Wood Out of the Traps Quickly

Beechwood 3 Parkvale 2

Our 15s never recovered after Beechwood were 2 nil up after 5 minutes.Beechwood won a free kick in the 2nd minute, and the shot was fired low and the ball made its way across the line after a few deflections .Beechwood continued to press and got their second in the fifth minute after a quick one-two and the ball was clipped over the advancing Mulhern.

Our 15s eventually settled and on the 30th minute, cut the deficit to one, with an outstanding free kick from Charlie McGowan. The deficit soon became 2 again, as Beechwood got a 3rd on the stroke of Half Time.

Beechwood began the 2nd half brighter, if it wasn’t for Jack Mulhern, who made 3 fine saves it would have been Game Set Match on the hour. Against the run of play with 15mins left on the clock Gerald O’Koeguale scored from long distance. The 15s pressed on and nearly stole a point from another good free kick from McGowan,that hit the bar.


There are no easy games in SDFL 15 Premier league, but on another day if we hadn’t given Beechwood a 2 goal early lead? Who knows?
