U12 Division 5 : Midleton 1 Corkbeg 2
Thrills , spills and lots of excitement sum up this cracking game .
Both sides were hugely committed in this local derby and put up a great hours entertainment for the large crowd. Midleton play a nice brand of passing football that’s very easy on the eye whereas the beg favour a more direct style – It was a contrast that made for a great game and which in truth a share of the spoils would probably have been the right result.
The beg went ahead midway through the first half with an Arron Berry special from a direct free kick about 25 yards from goal. Both teams came close to scoring but found both keepers in super form.
Midleton stormed into the game in the second half and their neat passing had the beg midfield in trouble – Only some last gasp defending kept the magpies at bay – Gavin Kelly and Arron Berry doing some great work . The beg were limited to counter attacks with Jordan Tynan in particular keeping the Midleton defenders busy. You sensed a Midleton goal was coming and sure enough it arrived with a brilliant free kick that fizzed into the net – The game took on new life now and both teams went for the winner – It fell for the beg when a long ball over the top caught the magpie defenders off guard and Jordan Tynan kept his composure to slot home the winner . The beg will be happy to have got out of this game with max points but they will know a lot more work needs to be put in on the training ground if they are to maintain their unbeaten start to the season
