Nurney Villa AFC 4 - 3 St Patrick's Boys AFC

A titanic battle in wild conditions in Nurney saw the home side prevail in a 4 3 thriller thanks to a brilliant hat trick from Ben Kelly. The number 9 was a constant thorn in the gallant Pats side. The opening was bright with chances especially for Nurney but rhe couldn't convert. Their wasteful shooting was then punished in quick concession by 2 great break away goals by summer doorley and Jamie cooney to leave St pats up by 2 at the break. The home side played into a strong wind in the second half but Kelly took the first of his goals early on to give them Hope. With Liam Murphy and conor phelan beginning to boss the game more and Danny Murphy in defence, nurney began to create more and it wasn't long before Kelly got his 2nd to equalise. St pats though didn't lie down and Mikey hand and the impressive Thomas lawlor began to get really involved. This pressure saw marcin pawlak finish brilliantly to give them the lead again. Not done, nurney replied soon after with Liam Murphy on target following good work by tadhg Doyle and Brandon searson. There were chances at both ends before man of the match Ben Kelly completed his hat trick past the excellent St pats custodian Liam Moran. A thrilling game and one that both teams can take great heart from going forward.
