Ringmahon Rangers – 2
Carrigtwohill United – 2
In a highly entertaining clash away from home we drew 2 – 2.
We were straight out of the blocks from the 1st minute stringing some lovely passes around the pitch putting the opposition on the back foot.
Our 1st chance of the game came from a fast kick out to our left back Evan Tovey who gave a ball into midfield we’re Sam Collins set Matty korona in behind the opposition defence, Matty hit a lovely curling shot to the far corn which just went wide.
Seconds later another chance this time Alex Kadula broke up the play in midfield and squared the ball to Sam who Ryan Moore away down the right, Ryan passed 2 players and laid it off to Matty who shot deflected just wide.
After a near perfect 1st half somehow it was scoreless at half time.
Second half started with Carrigtohill putting the pressure on again and winning a corner, the ball was whipped in by Sam and the header broke to Filip who rifled the ball into the net, 1 – 0.
We missed an opportunity to extend our lead when Matty struck a beautiful shot just wide.
We conceded a corner under dubious circumstances, both our defender’s adamant ball was over the byline but a corner was conceded, from resulting corner a penalty was giving due to handball, harsh, but right call, 1-1.
Again we pushed for another goal but Scott’s shot ran across the goal line and into the keeper’s hands after a shot from 20 yards out.
After a 50 50 challenge in midfield Aaron Sheehan came away with the ball only to be dragged back, no free kick awarded and ball lost which another 50 50 challenge with Malachy Kelleher harshly resulted in a free kick to the opposition, free kick flung in and breaking ball fell to the opposition 2 – 1 down.
We peppered the opposition goal with shots from Matty, Ryan Collins and Ryan Moore to no avail.
In injury time we won a corner that was flicked on at the near post to the on rushing Matty who hit the net to the delight of the away team and there dugout.
Game finished 2 – 2.
3 games undefeated now and we’ll keep going onto the next challenge next week.
Best performer’s of the day Sam Collins, Aaron Sheehan and Ryan Collins.
