Match Report Under 10 Kynog United V Clane

Kynog Utd 0 -2 Clane


Kynog kicked off and went straight into attack and were unlucky not to score in the opening seconds when Adam Lynch hooked a shot on to the crossbar and Gerry Melia’s follow up was well saved by the Clane keeper. Kynog continued to press while Clane looked dangerous on the break but neither team could create a clear cut chance to break the deadlock until a long ball eluded everyone but the lightning quick Michael Raheen who smashed a shot into the top corner of the Kynog net. Clane doubled their lead a few minutes later when Robert Phillips beat his man and drove a low shot across the keeper into the bottom corner. Kynog came roaring back into the match and pinned Clane back for long spells and only some fine defending and goal keeping kept the score at 2-0 at half-time.


The second half saw another even 20 minutes with both team creating few clear cut chances and when any chances did present themselves, they found two keepers in top form, with Kynog captain, Craig Harris pulling off two fine saves from both Clane goal scorers in a matter of minutes. In the end, Clane shaded an even encounter, but both teams should take great credit for a sporting and entertaining match played in front of a large and enthusiastic crowd.
