Lurgan Town Under 13 Colts took on Lisburn Ladies at Barbour Playing Fields, Lisburn on Monday 16th April 2018 in an U13 League Three match. The first half had very few clear cut chances. Ben Hendron went close from a Liam Campbell corner with a hooked shot but it was cleared off the line and Luke Carson went close but shot past the post. It was a reasonably even first half but just before half time Luke made no mistake when he ran in again on goal and slotted past the keeper to make it 1-0.
In the second half, Adam Banks went close early on but the Lisburn keeper made a good save. Caolan Ritchie came on at half time and made a series of dangerous runs throughout the second half. After good work by Liam Campbell, Caolan ran onto the ball and, though the goalkeeper saved his shot, Luke Carson grabbed his and Lurgan’s second with the rebound from close range. Liam Campbell was making some dangerous runs and crosses. Caolan Rogchue had a shot cleared off the line as the ball just wouldn’t run for him but he was the star player of the second half. The three man defence of Jake Byers, Toby Haire and Ben Hendron were very solid yet again and, although it wasn’t a vintage performance by Lurgan, it was another vital 3 points in the race for the top of the league.
Match Squad: – Jack Brannigan, James Wright – Jake Byers, Toby Haire, Ben Hendron – Liam Campbell, Daniel Graham, Lewis McIvor, Jake McMurray, Jack O’Brien – Adam Banks, Luke Carson, Caolan Ritchie
