Vale Wanderers AFC 2 - 0 Slaney Rovers AFC

A very tight affair at lunchtime in a blustery and cold Superbowl today with the home side hoping to build on their first league point of the season v Hanover before the Christmas break and Slaney out for revenge for a close 0-1 loss in the Grading Competition at the start of the season.

The first half was very close and while it was end to end, not too many clear chances were created with Defences and Keepers coming out on top for most of the opening 30 mins.

With 20 mins gone, Vale started to get more of a foothold in the game and won three corners in quick succession.

Even with the increased pressure from the home side, Ryan Kearney still had to be off his line quickly to deal with two through balls from Slaney.

Vale attacked from one of these clearances, winning a corner.

A good delivery from Matthew Jordan was touched home by Bill Hayden to give Vale a 1-0 lead at half-time.

The second half saw Vale take more control of the game and in the 42nd minute, Jordan again attacked down the wing, cut inside and his shot-cross found the back of the net to double Vale's lead.

7 minutes later Vale were awarded a penalty and Shaun Sibanda stepped up to slot the ball home, however the referee had not blown the whistle and ordered a retake, which Sibanda put to the opposite side but the Slaney keeper second guessed him and saved.

Sean Foley had a goal bound effort cleared off the line but Slaney had their own chances still and Brendan Byrne produced an excellent goal-denying tackle for Vale to keep the away team scoreless.

A deserved 2-0 win - their first of the season in Div1 - for Vale U12s under the guidance of match-day captain Ryan Cummins and Bill Hayden, Bob Phelan & Matthew Jordan who put in excellent performances.

Best three for Slaney were Kallen McCabe, Ella Corcoran & Peter Lawlor.
