Under 12 League
Parkville Utd 4-2 St Josephs
Every player on the pitch deserves credit for producing a game of this quality considering the tough conditions they had to play under. Joeys played with the wind in the first half and despite camping in the opponents area could only get one goal, which was always going to be difficult to defend in the circumstances. The goal came after good work down the left by Jeff Sutton and Bob Stynes the ball was crossed low into the area and Dean Farrell hit his shot low past the keeper. HT 0-1
The second half saw the Parkville team take advantage of the wind and shortly into the half a long range effort with the wind was deflected past Lee Buggle in the Joeys goal. Within a couple of minutes the situation got worse for Joeys when they gave away a free kick just outside the box and Parkville got their second. Joeys then played the best football of the game and were unlucky when a shot by Darren Murphy came back of a post and a Robert Stynes effort went narrowly wide. Parkville got two more goals as Joeys pressed forward and with a few minutes remaining Joeys scored when Adam Curran got on the end of a great cross from TJ Curran to shoot to the net. Everyone played well for Joeys and they were unlucky not to get something from the game. Darren Murphy, Jeff Sutton and TJ Curran were outstanding. Michael Lawlor, Adam Curran and Michael Foley under 11s playing at this level for the first time showed that they will be excellent at this level next year.
