Match Report Under 8 Kynog United V Clane

Kynog Utd 0 – 4 Clane


An illness ravaged Kynog squad entertained Clane on Sunday with only two U8s and the rest of the team made up of U7s and U6s. Clane started brightly and stand-in goalkeeper and captain for the day, Joshua Lee had to move smartly to collect a loose ball in the penalty box. Kynog defended resolutely with Justin Reilly and Johnny Byrne standing firm but they could not hold out until half time and Jack Wright finished smartly to put Clane in front.


The second half continued where the first half left off wih Clane pressing and Kynog trying to hit Clane on the break. Clane doubled their lead as Gareth Carey scored and straight from kick off, Clane added a third as Eoghan Maguire slotted home. Kynog kept pressing and only a fine save from the Clane keeper prevented Owen Melia from pulling one back, while a great last ditch tackle stopped a mazy Josh Harris run on the edge of the penalty box. As Kynog’s young legs tired on a heavy pitch, Clane added a fourth through Andrew Farrell to round out a comprehensive victory.
