Saintfield Utd

Saintfield were featuring in their first Walter Moore semi-final under the lights at Seaview playing a team 2 divisions above them in the league so were underdogs. However having already beaten 2 teams for higher divisions in previous rounds they were confident of putting up a decent performance. King and Sherrard were both still missing with flu and Morrow was only fit enough to take a spot on the bench.

The Saints started well and were the better team in the first half. Sheeran and Boylan were causing problems up front with their pace and were getting good support from wide players B Stoneman and 16 year old Ethan Barr who was not in the least overawed by the occasion.

Saintfield took the lead after 20 minutes. There was a good build up through Sofley Robinson and Sheeran until the ball reached B Stoneman on the right side of the penalty area. He shot low and hard and the ball took a deflection as it beat the keeper on his left hand side. The Saints had a chance to increase the lead when awarded a free kick on the edge of the penalty box. Sofley played it short to Sheeran whose shot was put over the bar by the keeper. Hey went close again when Stonemanís volley was well saved.

Saintfield did increase their lead 10 minutes before the interval. Sofley played Boylan free down the left and his superb cross was lifted over the keeper by an exquisite chip from Sheeran.

The second half saw Rosario on top with lots of possession. However the Saintfield back four of Ross, Bowman, Martin and M Stoneman were solid and Harper in goals was safe in his handling. Rosario had a great chance to get on the scoresheet when awarded a penalty. However Harper saved superbly with his feet.

Rosario continued to press and pulled a goal back with 25 minutes left when the midfielder finished low to Harperís left hand. Rosario continued to press but with substitutes J Sofley and Morrow introduced the Saints held on to progress to the final. This was a good team performance where the work rate was the outstanding feature.



Goal Scorer: Paul Sheeran (1), OG (1)
