24/04/2018 Y11 SOCCER: LORETO COLLEGE 2-3 ST PATRICK’S COLLEGE DUNGIVEN

Loreto bowed out of the race for the Coleraine and District league title after losing to a very strong St Patrick’s College Dungiven team.  The game ebbed and flowed throughout the first period until Nicolas Moore put Aaron Wallace through with a precise through ball which Aaron slotted into the bottom corner of the Loreto goal.  Dungiven replied with a goal almost instantaneously despite the best efforts of the centre backs Charlie McKnight and Thomas Mailey.  Nevertheless, Loreto kept pressing for the lead.  Striker Christopher McNally ran through onto an Alex Mailey pass and lobbed the keeper only for the ball to ricochet off the crossbar.  Thankfully, Aaron Wallace was at hand to head the rebound home to take Loreto in at half time with a one goal lead.  In the second half Dungiven set out to score an equaliser immediately.  They applied huge pressure and found the Loreto goal twice inside a few minutes after the restart.  Loreto could have easily have given up but they fought on.  However, time was not on their side and a well drilled Dungiven team saw out the remainder of the game. 

The Loreto players would like to thank Dungiven for the game and best wishes for the rest of the competition.
