Mothers Day Misery For Monksland

Sunday 10th March 2013. CCFL
Monksland United 1-2 Willow Park.

On a blustery Mothers Day in Cushla Park, Willow Park closed the gap on Mullingar to 6 points at the top of the table, after a hard fought victory over Monksland United.

High winds made for difficult conditions and it was Willow Park that capatilised first when a direct free kick by Garry McHugh from the right wing moved in the air, evading attackers, defenders and ultimately goalkeeper Seamie McManus to give the visitors the lead.
Willow felt aggrieved not to have doubled and trebled their lead with the offside flag halting their celebrations.

In the second half, a dubious decision saw Willow awarded a penalty after Kevin Gaylard was adjudged to have fouled Colm Hyland inside the area. The front man picked himself up and dusted himself off to dispatch the spot kick, narrowly beating McManus.

The introduction of Matt Scally gave another injection of life to the Monksland attack and despite arriving to the game late, Scally justified his appearance with a powerful strike leaving the Willow keeper with no chance.

As the game entered its closing stages Monksland threw everything up front and thought they would have a chance to level things after an apparent hand ball from a Willow Park defender. With the referee waving play on, tempers flared and eventually saw center half Kevin Gaylard sent off via a second yellow card for dissent.
