Win for Skryne over St Brigids

By josephobrien Wed 25th Jun


Skryne 5 – 11

St. Brigids 1 – 11

Division 5 of the B League saw Skryne take both points against St Brigids on Tuesday evening.  Playing at home under very favourable weather conditions the Tara men had a very comfortable win over the Ballincree side, thanks to their five goal tally.  St Brigids were first to trouble the scoreboard minder and were three points to the good before Felim O’Rourke from a 45 got Skryne of the mark.  O’Rourke pulled another one back from another long range free  before Alan Carty levelled matters with sixteen minutes on the clock.  Jamie Jordan then got the first of Skryne’s goals after good work by Brian Smyth.  Sean Cassidy then scored a goal to rival any that might be scored this year after the ball was laid on by Jordan.  Two more points from Jordan and one from Brian Smyth left the half time score at Skryne 2-7, St Brigids 0 – 5.

Three more points from Cassidy, Carty and Smyth were countered by points for St. Brigids before Jordan got his second goal with forty two minutes gone.  However, the Brigids didn’t give up the chase just yet and were rewarded when the ball was bundled over the Skryne line for a goal to leave the score at Skryne 3 – 10, Brigids 1 – 11.  This score was followed up with a further point but when Cyril Carty sent in a long speculative shot which went straight to the back of the net there was no way back.  Felim O’Rourke finished off the scoring with a further goal and a point to leave the full time score at Skryne 5 – 11 St Brigids 1 -11.
