Ice Cool A team clock another league win

Colemanstown ‘A’ put Dynamo Blues under pressure from the word go in this latest league encounter in Tuam on Sunday as they were very much in control all through. Albeit, our defence had little to do they rarely allowed Dynamo Blues a sniff at goal as the Tuam side created the minimum of chances. The early exchanges saw a couple of half chances from Tom Flan and Kerrill Hardy. On 20mins Alan Finn notched his 4th goal of the season and showed great juggling work with the ball at his feet, weaved his way through 4/5 players to find himself clean through on goal and with great composure hit a left footed shot past the keeper. Dynamo Blues threatened most from the superb kickouts from their keeper which landed right into the danger area. Within a few minutes of the restart Kerrill Hardy gave Colemanstown a 2 goal buffer after great work from the hard working Damo Wyne. A Kerrill Hardy cross from the left hand side was headed back across the face of goal where Kegs had continued his run and headed home from close range. By now Colemanstown were feeling cosy on the ball and enjoying their game. Tom Flan then announced his return from injury with a goal, his 12th of the season – Damo Wynne yet again the assist. A low ball went past Damo Wynne but he somehow got a deft touch on it to flick it into the air, fooling the defender as the ball fell kindly for Tom Flan and with only the keeper to beat, he doesn’t miss chances like that. Steven Walsh had an ambitious opportunity soon after when he connected well to a long cross from Kerrill Hardy but his volley was blazed over the bar. 5mins later he hit the underside of the post as the rebound came within an inch of the goal line. Conor Feeney then had the chance to add to the score line as he dummied a shot but the keeper and defender both slide to save it while the stranded Dynamo Blues custodian somehow showed great flexibility to half raise himself off the ground to get a hand to it. In the last kick of the game the Tuam side scored to put a bit of respect on the scoreline for their part when Alan Junior Finn spilled the ball in a rare effort on goal and their striker tapped in from close range. Although Colemanstown brushed aside this challenge with fair ease, there will be harder tests ahead with West Utd and Salthill Devon looming at the top of the table. Young Alan Finn showed yet again what a good left back he is in both his attacking and defending while the sustained excellence of Richie Lally and Ray Moran in central midfield was also pivotal to this win. This was Colemanstown ‘A’ near enough to their best under manager Gerry Moran – full of movement, attacking and in full control. They play Loughrea at home on Sunday at 11am.
