The O'Rourke Family U17 League
Six goal thriller in Tallow
Brideview Utd. 3 Lismore 3
A six goal thriller, a point a piece but the result was good enough for our boys to clinch the league title.
Eoin McGrath was Uts' hero here scoring all three goals. The first came after 9 minutes when a mistake in Lismores defence saw McGrath pounce and shoot home. Paudie Hynes and Mark Dalton went close to increasing Utds lead.
Lismore got back on lefvel terms in the 24th minute; Jake Chambers was denied by Lismore's keeper. The visitors took the lead in the 31st minute but Utd, got back on level terms when McGrath found the net from a free kick. It was now 2-2 and a real cracker of a game.
Again the visitors restored their one goal advantage after 42mins and they held this lead at the break.
The second half saw the game swing end to end. Tom Dalton brought off a terrific save in the 49th minute. A penalty to Utd in the 51st minute saw McGrath grab his hat trick and both sides went looking for the winner.
Utd did have another penalty to win all three points but the keeper brought off a marvellous save. McGrath was again denied by the visitors keeper in the 85th minute but the game ended 3-3 which was enough to see Utd crowned champions. This was a terrific game of football by both sides and both clubs can look forward to the year ahead.
