Carrick Town Senior team played City United on Sunday last in Sligo and were unlucky not to come away with a share of the spoils.

The game started with Carrick soaking up the pressure and causing problems on the break. After 25 minutes Jack De Lacy finished to net to give the town the lead however he was injured and had to be replaced.

Carrick held firm until 35 mins when City scored with a header from a corner to level the match. City took the lead after a good move to leave the half time score 2-1 to the home team.

The 2nd half started the same as the first with the town probing on the break. Finally with 20 mins left a superb ball across the pitch from Liam McTiernan found Steven ‘Giggsy’ Sirle in space and he finished smartly to draw the sides level.

The match was in the balance with both teams trying to create an opening and after a Carrick mistake City got the winner with just over 5 mins left. Carrick tried to get back level but could not and it finished 3-2 to City.

Carrick fought hard but never really got going while a few decisions didn’t go our way but if the same effort is put in for the rest of the season points will be picked up in the remaining games.

U-13: Our game v Arrow Harps was called off at the weekend.
