2010s V Portavogie
This morning we made the long trek to a windy Cloughey to play Portavogie.
As expected the lads had a tough match.
We tried to get our game going on the grass but struggled from the start in a strong cross wind. Portavogie were a match in every department throughout. Ards managed to go a goal up after missing several chances, but the home team equalised. Only good goalkeeping kept us from going in at half time behind.
After the break Ards seemed to be asleep and leaked a goal straight after the kick off. Both teams worked very hard in the wind and created chances. Ards scored again with a lovely team effort before Portavogie equalised with a high ball over the top knocked in after an awkward bounce. Portavogie won it in the last minute with a long range drive leaving the keeper no chance. Ards presses hard for the last minute but couldn’t find an equaliser.
Today’s MOTM was Ethan. He scored two great goals. He should’ve had a hat trick but an easier chance eluded him.
