Our Sunday u11 b team won a classic encounter 5-4 against Rathcoole.
Park took an early lead with two poachers goals from Jamie Rossi Mielke. Rathcoole got one back but Dylan Murray struck to give us a 3-1 lead. Rathcoole then got another to leave it 3-2 at half time.
The second half began with Park laying siege to the Rathcoole goal and on another day we’d have had a couple of goals to show for efforts. Unfortunately, Rathcoole drew level with a good goal on the break and then took the lead with a long-range effort to make it 4-3 with 10 minutes to play.
Park then showed tremendous resilience and continued to attack the Rathcoole goal. They never gave up. They finally got a deserved equaliser from an unfortunate own goal following great pressure by Ryan Maher.
As the minutes ticked by, Park continued to pepper the goal and eventually got the winner with a well taken shot from Jamie Rossi Mielke to complete his hat-trick with just 90 seconds remaining in the game.
