Match Report - 15 Mar 2015, Maclay Football Club 2015 lost to Old Belmont


Sunday 15th March 2015

CSL Division 1
Old Belmont 2 (1) v Maclay 1 (0)
Scorer: J Rochford (76 min)

Maclay made six changes for this match but to be honest an unchanged team would probably have struggled just as much on this pitch.

Old Belmont grabbed an early lead after 3 minutes when a well struck shot thundered past Chris Young and into the Maclay net.

Maclay just couldn’t get their usual passing game going and were unable to adjust to the massive slope that ran from one side of the pitch to the other. Pat Hanlon’s impressive overhead kick and Joe Rochford’s snap shot were the closest Maclay came to a goal in the first half.

The second haf produced more of the same as a very hard working Belmont team closed Maclay down as quickly as they could whilst still getting forward at every opportunity.

And then out of nowhere, JOE ROCHFORD found the back of the net 14 minutes from the end with a wonderful looping shot from outside the box. Game on – or so we thought. 4 minutes later Belmont converted a cross from the right to restore their one goal lead. Joe Rochford and Peter Bryan both had chances to equalise in the last 5 minutes but it was not to be.

JOE ROCHFORD won Man of the Match for his superb goal and for never giving up on lost causes.

Squad: C Young, B Rochford, J O’Connor, B Gosling (capt), K Bonney, B O’Connor, S Hodja, R Prunty (not used), P Hanlon, I Ranger, J Roberts, J Rochford, Y Seodi & P Bryan

Man of Match: JOE ROCHFORD
