Under 13 Premier get the better Of Douglas Hall
In the second of 3 encounters between the 2 teams there was a place in the semi final of the Con Elliott cup up for grabs.
It was a game that had wind, rain, sun and hearts racing. Within 30 mins the lads were staring at a 3-0 deficit as Youghal attacked wave after wave. However, as has been their trade mark this season the lads didn’t give up and a smooth pass from Dylan Buckley was buried in the back of the net by David Ruddock on the stoke of half time.
Having introduced Rhys Callnan, Roger Timon and Ben Quilligan in the second half the lads continued as they left off and within 10 mins there was just a goal separating the 2 sides following a sweet header from Roger Timon top left corner gave the goal keeper no chance. 2-3. The equaliser came from a sublime lob by Ben Quilligan who coolly tapped the the ball over the keepers head. 3-3. Youghal weren’t giving up and, despite having the bare minimum of 11 players, saw out a draw forcing extra time. Any notion that the away team would tire in extra time was quashed when a rebound from the upright was headed into the net from only a few yards out giving them the lead. Corinthians weren’t short of chances to equalise but couldn’t cross the line before the game was blown up. The cup run might be over but the final game in this trilogy is the big one. A win next Saturday will secure our place in D2 and keep the doors open for promotion. All to play for.
