahead again. We changed our formation to a back 4 to respond to the waves of attacks that the Ramblers threw at us towards the end of the game. In the last minute of the match, Colm escaped the offside trap and lashed the ball in the back of the net. Final Score: Watergrasshill U12B (4) - Cobh Ramblers U12 (2). Great game lads, you had to fight hard for it, a well deserved win through a great team effort.
