Killough

This cup match looked a mismatch on paper. Killough unbeaten and flying high in the premier division and Saintfield thirds struggling at the wrong end of division one.

However it turned out to be closer than anticipated.

The Saints had their usual plethora of teenagers with 6 in the squad including 4 16 year olds. More unusually they had 2 father and son combinations in the starting 11 with Lee young and his son Aaron joining Philip King and his son Matthew. The home side started cautiously in an effort to stay in the game as long as possible. Killough had plenty of the ball and forced several corner kicks. These were dealt with well although the visitors had a distinct height advantage. The visitors took the lead with 25 minutes gone when a through ball was eased past keeper Young. It looked like the hosts had escaped when the ball hit the post but unfortunately it then went over the line.

To their credit the young Saints reacted well and equalised 10 minutes later. Matthew Boyle received the ball 30 yards from goal with 2 defenders around him but he managed to dribble pats both and tucked the ball past the keeper for a superb solo goal.

In the second half the Saints started to tire and Killough got the winner after an hour. It was extremely unlucky as a cross was deflected off Aaron Young and past his Dad in goals.

Young made several saves to keep his side in touch. Substitutes Bishop and Jack Kelly were introduced and the Saints had a real go for an equaliser. McGuire had a chance from a King free kick and had a headed opportunity in the last minute from a Bookless cross. Unfortunately he couldn’t convert and the premier division side went through in what was a good cup tie played in great spirit.

The Saints all put in a great effort with both Youngs on top form.
