Under 17 Kynog United V Kill Celtic

A match that was settled by a solitary Jason Ryan strike midway through the first half saw the home team secure their first league win this season. The match began with the midfield area being keenly contested with Adrian Moran prominent. Kill had Alex Curran excelling in the visitors defence. Donal McGrath shot narrowly wide for Kynog while a Gavin Crowe effort just cleared the crossbar. As the match settled down a move down the Kynog right saw Shane Merriman finding Jason Ryan whose strike found the top corner beyond Eddie McSweeney. The visitors were struggling to create opportunities and much credit for that is the way the Kynog defence played on the day with David Hayes at full back putting in a terrific performance. The second half saw Dale Percival strike the crossbar in the 50th minute following a cross from the right. The home team were now beginning to move the ball quickly and create opportunities but a mixture of poor finishing and good goalkeeping by Eddie McSweeney who denied both Martin Baneham and Evan Treacy from increasing the lead. Kill were always dangerous on the break and from set pieces. From a corner Stephen Skelton headed narrowly over. Nicholas Kenny from Kill was having a positive influence on the game from his left full back position. However Kynog finished strongly to record a thoroughly deserved victory.
