Another B League defeat for Skryne

Gaeil Colmcille 2-08, Skryne 1-08

B League Division 1, Round 7

Skryne travelled to Kells for this B League Division 1 match once again short a number of regulars due to injury etc and came away empty handed. Further injuries to Mark Harrington and Sean Cassidy made for a frustrating night as the Club were forced to play 4 games in 8 days for the second time this year. So much for Amateur player welfare.

Skryne began the match very well and had the first point on the board – an excellent score from Jason Fox. Gaeil Colmcille replied with a goal from their first attack which went in off the underside of the crossbar. It was a low scoring first half probably due to the very difficult conditions as it lashed rain from the fifth minute of the game right to the finish. The Gaels may have been favoured by the dreadful condition as they were the bigger and more physical team and led by 1-02 to 0-02 at the break.


There were a few over robust tackles flying in at different times during the match and Referee Gerry McGivney was busy with yellow cards to both teams and one red to a Kells player.

Another early goal in the second half for the Gaels left Skryne with a difficult task to get back into the match but to their credit the battled bravely and got to within 2 points of the winners with five minutes to go. Darren Fox’s superbly taken goal after some great teamwork out the field brought the Blues within one score of the lead at that point. Then the Kells men added two more points of their own to go four clear again and Felim O’Rourkes last minute forty five was touched over by the keeper to leave the final score – Gaeil Colmcille 2-08 Skryne 1-08.
