Defeat for unfortunate thirds

Have your say

GARVEY Thirds made the tough journey down to Havelock Park at the weekend to take on the current league leaders, Banbridge Seconds. Banbridge narrowly edged the game with a 4-3 victory in a game which was on a knife edge throughout. Both teams came out of the blocks fast and chances were being created at both ends, from the start it was obvious that we had a game on our hands. The breakthrough came from Garvey after Richard McConkey was in the right place at the right time to put the ball into the back of the net from close range. Banbridge won their first short corner of the game shortly after falling behind, and the threat of a Ross McCandless drag flick was a concern to the Garvey defence. McCandless found the top left hand corner with a drag flick that only had one possible outcome. Minutes later Banbridge won another short corner. This time the drag flick did not come, but after some scrappy play the ball ended up in the back of the net to put Banbridge 2-1 up.
