Match Report

Torro needed a win to progress to the next stage of the Kilmessan shield and they achieved that with a superb performance in Powderly park on Sunday morning. Torro started well and were ahead early on when Mickey Duke coolly placed a side-footed effort in from almost 20 yards.

Torro added a second when Aaron Englishby found space in the box and finished well to the net. Trim Town had a few chances of their own but were kept scoreless by some good goalkeeping from the Torro keeper Dan Shields until about mid way through the half when a sloppy penalty was conceded and although the initial kick was saved, the follow up was converted making the score 2-1.

Torro continued to press and a quick break lead to a fine goal for Aaron Tolan after some good work by Will Gore in the set up.

Torro continued to dominate and produced numerous fine passing moves without finding an end result until about mid way through the second half when Colm Gilsenan got on the end of one such move and finished well from a Mickey Duke assist. Peadar Farrelly then added a fifth with a trademark free kick from outside the box.

Torro then got sloppy with their shape and game and Trim Town got one back but the margin was restored when Colm Gilsenan again pounced on a kick out from the Torro keeper that was allowed bounce and he lifted it over the advancing keeper.

A good controlled performance by Torro all round and best on the day included Gerry Murray, Aaron Tolan, Peadar Farrelly and Mickey Duke.

Team: Dan Shields, Shane O’Brien, Peter Carroll, Kevin Crowley, Gerry Murray, Mickey Duke, Aaron Tolan, Peadar Farrelly, Will Gore, Aaron Englishby, Evan Bird.
