Good result for Skryne over Navan O’Mahonys

By josephobrien Tue 1st Apr


Skryne 2 – 15

Navan O’Mahonys 0 – 7

Skryne secured both points against Navan O’Mahony’s in the B League Div 5 match played in Navan on Tuesday night.  This was a very strong performance by the Tara men who led with a goal from Brian Smyth after only a minute.  A second goal from Niall Morley towards the end of the first half saw them go in at the break on a very favourable score line of 2 – 6 to 0 – 5.

The Navan side upped their game considerably in the early minutes of the second half and were rewarded with two points.  However resolute defending from all the Skryne backs ensured that they weathered the storm before extending the score line again.  Indeed these two points were the only scores the town side got in this half. On 38 minutes Skryne were awarded a free, forty yards out, which Niall Morley took and put it over the bar to lift the siege.  Further points were added by Sean Cassidy and James Conroy which left the score at Skryne 2- 9 to 0 – 7.  With three quarters of the game gone Skryne introduced Paul McGoldrick and Eoin Greally who duly got in on the act and slotted over two more. Another sub Cyril Carty also added one. With Time running out Skryne added three more from Alan Carty(2) and Niall Morley.

This was a good performance from the Skryne men with excellent displays from a number of players particularly James Looby, Alan Carty and Niall Morley.  However man of the match, in this writer’s opinion, was Vinny O’Reilly who commanded the number six position for Skryne cutting out many attacks and setting up moves many of which resulted in scores.
