By josephobrien Sat 1st Jun


Skryne GFC posted two wins in the B League on Monday and Tuesday evenings.

On Monday it was the Div. 1 side who took on Senchalstown in Skryne and had a fairly comfortable win over their great rivals on a scoreline of 2 – 17 to 0 – 11.  The goals came through Conor Keogh on 11 minutes and Brian Davis who hit the target with 4 minutes left to play.  In between Skryne scored some great points through Brian Smith, David and Donie Ryan, John Morley,  Cian Byrne ,Adam O’ Sullivan, Niall Burke, Brian Davis and Conor Keogh.  After the first goal this was a match which was never much in doubt and saw Skryne move to an advantage of 1 – 8 to 0 – 5 by half time. Senchalstown did manage to tag on a few early points in the second half but these were readily countered by the Skryne men who went on to a fairly convincing win.

Final score Skryne 2 – 17, Senchalstown 0 – 17

On Tuesday it was the turn of Skryne Div 5 team in the B League away to Clonard.  This was a much closer affair for about 30 minutes.  The match was barely a minute old when Brian Smith raced through to shoot to the back of the net for the opening score and while Clonard fought back well they could never overcome the concession of that opening goal.  Skryne on the other hand kept knocking over points from Sean Cassidy, Brian Smith, Johnny Quinn and Conor Keogh.  The score at the half time break was Skryne 1 – 4, Clonard 0 – 5.  When the second half resumed it was Brian Smith who again opened the account with a fine point to restore the goal lead. Clonard countered with two points but further points from Smith, Cassidy, O’Rourke and Keogh saw Skryne run out winners on a score line of 1 – 11 to 0 – 8.

Skryne: A Dolye, D. O’Brien, D. Harrington,  S. Cunningham, S. McEnroy, Des McAvinney, C. O’Rourke (1), C. Whelan, J. Quinn (1), S. Cassidy(2), B. Smith (1 – 3), C. Keogh(3), David Byrne, M O’Brien.
