Sem V St. Aiden's Cootehill in Soccer

On Wednesday, November 8th St. Macartan's College met St. Aiden's Cootehill in the soccer league on the all-weather pitch at Monaghan United's HQ at Gortakeegan. This was a fast, action packed game with plenty of goal - 11 in all with seven to Cootehill and four for the Sem. However the difference in scoreline does not do justice to the efforts of the Monaghan team who were unlucky not to have at least two more goals to their credit. Cootehill were a strong attacking team which forced Monaghan to defend in numbers which resulted in no one up front to take on clearances. The Sem boys were also too erratic with their passes as Cootehill constantly intercepted passes done in haste.
