Castle Villa were the visiting team to Kynog Park on a beautiful sunny Saturday morning. Both teams started brightly with early chances at both ends. Villa opened the scoring in the 14th minute with a superb free kick 30 yards out, Up stepped Nathan Doyle who slotted the ball into the top of the home teams net. Kynog responded within minutes when Evan Treacy was on hand to narrowly head the ball over the crossbar. The other end saw Kevin O'Brien making some crucial interceptions in the Kynog defence. Shane Morrison minutes later  had his effort saved by Mark Ormsby in the Villa goal. The same player continued to pile the pressure on the Villa defence and after some fine linking up between Morrison and David Hayes resulted in Kynog equalising just before half time. The second half resumed with play going from end to end. Joey Jermaine had to be extra alert in the Castle Villa defence after some positional changes the home team now had the striking force of Kevin Sheridan and Brian McGrath up front. Kynog added to their scoring in the 40th minute when a Ciaran McMahon shot on goals was cleared but found Evan Treacy whose bicycle kick put his team in front. Shane Morrisons many attempts didn't go unrewarded as he was on hand to add to the home teams scoring in the 50th minute. The final score of the day resulted from a great long range kick out from Ross Maher  picked out Brian McGrath who sealed the victory for the home team. Credit must go to the both teams who played the game in a great spirit .
