Friday 20th October – SBYFL under 18’s
Downpatrick FC 2 v Woodvale FC 1
After a bad run Downpatrick went to league leaders Woodvale on Friday night, they started the game playing into a strong wind, but were quickly out of the blocks and pressed and harried the Woodvale players giving them no time on the ball. Downpatrick got there reward when Corey McCoubrey won the ball on the edge of the box and crossed for Declan Looney to get between the two centre halves to volley home and put his side in front. A lapse in concentration allowed Woodvale to equalise with in two minutes to level the game.
After 25 minutes Declan Looney was replaced by James Peacock who as Looney did never stopped and a few minutes later he got on the end of a cross from Andrew McCoubrey to tap the ball into the Woodvale net. It was all hands on deck after this as Woodvale pressed a resolute Downpatrick defence that was equal to everything Woodvale threw at them, with Ryan Cassidy, Caolain Logue, Thomas Fitzsimmons and Adam Jervis keeping them at bay and seeing the game out for an important victory.
