Mayobridge secured a place in the South Down U14 football final with a magnificent display at home on Monday evening against a very good Atticall side, winning on a final scoreline of 4-17 to 3-8
The Bridge played against the wind in the first half but got off to the perfect start with an early goal to settle the nerves. As the half wore on, the Sky Blues were very dominant and by the end of the half opened up a sizeable lead, going in at the break 3-9 to 0-3 ahead.
Atticall fought back in the early part of the second half and scored a couple of goals from their strong running midfielders. The Bridge lads dug in and some great score taking saw them pull away again. Atticall weren’t finished however and a goal and a couple of points kept the game alive. In the closing stages the home side upped the tempo again finishing strongly to clinch their place in the final. Well done boys.
