Bellurgan United 1 Ardee Celtic 2
There was heartbreak for Bellurgan United today in Flynn Park as they exited the U12 Sketchers National Cup by the narrowest of margins going down 2 – 1 to Ardee Celtic.
Ardee went into a 2 nil first half lead however Bellurgan finished the strongest and got a fine goal back just before half time with Thomas Keenan finding the back of the net.
Bellurgan had numerous 2nd half chances to level the scores but they found the Ardee defence in fine form with their goalkeeper producing a string of top class saves.
Bellurgan threw the “kitchen sink” at the opposition for the last 10 minutes but just could not find the elusive equaliser. Very unlucky to lose the game but with a very attractive style of play and a great attitude this team will have their day in the sun.
Bellurgans Man of the Match was Liam McCabe. Well done to Liam and all the lads.
