MU13s Take Down Eagles

The game started off slowly with all the play in the middle of the park. On the 10th min Ryan Matthews played a ball over the top for Stefan King only for the keepers quick reactions to prevent Stefan from breaking the deadlock.

Lurgan had most of the play and could have scored on the 12th min. Codey Ferris hit a low shot only for the defender to get a touch which took all the sting out of the shot and collected by the keeper. Armagh had a couple of chances only for Levi and Ciaran’s brilliant intervention.

Lurgan where soon rewarded when King broke free from the defence and shot past the keeper on the 18th min. The game became very scrappy with neither team taking control. On the last min of half time. Armagh broke free and scored with their first shot in goal.

The second half started the same as the first. With both teams standing off the ball. Lurgan had a couple of chances but failed to capitalise. Armagh broke free on the 45th min and had an open net. The striker hit his shot just past the post. Lurgan tightened up and on the 58th min King sealed it with a lovely deserved goal dancing past 2 players and slotting the ball home. Armagh couldn’t find a way to break Lurgan down in the last 2 mins. Great win boys.
