U16 Football – Slaughtmanus v ER – 2 May 2013

Slaughtmanus v Eoghan Rua


 0-3 to 10-12

Played in windy conditions last Thursday night this was an encounter which was hard to predict. The Coleraine lads quickly found their feet though and their play at times mesmerised their opponents. Slaughtmanus had a number of fine performers who became intent on playing the man instead of the ball at times. The referee at times had some difficult decisions to make, but throughout the whole game only two players were booked. The Eoghan Rua team kept their shape and discipline and by half time were 6-8 to 0-2 ahead thanks to a brace of goals each from Hal McGonigle, Jack O’Doherty and Paddy Mullan.

In the second half The Coleraine team made a number of changes. Shea Eastwood entered the fray and continued his scoring bonanza with a coolly taken strike midway through the half. Another to make an impact was Aaron Doherty who scored a fabulous point despite the attentions of two defenders. Hal McGonigle and Jack O’Doherty went on to complete their hat-tricks. Nial Brown again a return to his natural form with a commanding display and fine running with and without the ball. He finished with a goal and three points.

The defense had a quieter than usual day but Connor Boyle was again the pick of the bunch with great positioning play and fine distribution.
