Brideview Utd AFC Schoolboy/girl Notes
Leonard Fraser Cup Semi Final second leg (U17)
Terrific Fight Back by United
What a game we had in Tallow on Saturday afternoon. Down 3-2 from the first leg Utd went further behind inside the opening two minutes but the boys staged a remarkable comeback to reach the final against all the odds.
Our U9 acdemy were in action agains Mogeely on Saturday morning.
Results: Leonard Fraser Cup Semi Final, Brideview Utd 4, Lismore 1 (Agg 6-4).
This local derby produced an unexpected result as Utd had to field withour four first team players added to the fact that we were already 3-2 down from the first leg. Then with just two minutes gone Lismore struck what looked like to be the killer blow for Utd. The game continued with the visitors on top and they did miss some good chances.
Then after 31 minutes Kieran Crawford grabbed an equiliser for Utd and a few minutes later Stewart tested the Lismore keeper who got down well to bring off a marvellous save. At the break the sides went in level at 1-1.
It turned the game for Utd. Crawford was in again in the 61st minute to increase Utds lead. To be fare the visitors did fight back but Utds keeper Beecher and his back four of Cunningham, Chambers, Hurley and Scotton kept the visitors at bay. As the game entered added time Crawford was upended in the visitors box. Crawford himself took the penalty and gave the keeper no chance. So Crawford grabbed himself a hat trick which was well deserved. In midfield Lenehan, Captain Aherne, Stewart and Sheehan ran themselves into the ground so to speak. Almedia also played well throughout helping out his defence. All in all a terrific game of football from a bunch of boys who fought back in true Utd fashion. Wel ldone lads.
Utd: D. Beecher, W. Cunningham, E. Scotton, J. Chambers, C. Hurley, E. Lenehan, B. Aherne, M. Stewart, J. Sheehan, K. Crawford,
