Goals Secure Win for Blackhill
The old adage ‘goals win games’ was strikingly illustrated last Friday evening when Blackhill produced four goals in a seven minute blitzkrieg during the first half of our Platinum Tanks reserve football championship encounter to record a 0-12 to 4-12 victory. Despite a good start by the lads our defence was cruelly exposed during the 12th and 19th minutes when we conceded four goals as Blackhill established a commanding 4-6 to 0-7 lead at the end of the first half. At this stage, the game was over as a contest but when play resumed the lads showed a lot of character and spirit as they worked tirelessly during the second half to try and reduce the deficit but the task was an almighty uphill battle and proved a bridge to far and Blackhill emerged victorious on a score-line 0-12 to 4-12.
