Under 13 Kynog United V Athy Cup match

Kynog 0 Athy 4
Athy made this long journey to Kynog for this cup match. Athy were always favourite to come out on top of this game and within the first few minutes of kick off Athy had their first chance at goal when a through ball was played between the Kynog backline and Michael Kelly was all set to score only for the brave goal keeping of Kynog goalie Lee Dempsey.
Kelly was always going to be a thorn in the side of the Kynog defence marshalled by Daragh Lynch and Dylan Donoghue and it wasnt long before he got on the score sheet by rounding the Kynog keeper to camly slot the ball home.
Kynog were now aware of the challange that faced them and the backline had to be very alert to keep the Athy attack to a minimum.
Joe Kenny in the Kynog midfield was getting to grips with the job in hand and played some lovely passes out to the Kynog forwards of Adam Cully and Dean Bowers however the two Foley boys in the Athy defence were always aware and ready to deal with the Kynog attack.
Some dominant play be Athy saw them make it 2 nil again from the man Kelly.
Kynog made the introduction of Brian McGrath and Conor Murray at half time and the game started to even out. Athy were always hungry for more goals but so were Kynog and had two great chances through John Drennan to get back into the game, one a goal line clearance and the other a diving header just missed by the in rushing Conor Murray.
Athy went on to win this game comfortably in the end and deservatly so, but the Kynog lads can feel a great job was done today and they went toe to toe with the Premier league leaders and gave them a good game of football in a very sporting contest.
Well done to both teams. Best for Athy were the Foley boys in the backs and hatrick hero Michael Kelly while Kynog were best served by Jack Byrne David Lee & Eoin Kavanagh
