Our juvenile footballers drew with the Starlights last night after extra time. 3-15 to 4-12.
Shels went into the break 1 point down 2-4 to 2-5. In the second half Stephen McGuire had what looked like a perfectly fine goal disallowed. Nonetheless, Shels fought hard and were unlucky only to have the draw at the final whistle. 3-10 to 4-7. In the first half of extra time, Shels piled on the pressure and went into the break two points ahead. However Starlights are not unbeaten in this campaign for nothing and held strong to force the second draw of the night. 3-15 to 4-12. This was a solid all round team performance, where everyman had to do his job and no-one was found wanting. Kevin O’Connor was top scorer on the night 1-10, Tony Smith and Stephen McGuire 1 goal each. Graham Staples and Conor Forde 2 points each and Shane Carter 1 point. Best of luck on replay lads.
