Skerries bounce back against Dunboyne
DUNBOYNE SKERRIES TOWN 0 2
TWO second-half goals from Brian Snowe and Bob Mckenna secured all three points for Skerries as they bounced back after defeat against Templeogue last time out.
With the wind blowing a gale in Dunboyne, the quality on offer was poor during the first 45 minutes as both sides seemed to struggle in the conditions. Neither side really created anything of note, with a couple of late corners for the home side the only notable incidents of a lacklustre first half.
The game exploded into life ten minutes after the restart, though, with Snowe giving the visiting team the lead. Eoin Dempsey picked out Mckenna in space on the left and the former Dundalk striker picked out Snowe who took a touch before brilliantly finding the bottom corner of the net.
Skerries had two glorious chances in quick succession to double their lead, but Darren Lynch missed two one-on-one’s to ensure his side stayed just a single goal ahead.
Skerries did, however, score the crucial second goal 15 minutes before the end of the game as Dempsey flicked a cross on to Mckenna who made no mistake from close range to ensure there was no way back for Dunboyne.
