Under 14 Match Report Kynog United V Arlington AFC

Kynog United made the journey to Arlington last Saturday to take on the local team and gave an all round excellent performance. Their opponents are from a higher division but this was not obvious as the match unfolded with both defences on top and a midfield battle ensuing with Adrian Moran and Eamon Cox outstanding. In attack little was created in terms of chances although Conor Staines and Shane Merriman looked lively. As the half came to a close Jack Kenny and Cian Gilligan continued to deal with the Arlington attack restricting them to long range shots.
The opening minutes of the second half saw Arlington winning more possession and applying more pressure resulting in a number of corners being conceded. In the 50th minute Arlington scored from close range following a corner kick. Kynog responded with a Gavin Crowe shot being blocked and a Jack Kenny shot from long range being tipped over the bar by the keeper. Kynog were unable to find a way past the well organised Arlington defence. Every Kynog player can be proud of their performance once again as they continue to improve.
