7th Sep - DOUGLAS HALL 0 GREENWOOD 3
Today our team played douglas hall and recorded a fine 3 nil win. Playing on a very bad pitch Greenwood won the toss and played up the hill for the 1st half. Greenwood found themselves a goal up after their 1st real attack. With some tigerish tackling in midfield the ball fell to the feet of Ryan O Connell who finished the ball to the net to put greenwood one up. Douglas upped the tempo after this and went looking for an equaliser. The back 4 of Steven Mellerick , Evan Coughlan, Ryan McCarthy ,the outstanding Danny Hayes and keeper Aaron Geasley coped with everything Douglas threw at them. Half-time score 1-0.
Playing downhill for the second half Greenwood were the dominant team and deservedly got a second with a powerful header from Danny Hayes. As the half progressed a 3rd goal was scored again from Ryan O Connell. Greenwood thought they had a 4th when Adam Cotter scored with a sweet left footer only to be called for off-side. So it finished Greenwood 3 douglas 0.
Players to mention were the impressive Luke Cotter , Luke (BOOTS) McHale AND Garret O Connor
