CYFC U15s Battle Hard For Draw

CYFC u15s 0 Glenavon 0
Last Saturday Cookstown welcomed the Lurgan Blues to MUSA in a National league fixture. Despite Glenavon missing a couple of players manager Gerry Quinn knew that this was going to be a close affair against one of the teams fighting for the league title. In the opening salvos Glenavon’s passing out from the back and possession play left Cookstown’s midfield struggling to get a foot into the game with the back five of Moore, Patterson, McErlean, Kenning and Bigger having to be at their best to withstand the Blue’s pressure. Donaghy, Murphy and Gallagher all had decent chances as the half move on as Cookstown tried to impose their power and physicality. Into the second half the Lurgan boys kept to their game plan with keeper Moore making 3 fantastic saves with his legs. Glenavon should have scored the opener with their midfielder blazing over from 15 yards. But Cookstown could have won it when new signing Piotr Gabrysiak was foiled by a good save with ten minutes remaining. A brilliant cross right at the death by Mackle almost found Gallagher and Donaghy which would have been a sweet victory and reward for all the hard work and togetherness shown by the boys. MOM Ben McErlean.
