DFC Resreves Good Form Continues As They Brush Hanover Aside In Awful Conditions

Dollingstown reserves made the trip to Hanover in wet and wind conditions.

Both teams took time to adjust to the weather, however it was Dtown that broke the dead lock with a quick counter attack David Huston sliding a lovely ball for winger Armstrong who took one touch to bring him into the 18 yard box and finished with a powerful shot.

Hanover with the wind at there backs tried to use it to their advantage but came up against a defence lead by Harrison that were not for lossing the lead, dollingstown exploited the fact that Hanover were trying to press high up the pitch and hit twice more before half time, the  second was a drilled half volley from skipper wright and the third a delightful finish from the excellent Allen.
Hanover came out in the second half quickly as expected but when the hard working McCluskey was fouled skipper Wright dispatched the free kick for his second with great technique.
Hanover to their credit didn’t quit instead they went straight at Dtown and for the next period kept coming with waves of attacks which eventually ended with them scoring from a corner.
Dollingstown managed to get the game under control and started to pass the ball in the manner there are capable of this took all the momentum away from Hanover and the to cap off a great performance in terrible conditions, a through ball chased by McCluskey who never stopped running and on another day could have bagged a couple himself put pressure on the keeper hindering him from a clearance and up stepped Wright to complete his hat trick by chipping the keeper from 35 yards.
This was a great win for the reserves and to a man they deserve the credit for a team in very difficult conditions.
