Skryne take both points in Division five B League

By josephobrien Thu 8th May


Skryne have maintained their unbeaten run in the B league Div 5 in a win over Ballivor on Tuesday evening.  Good performances form veterans Felim O’Rourke and Brian Smyth which saw them score a total of 1 – 9 between them was the key to this win.  Ballivor went in at the break ahead by two points on a score line of seven points to five.  Indeed they should have had a bigger advantage but found difficulty in managing the diagonal direction of a stiff breeze.

Second half scores tended to cancel themselves out.  Ballivor were playing well early in this half but sterling performances from the Skryne backs particularly Harrington and O’ Leary was keeping them at bay.  Vinny Reilly moved to centre-field for the Tara men and his high fielding was the main reason Skryne got on top.   With forty minutes gone Brian Smyth got on the end of a ball that was shot across the goals, and punched it to the back of the net.  This put Skryne ahead for the first time in the game on a score line of 1 – 9 to 0 – 10.  Skryne’s advantage was further increased when Niall Morley sent over after a fine solo effort.  This was cancelled out by one for Ballivor two minutes later.  Felim O Rourke sent over two more for the home side but with time running out, Ballivor brought the difference down to a single point when they scored a goal of their own.  The visitors did have chances to get a draw or even win this game, however, with time up O’Rourke put over another to see Skryne run out winners by two points.  This was a battling performance from Skryne which sees them still top the table in this Division.  On the night everyone worked hard for the team which saw them finish on a score line of 1 – 13 to 1 – 11.
