Male Football

ACFL Division 3

St John Bosco                   2-5

Carryduff                           0-8

Carryduff’s run of poor form continued as they suffered a third successive defeat to St John Bosco in Newry.

Bosco registered the first two scores of the game from frees before Barry O’Neill managed to convert for Carryduff in the eighth minute.

His second opportunity went wide of the posts and Andy Moorehead’s effort in the tenth minute was parried over the crossbar by the Bosco keeper.

Bosco dominated and bossed possession for the next ten minutes but managed to kick wide on six successive occasions to leave Carryduff still very much in contention.

Jonny Hennery had his flick to the net disallowed in the 20th minute of play, referee Peter Brannigan adjudging the player to have been inside the square before the ball.

Hennery and Cian Slevin added points for Carryduff to go two ahead before Kieran Lavery saved brilliantly, deflecting a pile-driver over the crossbar to give Bosco a third point.

Barry O’Neill’s free on 28 minutes put Carryduff two to the good again as the break approached.

However, Carryduff’s luck ran out  when a Bosco 45m free fell to the Carryduff net.

Bosco met the break a point ahead – St John Bosco 1-03  Carryduff 0-05.

Bosco’s opening to the second half effectively saw them take control of the game.

Despite two wides early on their second goal came in the 38th minute and gave them a four-point cushion.

Barry O’Neill reduced the deficit to three and fortune appeared to favour Carryduff when they were awarded a penalty in the 44th minute.

However, O’Neill’s effort was stopped by the Bosco keeper.

Despite Carryduff rallying in the final quarter they were only able to register two further scores when Barry O’Neill converted two frees.

Bosco’s scores in the 39th and 40th minutes assured them of the two league points on a final score-line of St John Bosco 2-05 Carryduff 0-08.

Carryduff: Kieran Lavery, Gavin Hassin, James McKernan, Stephen Flynn, Conor McCullough, Chris O’Neill, Ruairi McKay, Jonny Henry, Tony McMahon, Barry O’Neill, Rory McCormick, Peter Lavery, Gavin Kelly, Cian Slevin, Andy Moorehead.
