Lurgan Town Under 13 Colts took on Oxford Sunnyside at Moira Park on Saturday in the Lisburn league. Sunnyside started brighter but Lurgan grew into the game. There was plenty of good play on both sides but there were few clear opportunities in a really close first half. Liam Campbell made a brilliant run on the left wing early on and Jack O’Brien had a shot well saved by the Sunnyside keeper. The half finished 0-0.
Sunnyside took the lead when their dangerous right winger broke away and shot high into the net. The team fought well throughout against a strong Sunnyside team but hadn’t been able to convert their chances until 2 minutes from the end. Lurgan got a free kick around 30 yards out and Adam Banks took it. He hit a phenomenal shot that any pro would have been proud of, high into the keeper’s far corner. It was an absolutely brilliant goal to earn Lurgan a well deserved draw.
Match Squad: – Jack Calvert – Jake Byers, Toby Haire, Ben Hendron, Noah Treanor – Tyler Bradley, Liam Campbell, Daniel Graham, Joey McDonald, Jake McMurray, Harry Smith – Adam Banks, Luke Carson, Jack O’Brien
