Downpatrick under 18’s suffer defeat under lights to neighbours Carryduff, click on the to find out how…
Friday 13th October – SBYFL under 18’s
Downpatrick FC 1 v Carryduff 4
A depleted Downpatrick side took to the field with no subs and 2 players just out of their sick beds to produce a fine performance pushing a strong Carryduff team until well into the second half. Downpatrick went behind early on from a scrappy corner, then Andrew McCoubrey equalised within minutes with a well taken goal.
Carryduff strength in depth helped them as they were able to bring on fresh legs as Downpatrick tired and in the last few minutes. Downpatrick conceded three late goals and were unlucky to lose the game by such a margin. Each of the Downpatrick players stood out but Declan Looney and Corey McCoubrey deserve special praise for their work rate as they never stopped trying.
