Ferrybank 2; Villa 2

Having lost their opening game away to Tramore, Ferrybank really came good at their home ground in midweek when they easily accounted for a disappointing Villa team at the Village Grounds and the only surprising aspect of the game was the final score.
Had they taken all of the chances that came their way, Wayne Russell’s team could have won by a much bigger margin. Brian Mallon opened the scoring after 24 minutes when he rose high to head home a corner kick taken by Mark Dalton.
Ferrybank missed a host of opportunities before Cormac O’Driscoll eventually scored with ten minutes remaining after an effort by Brian Mallon had been cleared
