After a night of heavy rain the committee were up early in order to get Station Road playable for this tough match against St Peters.
The game was a very fiercly contested one from both sets of players, from start to finish.
The game began with a goal inside the 1st minute for Campsie Black Watch. The ball came through from the defence and was picked up by Jordan McGuire, who superbly played in the big striker Jordan McGrotty, who we have been missing for a few weeks due to injury and he got back to his duties by firing in a fantastic shot which gave the away keeper with no chance. 
After the games explosive start it settled down and saw both sides playing some superb football which was easy on the eye, with both keepers being called into action with some good saves but there was to be no other goal in the first half.

The second half much the same as the first half had ended, with neat and tidy football being played. It was to be St Peters who were to get the next goal as their striker finished well in the 49th minute to make the score all square.
The game was a physical hard fought game and the underfoot conditions did not help as the game went on and there were players losing their feeting a lot.
However on the 66th minute it looked as if McGrotty had been awarded a penalty when the defender pulled him down inside the box, however the referre thought differently and award St Peters a free kick as he felt McGrotty had dived. 
Shortly after this incident St Peters took the lead from a well worked move.
On the 75th minute Campsie won a free kick just inside the St Peters half, the free kick was played into the box and the St Peters clearance fell to Savarese, who's shot gave the St Peters keeper little chance and put us right back into the game as the score was all square.
As the game came to into the last ten minutes it became scrappy, possibly through both set of players becoming tired and lethargic.
However, with about six minutes left the big Campsie Keeper Rhys Murray hit a tremendous ball up the park which went evaded every one and as it bounced in the oppositions box, Conor Kelly was the first to pounce onto this, but his shot was parried by the keeper who unfortunately saw Kelly pounce on the rebound and made no mistake in putting Campsie into the lead. This was to be the final goal in this encounter, which was certainly a very exciting one as both players contributed fantastically.
