u14's Match report v Kilcock away 6/10/2007



KILCOCK        2



Kynog United started the better of the teams with Martin Baneham prominent on the right side of midfield. He crossed on a couple of occasions but the ball just evaded Craig Gaynor and Shane Merriman. The defence were coping well with the Kilcock forwards and with Jack Kenny and Adrian Moran in midfield both passing the ball out to the wide areas for Gavin Crowe and Martin Baneham. Kynog United opened the scoring after 17 minutes when a Jack Kenny through ball found Gavin Crowe who calmly found the back of the net. Adrian Moran then drove through the Kilcock defence only to be denied by brave goalkeeping. Kilcock then started to find gaps in the Kynog defence and were unfortunate not to equalise as the half drew to a close. In the 33rd minute Kynog scored the goal of the game as Blaine Treacy rolled the ball to Darren Carty who found Martin Baneham who went round the full back and crossed for Adrian Moran to score. It was pleasing because it contained elements of the coaching they receive  that they, the children put into practice.

The second half saw the visitors increase their advantage when a fine run and cross by Ciaron Baselmans found Martin Baneham who found the bottom corner of the net.  Kynog added a fourth in the 50th minute when a Gavin Crowe corner was headed in by Stephen Dwyer. Nathan Gahan added a fifth scoring from close range at the second attempt whilst Jack Kenny managed to get his toe to the ball and beat the Kilcock goalkeeper from close range. Kilcock to their credit continued to compete and were rewarded with a goal from an excellent strike from just outside the penalty area. In the 65th minute a deliberate handball in the Kynog defence saw them reduced to 10 players and the penalty was duly despatched to complete the days scoring.

For Kynog there were many positives to take from the game as well as areas that need working on.
