Match Report Under 10 Kynog United V Carragh

Kynog Utd 0-5 Caragh Celtic


Having met last week, Kynog went into this game against Caragh looking for a better result. The match started out quite evenly with the ball spending most of the time in midfield as both teams struggled to create chances. Both teams created a number of half chances but both defences reacted quickly to any loose ball preventing either keeper from having to make a save until a through ball found Shaun Gallagher who rounded the Kynog keeper and slotted past the covering Joey Toman. Kynog drove on looking for an equaliser but half chances for both Conor Carew and Gerry Melia were collected by the Caragh keeper. The game continued to remain fairly even, but Caragh extended their lead just before half-time when a powerful shot was deflected into the net by an unfortunate Kynog head, but were denied a third by an excellent reaction save by Kynog keeper, Craig Harris.


The second half followed a similar pattern to the first, and although Caragh were beginning to dominate territory, Kynog always looked dangerous on the break. Caragh added two quick goals, first when a Daragh Swift shot found the bottom corner, then from a Jason Earley header which was deflected past the Kynog keeper by an unlucky Kynog shoulder. Kynog kept pushing for a consolation goal, with midfielders, Adam Toman and Gerry Melia typifying their desire, covering every blade of grass in the second half. It wasn’t to be for Kynog, and Caragh added a late fifth from the penalty spot, Brian Nolan converting. The final score may not reflect the parity of the contest, but both teams should take great credit for the endeavour and skilled football on display.
