Date : 2003-11-29
Venue : H
Score : 5-2
Scorers : Swann(2), Young(2), Irwin


Match Report

By Stephen Swann

Another 2 points would've seen the 2nds leapfrog Raphoe in the league... and they didn't disappoint. For the 3rd time in 4 matches, they banged in 5 goals to extend their winning streak to 4 games (and a chance of winning the team of the month award).

Swann started the scoring by sweeping off the keeper's pads following a short corner attempt. A gift of an equaliser, however, but a dampner on spirits until Aaron Young popped up with a goal after some fantastic work down the right hand side.

2-1 at half time became 4-1 when Swann (sweeping again) and Young (taking the glory after hard work by others) once again scored. The game was put out of Raphoe's reach with a spectacular Irwin goal following some fantastic work by McKenna and Young.

Young and Murphy rattled the left and right posts, respectively as the home team's dominance came to the fore.

Raphoe, however, did sneak a second consolation goal towards the death, but it was never going to spoil a great month for the 2nd XI.

4 games, 4 wins, 17 goals, 4 conceded!

The run, however, will be severely tested with an away trip to fly-highing Portrush next week.
