The pressure was released when Joseph Gallagher scored twice in 5 minutes around the hour mark. Real pressed on allowing Woodpeckers to attack regularly on the break, Jackson Lucken added and eighth goal and Joseph Gallagher should have completed his hat-trick but blazed over from 15 yards out. Conor Murphy completed the scoring late in the game, following good work from Jack Sullivan.Final Score 2-9
A great team performance from Woodpeckers in front of their Shirts Sponsors and hopefully a benchmark has been set for the remainder of the season.Man of the Match – Woodpeckers Manager Jason Lang didn’t want to pick a Man of the Match as it was such a good team performance but it was given to Joseph Gallagher when he was nominated by the rest of the boys. Two great goals from Joseph, I believe his first brace in 8 seasons for Woodpeckers.
Here at Rap Interiors we’re proud to sponsor such an amazing team and were delighted to be there to see the whole team play their hearts out.
