The game started at a great pace with slick flowing football from both sides which was pleasing to the eye with Unsworth slightly the better team .
Out first effort came from Samir who was fulfilling the promise he has shown with a much harder working performance and getting in the tackles in midfield which is a pre requisite for the position, not letting the opposition settle . He found Dev who headed just wide .
Against the run of play and their first real effort on goal we didn't clear our lines panicking somewhat and rather than putting our foot through the ball to clear if in doubt a slice found a Midway forward and the ball squirmed into the back of the net from a soft shot.
A Rowie run at the heart of the Midway team found Dylan to pick up the pieces but only the latter will be able to tell you how the ball was screwed wide . Dylan is showing some really promising signs but he knows he needs to work hard to get his fitness to where it needs to be .
Dev then lobbed the keeper but the ball was somehow saved on the line .
At half time there was nothing but praise for the lads only asking for more of the same and a few more shots .
We started well again Dev finding Lewis out wide but whose shot went over the bar .
The latter then linked up well with Samir who held up the ball until Quinn went outside him , the ball was released into his stride and Quinn hit a rasper which would have been a cracker had it not just gone an inch over .
Lewis then shot over again from an another Devan assist linking up well once again .
Joe then picked up the ball just outside our box and with a long through ball he found space behind their back four which Dev took full advantage of beating their keeper to the ball to place it round him and into the net to draw level and to go into double figures with his goal tally .
A throw in from Quinn then found Oisin who took the ball at his feet , feinted to the right and moved left to the corner of the box where he unleashed an unstoppable shot into the roof of the net leaving the keeper with no chance . This is a trademark goal from a player of real quality . My hope is that he makes more of a habit .
As Unsworth played out the game Jamie who had played well throughout allowed a 50 yard punt from a free kick to sail into the net over him to give Midway a draw .
Whatever your opinion of the result the game was of a high quality with excellent play all over the field and was highly entertaining .
