U16s Newtown 1-5 Johnstown
Johnstown were on the road again for a third week running and came away with all 3 points.
The conditions were ideal and the away side made the most of a very good Newtown pitch.
David O’Gorman got the away sides first of the day with 15 mins on the clock. Noel Donnelly collected a long pass from Gaffney and he played in O’Gorman who made no mistake with a shot from just inside the box. Johnstown made it 2-0 when Joshua cut out a Newtown attack and he found O’Gorman who crossed for Donnelly to convert.
Ciaran McCann made it 3-0 shortly with a good finish from inside the the box. The last goal of the half came at the boot of Reaney. The impressive Adam O’Connor found Reaney with a defence splitting pass, the latter made no mistake with a good run into the box and finished past the keeper.
Johnstown took the foot off the gas in the 2nd half. Although there were chances missed to increase the lead our normal passing game wasn’t there. The home side had a few chances themselves and Paddy Gaffney was called upon and saved well.
The away side made it 5-0 when Conor Davies converted a penalty after O’Connor was tripped in the box. Newtown got a consolation goal late on with a good finish from the Newtown striker.
This was a good performance with some stand out performers. Best for Johnstown O’Connor, O’Gorman, Barry, Gaffney and MOTM Kevin Joshua
