Dromore U15s 2

Killyleagh U15s 1

The u15s were hoping for an easier win but eventually took all three points after a hard game against a very physical Killyleagh side.

Dromore didn’t have any flow to their play throughout the first half. The u15s wasted numerous scoring opportunities before Matty Brush challenged the keeper for a high ball on the stroke of half time. The keeper dropped the ball and Matty Brush reacted to tap it in from close range.

Killyleagh got themselves back in the game when a long range effort deceived Callum Walker and found its way into the goal.

This kicked the u15s back in to gear and to their credit the whole team raised their efforts and set about attacking in search of a second goal.

Again good chances were wasted but the build up of pressure eventually paid dividends when Michael McAvitt kept is cool to glide past two defenders and slide the ball beyond the on-rushing keeper
