Football Fixtures 11th October
The P5-7 team had just one fixture last week with 2 of their opponents unable to attend due to the weather. The fixture that did take place saw a comprehensive 5-0 over defending league champions, Kilcooley. Caden captained the side and dictated much of the play from midfield throughout the game and grabbed 2 first half goals for his efforts. Further goals were added by Cooper, Zach and Caleb.
The P4-5 team had two difficult fixtures to fulfil. The first saw the team triumph in a 2-1 victory over Comber PS. First half goals from Cooper and Zach were enough to see the team through. A wonderful effort from Ethan could have added to the scoring in the 2nd half as he won the ball in midfield and beat two opponents before unleashing a powerful driven shot which came crashing back off the post with the keeper well beaten.
The next fixture was to be a tough task against league leaders Brooklands PS. An entertaining first half which saw chances at both ends looked as if it would level at the break. However, on the stroke of half-time, a quick Brooklands throw in caught the Millisle defence off guard and a powerful shot was unleashed into the corner.
The second half followed a similar pattern. Tackles were flying in as Millisle refused to let Brooklands dictate the play with chances coming and going at both ends. A super game and a super effort from every player ended in an unfortunate 1-0 defeat.
