Lurgan Town Under 13 Colts took on Banbridge Town at Lurgan Town Arena on Wednesday 28th March in an U13 League Three match. 10 minutes into the game, Caolan Ritchie put Luke Carson through and Luke was unlucky not to make it 1-0 when his shot hit the post. Lurgan did take the lead when, from a scrappy corner, Caolan Ritchie put the ball home from close range. Banbridge equalised before half time when Lurgan didn’t clear the ball and the goalkeeper had no chance. In the second half there were no clear chances early on. Lurgan then had a couple of very good chances through on goal but weren’t able to beat the keeper.
It was a tight game between these two teams at the top of the league. The team battled throughout to earn their draw and the defence once again did very well to keep Banbridge to very few clear chances.
Match Squad: – James Wright – Jake Byers, Toby Haire, Ben Hendron, Noah Treanor – Liam Campbell, Daniel Graham, Jake McMurray, Jack O’Brien, Harry Smith – Adam Banks, Luke Carson, Lewis McIvor, Caolan Ritchie
