Our veterans league campaign came to a close tonight in ozier Park but it wasn’t for the lack of trying . We had the possession advantage in first in a very hard fought game but both defences were very good , our best chance falling to scoby who pulled a shot just wide . But at half time it was 0-0 and all to play for .
We started the better in the second half but again both defences were tight , with legs getting tired a few changes were made and we picked up the tempo . With penalty’s looking like the only outcome with 5minutes to go . Kilmacow got a throw on the right hand side , a player was not picked up and skipped past 2 players and played across the box for kilmacow to score what was to be the winning goal.
From kick off a defensive error put us on the back foot but after a great last gasp tackle to everyone’s shock the ref pointed to the penalty spot . Justice was served when Barry Hearn saved the resulting penalty brilliantly .
We threw everything at kilmacow the last few minutes with a couple of close shaves from corners but it wasn’t to be . But it was a brilliant second half of the season from this squad , well done to all .
In the first half a kilmacow player suffered a nasty head injury we wish him all the best .
And last of all congratulations to Kilmacow on winning the plate .
