U15 Prem League.
Douglas Hall 4 Lakewood Athletic 4
What a cracker of an opening game of the season,and what guts and attitude from the visitors against a team who have their sights set on league honours this year.
A bit unfortunate to be 2-0 down at the break after a competitive first half, Lakewood fell further behind early in the second half before a brilliant next 20mins brought them thundering into the game. New signing and man of the match Eoghan Osullivan played Jack Mellerick in and he neatly tucked it away for 3-1. Morgan Foley then drew a foul some 25yards out and O’Sullivan drove into the top corner for 3-2. 10mins to go and Osullivan twisted this way and that before firing home a sublime equaliser inside the box! Elation on the Lakewood line was shattered in the final minute as the Hall forced in a 4th from close range to send their supporters wild. But it was not over. Awarded a free kick deep in stoppage time just inside the Douglas Hall half O’Sullivan stepped up and powered his kick over the outstretched arms of the home keeper for 4-4 and a fantastic away point for a never say die Lakewood.
