Town on song

BANBRIDGE Town U9s played another two games on Saturday at the Brownstown Development Centre.

Despite a number of players missing and a number of changes in both matches, the boys coped well experiencing the ups and downs of the scorelines – winning the first game and losing out on the second.

In the first game the opposition took the lead with a good breakaway and shot into the bottom corner.

Josh Kerr had a great mazy run down the right but Town equalised when Finn Martin scored with a well taken side footed finish. Kerr then scored with a neat shot into the net after he was set up by Annett`s low cross.

Joshua Noble went close as well for Town but Tom King increased the score with a great shot into the roof of the net. Patrick McGrath made a great pass to Tom King for his second goal when he again coolly lobbed the `keeper for a great finish.

In the second game the boys went a goal behind in the early stages but levelled when Alex Innocenzi broke away and lifted the ball firmly over the `keeper with a great shot.

They stuck twice in succession but then Adam Hamilton and Tom King went close with Harry Annett also nipping one just wide of the post.

Banbridge conceded again but Patrick McGrath`s defensive work stopped further attacks.

TEAM: Kyle Bradford, Alex Innocenzi, Josh Kerr, Taylor Hill, Joshua Noble, Tom King, Harry Annett, Finn Martin, Adam Hamilton, Patrick McGrath.
