U-13 Finish 2nd in the League

By tdomf_d782a

Killala 2 Conn Rangers 5

Killala U-13 entertained fellow league leaders Conn Rangers this evening needing to win the game having already played a game more than the visitors but despite their best efforts ended up on the wrong side of a 5-2 scoreline despite taking an early lead.
After a tight opening 5 min a defensive clearance by Killala’s David Lawlor fell kindly to Shane McAndrew who beat one defender and strike a brilliant opener.
Conn Rangers pressed for an equaliser and were rewarded 15 minutes into the game.
Killala were unable to make their own efforts pay dividend due to a resolute Rangers defence and even after Killala’s Nathan Browne had to leave the pitch due to injury they were unlucky to go behind against the run of play. Conn Rangers scored again 5 minutes before the break again against the run of play to take a 3-1 lead in at half time.
The 2nd half started much the same as the first but it was the visitors who scored an absolute screamer which left the Killala keeper no chance.
Killala needing to win this game threw caution to the wind and were rewarded after Shane McAndrew picked the ball up in midfield and skipped past a few defenders to finish well to get his 2nd of the game to bring Killala deservedly back into the game.
With Killala pressing and Conn Rangers defending well it was a free kick from outside the box which was well taken. Conn Rangers deservedly win this league but were given a run from their money in this game thanks in no small part by the return from injury by Killlala captain and defensive lynchpin Keith Higgins.
Shane McAndrew finishes top scorer for Killala with 9 goals but was pushed close by Kyle McLoughlin with 8 and Kieran Lally and Kevin Healy also putting a few goals in.
Tony & Brian would like to take this oppertunity to tell all our players just how proud we were of them and not just for tonight but for their efforts over the entire season …. Thank You.
