The Drogs Under 15s were up against a superior side in visitors Bohemians on Sunday at United Park where most of the match was played in a steady downpour. As early as the first minute Bohs hit the post and they took the lead on nine minutes. The Drogs were finding it hard to match the superior play of the visitors and just could not get a foothold in midfield and were unlucky on 28 minutes to have a penalty awarded against the, following an innocuous tackle and the visitors made it 2-0.
In the second half the Drogs were more disciplined in their play at the back. They kept the visiting attack at bay with Pavlov and his full backs McDonagh and Murphy in excellent form and keeper Ignat dealt very capably with dangerous crosses and shots. With little possession in the final third, the Drogs attack still contrived to create two really good chances in the 71st and 75th minutes, but it was not to be their day, but they can take heart from a good overall display and count themselves unlucky not to have scored at least a goal in the second half.
