U18 Douglas v. Nagle


Douglas Community School 2
Nagle 4

Douglas started the match badly and were two nil down midway through the first half. Mr O’Leary who had started the game with one up front made some tactical switches at this point. Matthew Murphy came on for James Archer and Douglas went with two up front. The tactical switches had an immediate effect and within minutes Douglas has pulled a goal back through an Ian Slattery header. Within minutes Douglas had created two good chances which were missed. The first half ended two one to Nagle.

Douglas started the second half well and were exerting good pressure. Douglas made another sub and David Kra came on for Dennis O’Sullivan. A ball came back to Mark Drumin on the edge of the box and he took a shot which was deflected twice and went in to equalise for Douglas. Within minutes of Douglas equalising Nagle were back in the lead after a shot from the edge of the area went in. Nagle’s fourth goal came when Douglas were putting them under pressure and they counter attacked. This is how the game ended a disappointing result for Douglas.
