Comeback win for Galway Bohs over B team

On their first competitive outing of the season at home yesterday Colemanstown B were the authors of their own downfall to an extent as they relinquished a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to an Enda Curran trained Bohs side. The Galway FC striker has certainly made big strides with these lads since this time last year. Colemanstown, however were quickest out of the blocks and had the brighter of the opening exchanges. Within 10mins Niall Skehill found himself one-on-one with the keeper but hit a low drive straight at the keeper. Good man Niall! 10mins later he had a go at repeating his party trick, beat the defence and in a similar effort to his first, the Bohs custodian advanced off his line to close him down but yet zippy Skehill got his strike in which was saved initially but he made no mistake with the rebound as he tapped into an empty net. In fairness Colemanstown had most of the first half possession until 10mins before the break as the city side began to ease into the game. Half time came just at the right time for our boys. After the restart, Shane Bailey had our first effort with a long range drive but the keeper stood his ground. Shortly afterwards Sean Walsh’s half volley was just wide of the post while Niall Skehill’s long range effort rattled the crossbar. Colemanstown were defending well at this stage as David ‘Mario’ Killarney excelled at centre back assisted by Ross Sullivan with Adrian Burke & Padraig Quirke in the corners. Sean Walsh scored our second with a great individual effort, with his back to goal he turned to beat his man and finished into the bottom left corner. Rob Lally was instrumental in the build-up and had a great game as he got on the ball time and time again. 2-0 up with 65 mins gone but from there to the end it was all Bohs as the visitors took a firm grip of the game. They struck three times with all goals materialising from goalmouth scrambles. Their first found the net after Tom Broderick initialled saved. Moments later the equaliser was a similar effort as Tom Broderick got a hand to it but from the ensuing scramble the ball found the net. The winner came for Bohs as the ball waltzed about in the box and our defence failed to clear as a Bohs header eventually beat Tom Broderick between the Colemanstown posts. Colemanstown were best served by Mario Killarney, while Joe Finnerty showed little effects of his recent South American trip and Rob Lally was exceptional up front. Next up for the B team is Kinvara at home on Sept 12th while this weeks mid week game vs Craughwell has been rescheduled for Oct 3rd.
