Maisie’s 1 The Auld Rogue 1
Maisie’s win 4-2 on penalties
This game started at a frantic pace with a youthful Auld Rogue side going at the more experienced Maisie’s. Just as the game settled down, Maisie’s were awarded a dubious penalty which Paul Phelan slotted home. The second half saw Maisie’s keep The Rogue at bay but with Kyle Doherty pulling the strings, there was always a chance of an equalizer. With two minutes left on the clock, a deflected effort from Doherty crept past Dean Purcell to send the game into extra time but not before a pure piece of brilliance from Paul Phelan for Maisie’s when he hit a 50 yard shot that rattled the post in the last minute. Extra time produced little as both teams sat back with David Sheridan missing a sitter to win it for Maisie’s. The shoot out was always going to be a lottery with Dean Purcell being the hero saving two spot kicks and scoring 1 to win it for Maisie’s.
This brings the curtain down on this years pubs league with Mick Cummins leading his team to the trophy once again. Stephen Bible for Maisie’s won the man of the match award for his towering display at centre back.
