Cookstown High School 1st XI 6 – 1 Royal & Prior 1st XI
This was the team’s second match in the McCullough Group stage and ran out comfortable winners against a poor Raphoe side. Tony Johnston opened the scoring for a second game running with a sweetly struck reverse after Cookstown had had some nice passing moves in the opening stages. Rollins made it 2 shortly after with a carbon-copy of the opener before Donaldson grabbed his first goal of the season after Ferguson’s great ball into the D.
Raphoe pulled one back just before half time with a well executed short corner but Cookstown started the second half strongly and it wasn’t long until they extended their lead. Josh Anderson and Ross Johnston got their first goals for the 1st XI to make it 5-1 before Millar rounded off the game with a well taken goal.
Paul Johnston had a very solid game for Cookstown at right back as he worked very hard throughout and played the simple pass consistently. The boys would like to thank Mr. Haycock for coaching and Mr. Cuddy for umpiring.
Squad: Gillis, Rollins, Crooks, Ferguson, P Johnston, T Johnston, I Johnston, Millar, J Anderson, T Sloan, Donaldson, R Johnston.
