The U11 Mid Ulster Predators fine start to the season continued with a great win over Rathfriland Youth. The boys got off to a poor start though, conceding a goal in the 1st 25 seconds. However they lifted their heads and were rewarded when Sean McCavigan got the equaliser minutes later and town went on to dominate the 1st half and lead at half time with goals from David Ward (2) one of which was a well placed free kick, Harry Leavesley with a half volley and Joel Adamson with a excellent drive.
To their credit Rathfriland scored the next 2 goals on the break away. Goal of the game then came from Ben Cochrane who hit the top corner from all of 20 yards out with an excellent shot. A great squad performance with every player giving 100% effort.
Man of the match was Ben Cochrane. Ben filled in well at right back and scored an excellent goal.
Squad: Craig Hibble, Ben Cochrane, Matthew Binks, Joel Russell, Callum Emerson, David Ward, Joel Adamson, Corey Nelson, Sean McCavigan, Harry Leavesley, Dean Bradbury.
