Edenderry Town Red 1 vs Prosperous United 1
A heavy pitch and a tough physical battle is what faced the lads today and that's how it turned out.. Every one got stuck in from the whistle and nothing was left on the pitch between two evenly matched teams by the end of the game.
Prosperous made a bright start and played well for the first quarter, Edenderry kept putting pressure on the Prosperous midfield and defense and were a constant threat at set pieces with their greater height. Shortly before half time the breakthrough for Edenderry came with a lucky goal as Luke made a great save but it only cleared to an approaching Edenderry player who slotted it home. Prosperous came out in the second half with more purpose and had Edenderry on the back foot for much of the half. There was penalty claims for both teams but the ref waved play on each time. The Prosperous goal came when Shane got hold of the ball on the left and after slipping a couple of tackles fired a fierce shot at the goal which the keeper couldn't hold and Billy was there to tap it in. Each team had chances to win after this but neither could finish them and the game finished 1-1. A good away game for Prosperous. Well done lads. (Ger)
