U11 Shield Round 1

Prosperous united 0 kynog United 3

On a wet, cold and damp setting in Prosperous both teams are to be commended on an excellent game of football. Kynog playing with the wind & hill were put under early pressure from Wesley Heavey of prosperous and only safe handling from Lee Dempsey in the Kynog goal kept him out. Kynog were now beginning to take control and a move saw a great shot from Gary Harnett set up by Colm Staines just flashed wide. A great pass through to Joseph Kenny from Eoin Kelly was well saved by the prosperous goalie but the pressure finally paid off when Conor Donoghue ran from midfield and left the prosperous defence for dead and clinically finished to put Kynog ahead. Prosperous finished the half strongly and Tim Barnett was fouled on the edge of the box and the free was cleared off the line by the Kynog rock Dylan Donoghue. Half time saw the rain come down and prosperous driven on by Lorcan Behan were kept out by solid defending from Brian Elliott and Darragh lynch.
Kynog made a break and and Conor Murray expertly chipped the keeper to put Kynog two ahead. Both teams were playing a great passing game and only a goal line clearance kept prosperous scoreless. With ten minutes to go kynog made it safe when Adam lynch scored from the   right wing after a lovely move involving Conor donoghue & Joseph Kenny . This made the game safe and while Adam Cully & Luke Herbert went close with a few runs for Kynog no more scores came.
The large crowd certainty got value for money given the weather and fair play to the young players for a very fair & sporting game.
