U16 Summer League. Skryne 2-09 Longwood Clonard 3-07

Skryne 2-09 Longwood/Clonard 3-07

U16 Football Summer League, Division 2 – Round 5

Skryne lost by a solitary point in a pulsating Under 16 Summer League match yesterday evening in Skryne. Skryne started off like a train scoring 1-02 in the first 10 mins while playing some good football. The 2 points came from the boot of Luke Thorpe while the goal came from a cool finish by Liam Gill. Indeed we should have been further ahead  in the next 5 mins but for bad finishing and good goalkeeping. Skryne then fell asleep for 10 mins giving away 2-01 one of the goals coming from a penalty putting Longwood/Clonard 2 points up after 22 mins. Skryne then came back at Longwood/Clonard and notched up further points from Craig Nolan 0-02, Sean Byrne 0-01 and another Luke Thorpe point putting Skryne 2 points up at the break 1-06 to 2-01.

The second half started off very tight and after a good move Skryne got a goal from Liam Gill again to put them in the driving seat after 5 mins of the half. This seemed to stir Longwood/Clonard up as they went on a scoring spree for the next 15 mins out scoring Skryne by 6 points to 1 point, the point coming from Craig Nolan leaving the score level at 2-07 apiece with 10 mins left. Skryne got going again and great scores from Colm Doherty and Luke Thorpe put us 2 points up with 5 mins left, but a lapse in concentration at the back cost Skryne as Longwood/Clonard got another goal leaving Skryne a point behind in the dying minutes. Skryne battled right up until the final whistle and should have leveled with a chance near the end. However, the ball went just by the wrong side of the post and Skryne were left disappointed.

Good performance by the lads.
