Ducks Flying again

Match report from Declan Gill

Epic 3-3 Draw in Newtown Park


The legend of Lisnagry U12 Mighty Ducks continues to grow as they opened their season with a typically battling display against a top class,typically well coached Aisling team.


The Ducks went 1 up with a neat finish from Oslakovich before going 3-1 down just after halftime against the overall run of play.


Using the full squad at all times and clever player & position rotation by Offensive Coordinator Casey, the opposition were bamboozled by the constant shuffling and ducks seamlessly changing positions and markers.


The tactics certainly worked as The Ducks soon retrieved a goal back after a very clever toepoked finish from Hickey setting it up for a roller coaster last 10 minutes as both sides pressed for goals.


With every Lisnagry player in the penalty area bar our superb goalkeeper Fogarty ,a superb in swinging corner from Hickey was met by a soaring leap & textbook bullet header into the top corner by Hogan before the excellent referee blew the final whistle.


Notes *The Famous Mighty Duck himself is currently at Dinny Moloney’s Taxidermist in Killenaule undergoing a makeover for the 20/21 season.He is available for children’s parties ,communions ,Christenings ,bar mitzvah’s,Ramadan etc
