Under-14A DIv 5 at Magourney
Coachford – 2
Carrigtwohill United -2
On a cold Saturday morning Carrigtwohill travelled to Coachford for their Under 14A division 5 league fixture.
Carrigtwohill started well on the heavy surface with Adam McCarthy forcing a good save from the Coachford goal keeper in the early minutes of the first half. Carrig went 1 down in the 19th minute with Kane Mellis making a brave save but unfortunately the ball tricked in to give the home team the lead. Carrig were soon back in the game with a lovely finish from Charlie who chipped the ball over the keeper to make it 1 all at half time.
Carrigtwohill stared well in the second half with Adam hitting the crossbar with a header on the 38th minute and two minutes later the home team went 2-1 up when their striker tucked away a through ball.
The Carrig lads kept battling and played the best football in the second half, this was rewarded in 55th minute with a superb individual goal by Charlie, beating 2 players and slotting the ball in the bottom corner to make it 2 all.
Carrig pushed on for the winner but it was not to be. Overall an enjoyable game to watch with both teams playing good football.
Best for Carrigtwohill Adam McCarthy, Charlie Cambridge and Kane Mellis
