Sk­er­ries bounce back against Dun­boyne

Fingal Independent - - SPORT -


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.
