WATCH: Storm Dennis provides humorous highlight in Northern Ireland

Storm Dennis


Storm Dennis got the better of gameplay this weekend through plenty of the British Isles.

Whipping winds and incessant rain cost the matches style if not the game itself -- just ask Jannik Vestergaard -- and did plenty of damage to the pitch.

Look no further than Northern Ireland, where Portadown FC met Queens University on Saturday.

The Ulster-based club cruised to a 7-1 win despite muddy, bogged goal mouths.

At least one of the goals was nearly prevented by the pitch, and striker Adam Salley though he had himself an easy one when he wheeled away in celebration after rolling a shot past the keeper.

He must’ve wondered about the bizarre crowd noise, which rose, fell, and rose again as teammate Chris Lavery reacted quickly to pounce on the ball as it died in the mud.

At least they got to play the game.
