Superb exhibition of football by players

A SUPERB exhibition of football was in evidence at the Tollstone as Duleek and Drogheda Marsh Crescent played out a 10-goal thriller in the Under-12 Premier Division.

After chances at both ends it was Duleek who hit the front on two separate occasions, with a goal from Bradley Aberdeen in between.

However, a second equaliser from Tadhg Donnelly was the signal for Drogheda Marsh to take control and a quickfire brace from Aberdeen - completing his hat-trick - put the visitors 5-3 ahead and seemingly coasting.

Drogheda Marsh then missed a couple of chances to put the result beyond doubt, however, and they were made to pay when Duleek levelled with two quick-fire goals in the dying moments.
