Redcastle Utd 1 QPS Reserves 1
The visitors had the first opportunity when Josh Mclaughlin’s goal boundshot from Gavin Grant’s cross was blocked by defender in the first minute. Mc Laughlin threatened again when Redcastle lost the ball in midfield but Mc Cole rescued the home side with a full stretch save. Redcastle’s Harry Mc Quillian then set up Sean Curran but he dragged his shot wide when well placed. The visitors took the lead when Jack Mc Connellogue caught the home defence napping to slot home. Colm Mc Laughlin replied for the home side and had a header cleared off the line from a Mc Quillan corner. Redcastle tried to get more into the game as the second half began and from a Eunan Mullen corner McQuillan’s goal bound effort was cleared away to safety. The Muff side side were still dangerous on the break and a Seamus Doherty block prevented a certain goal after the home keeper spilled a high ball. Joe Mc Cauley got Redcastle back in the game when he fired a rocket to the top corner to drag the home side level. Buoyed by this Redcastle pushed for a
winner but they were left to rue a number of near misses. The visitors were reduced to ten men on seventy five minutes and were now under constant pressure from the home side. Redcastle couldn’t make the required breakthrough and the Muff men could have won the game on the break when Josh Mclaughlin was denied by a great Mc Cole save.
