Weekend Draw At Windmill Keeps Dollybirds In 2nd Place In Table

DFC made the trip to Armagh on Saturday and came away with a 1-1 draw which on second half performance was probably all they deserved yet it felt very much like two key points dropped in the battle for league honours as they conceded a penalty right on 90 minutes.

DFC opened very strongly with a King header on 4 minutes being cleared off the line and on 9 minutes McCordick beat two defenders but his shot was well saved at the near post by the home keeper.

McCordick then had a wonderful chance on 24 minutes when he found himself one on one with the keeper but lobbed his effort over the bar when he really should have scored.

Then on the half hour Doc went off with hamstring injury to be replaced by a Davy Gray and DFC lost their momentum after this with windmill having a couple of half chances from corner kicks.

On 54 minutes DFC got there noses in front when Keegan robbed the full back on the edge of his area to find himself one on one with the home keeper who parried his effort but luckily it rebounded off the center half and rolled into the net.

After this DFC lost their way in midfield allowing Windmill with Larkin very prominent in midfield for them to dominate.

Thompson was replaced by Harrison and McCordick by Norton as DFC went in search of a second goal but not to be and center half King made a lunging tackle in his own box in the final minute to give away a penalty which was duly converted.

DFC will be hoping that they can soon get some key players off the treatment table but this looks like being some weeks away yet as they fight out the final 9 league fixtures in search of title and are at home to title challengers Moneyslane next sat at Planters Park.
