Tattersley brace seals important comeback

IC dig deep to clinch vital league victory
Irish Centre clinched a vital league win a week before their cup semi-final fixture against Linthwaite.  The Huddlers, with the full 18 man squad presnet went into this league match against Hepworth needing to secure all three points.
But it was Hepworth that started the brighter and Irish Centre found themselves on the back foot.  Hepworth arguably deserved to take the lead on 25 minutes, when Greg Davies' free-kick caught out IC goalie Shanahan who had another sound game in goals commanding his area.  The Huddlers did force forward coming close from a Quinn free-kick and through captain Chris Keady and leading goalscorer Adam Bell.  But they could not find the breakthrough in a dismal first half display by a frustrated team.
Half time saw Helliwell stay faithful with the original eleven and this reeped rewards as the home side made a big improvement and attacked with purpose.  Tattersley, who was quiet in the first half, played a major role in the second equalising with a free kick that the Hepworth keeper, who was excellent throughout, should have dealt with. Tattersley sealed a vital win with a cracking strike from 20 yards in the 78th minute before sparking the Huddlers to up a gear and after Bell had broke through Clarke slooted home from close range to make it 3 - 1. 
Chris Helliwell was delighted with the win as he leads the Huddersfeidl Representative side into a game with the West Riding this Thursday the 7th of March at Woodlesford.
