FINAL PLACES SECURED – Barca 2008 Part 4

  • Thu, Apr 24, 2008 @ 10:52

Just as Zurich were no match for the Reds, the Blues easily won 13-0 with Aaron Oliver scoring 5 times securing one of the berths in the final.

It wasn't as easy for the Reds on the other pitch against Barcelona as they found themselves a goal down after a horrendous error by keeper Martin Carroll gifted the Catalans the lead. The Reds went further behind when slick passing opened their defence and it was 2-0 to Barca.

The Reds finally got their act together as halftime approached and Eoin Byrne's wonderful long range free-kick found the top left hand corner to claw one goal back.

A different Saints team took the pitch for the 2nd half but found it difficult to break through a well marshalled Barcelona defence. The watching spectators, in their words, were then treated to a wonderful “English” type goal.

A guided long punt forward from keeper Carroll was headed on by Karl Tims - Glen Carroll chested the ball down and on the turn hammered the ball home, 2-2. The Saints comfortably hung on for the point they needed to set up an all Pats final.
