Woodview and Shamrocks U11’s settled for a point each in this keenly contested mid-week match played at Muirhevnamor’s all-weather pitch.

Both sides have to be commended for their efforts in a highly entertaining game on a bitterly cold evening.

Shamrocks striker Kaylem Casey fired a shot inches wide of the Woodview post in the ninth minute and Woodview went close with a Cian Walsh shot.

The Woodview striker was denied by a fine Connor Maddy save on 14 minutes but Maddy was unable to prevent Woodview from scoring shortly after when Sean Taheny was in the right place to slam home the rebound after Maddy got a hand to another Walsh strike.

The tables were turned in the second half by Shamrocks with just nine minute gone when Ben Gorman put Callum Grant through on goal where Grant had no problem finding the back of the net with a superb low right-footed smash for the equaliser.

Back came the home side and they nearly regained the lead when a shot from Cian Walsh sailed just over and although the final 10 minutes were action packed, a draw was a fair outcome.
