A competitive match between the two Greystone U17 sides saw Athletic triumph 4-1.
The first half started with Rovers pressing high and not giving Athletic any time or space. Athletic’s passing game took a while to click into gear but when it did it was highly effective with some flowing football resulting in some well worked goals. Both sides were trying to get the ball down and play, but there was also a competitive edge to the game with no quarter given or asked!
Half time came with the score 4-0.
The second half was a more disjointed affair with Athletic not passing as they had in the first and Rover’s midfield trio exerting more control. This saw them scoring late on to make the score 4-1.
Positives for both sides with Athletic’s good first half and Rover’s coming back strongly in the second.
Thanks to Kieran Whalen who refereed the game well.
