2005s V Tullycarnet
Tullycarnet 3 - 6 Ards FC Academy
A match played in stark contrast to recent fixtures, with a strong battling performance to secure the win.
This was a true test for the squad, with absences due to illness requiring players to step up and show their quality. Once again, every player proved their worth!
An early conceded goal merely gave the impetus for the midfield and striking pair to create and finish opportunities superbly. With defensive cover working hard and providing last-ditch tackles, combined with yet another magnificent goalkeeping display, the team pulled together.
Even with a 4-1 lead at the start of the second half, the boys remained focused. Another conceded goal early on could have damaged confidence, but the team regrouped and fought for each other to take back control.
A different style of play was needed for this match; one of commitment, courage and determination. Everyone should be proud that, through their endeavour, that’s what was delivered.
Well done everybody!
