Under 12 DDSL B1
The game ebbed and flowed throughout the first half with neither team looking dominant.
On the 20th minute, Man of the Match David Imoje produced a fantastic top corner save from a rasping shot from outside the box.
Unfortunately for the Saints the resulting corner produced the only goal of the day through a deflected shot.
Both teams pushed for more goals, with the second halve producing some wonderful football from both teams.
The Saints had multiple opportunities to draw level, Jake Cahir hitting the post, Matthew Cassidy finished inches wide of the post, Josh Huff, Ryan Penny and Zach O'Connor all having shots blocked down. At the other end Knocklyon also had opportunities to extend their lead but for the bravery of Jason Bedjo and Glenn Patton in defense and the reflexes of David Imoje to pull of a string of saves, none more so impressive than a one on one at the death of the match.
Probably the Saints best performance this season and some promising signs for the coming games.
Captain: Eabhann Doyle Smith
