St Andrew's Win Rock Cup

St Andrew's have won the Rock Cup for the second time in three years with a victory over St Joseph's at Elliot Park. The match, which took place on Friday 10thJune, was a hard fought affair with St Andrew's twice coming from behind. There was very little between the teams and St Joseph's played some magnificent football but St Andrew's showed great character and determination. Congratulations to Mr McMahon and the boys for a gutsy performance played in great spirit! Below is a match report written by team captain Jamie McCord and vice captain Jamie Downie.


St Andrew's Primary were playing in the Rock Cup final against St Joseph's.  St Andrew's scored first with a drilled ball across the box to Aiden McDougall who tapped in to go 1-0 up.  Minutes after, St Joseph's equalised with a header into an open net.  St Andrew's were being dominated but then it was half-time.  A minute after half-time St Joseph's went 2-1 up with poor defending from St Andrew's.  Five to ten minutes later Jamie McCord equalised with a half volley.  About two minutes later St Joseph's went 3-2 up from a deflected goal.  Right after the starting whistle St Andrew's went on the attack and won a free kick.  Out of nowhere Jamie Moran put it in the top corner.  With about 7 to 8 minutes left Jamie Moran punted the ball up to Jamie McCord who then volleyed into the top corner to win the cup.  St Andrew's lifted the cup after an amazing game.
