Thunder & lightning delayed the start of this round 6 County league 7 game at Meadowvale on Thursday evening last the 8th of June. It was 15 a side with 2 subs on the full pitch against St Maurs from Rush in the North County. Morgan Tyrrell was our Captain for the game.
When the play got under way Jamie had the 1st of his many scores a point from play after 4 min. Maurs got in for a goal & a point on 5 & 6 minutes to go in front. Mark Maguire got in for a great goal on 13min & Robert with a point from play soon after had us back in front. Omar & Gavin got in for goals on 20 & 23min. Zenon was very unlucky when his goal bound shot came back off the crossbar at this point. On 25min Maurs got through our defence for a couple of goals against the run of play. Gavin kicked a nice point from play on 28min & Mark had the last score of the half a point from a free to leave the H.T Score Gers 3:04 Maurs 3:01.
We started the 2nd half on the attack & were unlucky not to extend our lead. Then in a 6min period we switched off & got hit for 3 goals & 2 points to leave us 8 points behind after 41 minutes. As in the Ballinteer game the boys switched back on. Jamie cut through the Maurs defence before kicking a powerful shot to the Maurs net on 43min to start the come back. Morgan & Mark added points from play to cut the defecit to 3 points. Jamie with 3 great points from frees & Morgan with a great point from play had us back in front. Mark got his 2nd goal of the game on 57min & Alex Mason who had an outstanding game got our last score of the game after a great run from the right he cut in b4 kicking a low hard shot to the net. F.T Score; Gers 6:10 St Maurs 7:03.
This win see’s us move up to 7th in the League 7 table & we are now unbeaten in our last 3 games. We will have 2 more games against St Vincents B & St Marks A before the Summer break. Dates, venues & times for these important games to be advised. A big thanks to Omar & Zenon who played up from our U 12s for this game. Also our umpires Ronan & Fergal. Pauls dad who flagged out the pitch & Omars dad & Ted who did the nets! Also to all the Mums & Dads who shouted on the Gers on what was a very wet evening.
