Today Uni Whites D venture to Rostrevor!
They current are unbeaten but up front I can see an upset!!!!
It’s a great day for football at 23 degrees and it’s a good pitch for the lads to show their stuff.
There are some familiar faces in the Rostrevor lineup. We know a few have some quality but they fall away quickly.
Warm up is done with the whites looking sharp. Rostrevor have done barely any warm up and I think look concerned!
They have a couple of solid unit who are built for comfort not speed!!!
We are underway and it’s a tight start with some willing tackles but whites looking good.
Sol breaks and crosses in and an own goal!!!!
Whites 1 nil up!
Rostrevor break and an error at the back and that’s 1 all. Unlucky
Rostrevor playing the normal way of pushing the boundaries belting us at every opportunity and theres their first yellow! This is on and the whites need to stand up to them
Sol with an amazing run and he brought down in the box and it’s a penalty!!!
But no card!
Johnny lines it up and bang in she goes for a 2-1 lead!!!!!
Corner Rostrevor but cleared!
Whites on goal but saved! It is a cracker this one!
Whites hold strong and Sol has another shot but the keeper cleans it up!
Rostrevor under pressure are taking the long ball option and Rob and the guys are cleaning it up everytime!
The whistle blows and that’s 1-2 time with a 2-1 lead
Bres has stated that was our best half for the year and what the boys need to do is keep the pressure up and get the ball to feet everytime!
The second half begins
Rostrevor attack but Big Dan saves (he has had a cracker)
Long clearance from Dan and the other Dan just fail to keep it in.
Free kick as Dan is brought down
Jahn in hard and wins the throw
it’s opening up a bit and Jahn gets a ball and powers it but just saved! Great shot
Corner whites and and Saf hits it! (Yes Saf) but it’s high
Free kick Rostrevor and it’s blocked by the wall
Player going down left, right and center!
27 mins gone and this it a tough contest and tempers are nearly over the top, the ref says he will call it off if everyone doesn’t behave themselves! WTF
Whites push forward and
