Carryduff Colts (B)

t was a difficult first half for the U15s, with Carryduff firmly on the front foot and threatening in attack, particularly on the right wing. The Saints had goalkeeper Conor Darragh to thank for keeping the scores level, but he had no chance with Colt's opening goal, which came from a devastating counter attack and excellent finish. The Saints went close to equalising through Robbie Willis and Thomas Compton, but in truth they struggled to test the opposition defence. Struggling to compete physically, Saintfield continued to pass the ball in the hope of getting back into the game, but instead conceded another goal which appeared to seal the match for the Colts. However, substitute Rory Wilson was putting in some dangerous crosses from the left, and his excellent delivery provided a route back into the game. First, his cross was cleared to Isaac Gibson, who lashed the bouncing ball into the roof of the net to reduce the arrears. Then, Scott McCormick met Wilson's corner with a bullet header at the near post to equalise. The momentum in the game had shifted in the Saints favour, in no small part due to the energy of attacking players Michael Kavanagh, Adam Keery, Rory Lennon and Daniel McKibben. When Keery set Lennon free on the left, and he beat his man to get the byeline to cross the ball. Although the cross was cleared, Lennon reacted quickest to keep the loose ball alive and, from a tight angle, he fired the ball across the keeper into the top corner. With only minutes remaining, and holding the lead for the first time, Saintfield continued to attack, with Lennon jinking his way into the box, only to be fouled by the defender. Isaac Gibson stepped up to calmly side foot the ball past the keeper to seal the win.

It was an entertaining game with both teams playing well, and Carryduff could count themselves very unlucky not to out of sight after being on top for most of the first half. However, the Saints prevailed through hard work and good finishing. Isaac Gibson was voted player of the match for his decisive goals, with Rory Lennon putting in an typically energetic performance and captain Scott McCormick proving influential in midfield. Once again, it was pleased to see so many of the younger players have such a positive influence on the game.




Goal Scorers: Isaac Gibson (2), Scott McCormick (1), Rory Lennon (1)
