Carrigtwohill – 6
Buttevant A – 0
1st Dec 2019 at Ballyadam
Carrigtwohill United Under-14’s welcomed lower league opponents Buttevant A to Ballyadam for a preliminary round game of the Sketchers Local Cup on Sunday. Carrigtwohill took the game to the opposition from the first whistle and took the lead 5 mins in when striker Mark McCarthy broke through the defence to finish well.
Playing some lovely football, the Carrigtwohill lads continued to have the upper hand all over the pitch, creating plenty of chances. A second goal came when Mark scored an almost identical goal to put the home side two up.
Two more quick goals from Phillip and Mateusz finished the game as a contest before halftime.
The second half started with the Carrig again on the front foot and driving forward at every opportunity. A fifth goal soon followed with Mark getting a deserved hat trick on the day.
Midfielder Paul Browne put the icing on a great team performance when after starting the move by winning the ball in midfield he was on hand to finish a flowing move at the back post just before the referee blew the final whistle.
A very good all-round performance from all 14 lads on the day. Player of the match goes jointly to hat trick hero Mark McCarthy and midfielder Paul Browne who both played very well all game.
Player of the Match: Paul Browne and Mark McCarthy
