Five star display from depleted Reserves

KILLYMOON Reserves continued their league campaign with a trip to Chimney Corner. Travelling with only a squad of eleven players, it was going to be a tough fixture for the Reserves.

Credit must go to the Corner ground staff who had the pitch in a superb condition despite the awful conditions. The Wee Moon started the game in a lively fashion as Millar and Rea worked the flanks well.

However, Corner took the lead against the run of play. A mix up from a thrown saw a quick break away and the Corner forward chipped Montgomery from thirty yards out.

The away side kept their composure and continued to play football. They levelled the game with a thunderbolt of a free kick from Redford. 1-1.

The half ended 1-1 as Killymoon squandered a number of chances prior to the break.

It took the Moon only minutes to take the lead after the half time interval. A lovely flighted corner found the head of Bogan, who powerfully headed past the keeper.

The Moon were now in complete control grabbed a third moments later. Weir rifled in from eighteen yards out. Rea soon got himself on the score sheet as he grabbed a quick fire brace. The first goal was a tap in from five yards out. His second was a superb individual goal as he rounded three players and slotted past the keeper to conclude the scoring at 5-1.

After the match manager Phil Gray said, “With only 11 players making the journey today this was a super performance from every single one of the lads.”
