Sat 18 Oct 2008




Star player: Luke Jones

Griffithstown A

We were well aware going into this game that Griffithstown A would present a powerful challenge to our 100% record, notwithstanding the fact that we again had certain players unavailable for various reasons. This time we were again without Chris Ham and in addition Dan and Michael D were also not around. We were however able to welcome back Matt, Chris Pike and Nick.

After a fairly even first five minutes Griffithstown were awarded a penalty that they were unable to convert as the kick was driven over the bar.. However we were caught out a few minutes later as a neat ball over the top saw the Griffithstown striker nip in and steer the ball past Tom for a well taken goal to give them the lead.

Our response to this was superb and we proceeded to control the game and in doing so created a host of good opportunities. Once again we came up against a very determined defence and a goalkeeper who was in inspired form making a number of fine saves.

Griffithstown managed to hold on to their 1-0 lead until half-time, but as the boys came off we felt confident that it was only a matter of time before we broke them down and so we just asked for more of the same.

From the start of the second-half we continued to dominate the game in the same manner as we had the first and were very quickly on level terms. A beautifully flighted corner from Chris P was met at the near post by Sangam and headed deftly home.
Not long after, Chris turned from provider to finisher as he rose magnificently to head home a pinpoint cross from Luke Jones.

For the rest of the match we maintained our control of the game restricting Griffithstown to just a couple of chances while continuing to create numerous ones for ourselves, and the game was wrapped up with a great goal from Nick who picked the ball up just inside the Griffithstown half, beat 2 men and smashed the ball passed the despairing dive of their keeper from 30 yards.

After a slight dip in from last week, we responded with a strong performance that again saw us play some great football.
