Waste­ful 19s pay the price

Mid Louth Independent - - SPORT -

TWO late Bo­hemi­ans goals gave the score­line a flat­ter­ing look from their point of view as Drogheda United Un­der-19s were left to rue missed scor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties on Sun­day af­ter­noon.

In what was an evenly con­tested match over­all, the Drogs de­fence dealt very well with the vis­i­tors’ ini­tial at­tack­ing play, while goal­keeper Malachy Doyle re­turned from in­jury and was cool un­der pres­sure.

New­comer Levi Board­man looked good with Jor­dan Adeyemo up front and a foul on the lat­ter in the 36th minute earned the Drogs a free kick in a good po­si­tion. How­ever, the set piece came to noth­ing and Bohs swept up the field on the right-hand side and a bril­liant header from a great cross saw them take the lead.

At the start of the sec­ond half the Drogs strove for the equaliser and Sean Cronin made a great break up the mid­dle and saw his great shot go ag­o­nis­ingly wide.

In a great at­tack on 75 min­utes Adeyemo found him­self clear a few yards out, but he de­layed his shot too long and it was saved.

As time be­gan to run out the Drogs con­ceded two late goals and were left to re­flect on what might have been.
