Torro welcomed Ashbourne United to Powderly park for an eagerly anticipated return fixture, with the sides having drawn 1-1 some weeks ago in Ashbourne.The home side enjoyed the majority of the possession in the first half, and could have converted on several occasions only to be denied by the woodwork, good goalkeeping, and narrow wides.
Ashbourne then took the lead against the run of play, when a clever through ball left Torro keeper Eoin Clynch facing a one-on-one with the oncoming striker, who finished well.
The second half was similar to the first with Torro creating chance after chance, but again, unlucky not to be rewarded with at least an equaliser.
A positive performance from the lads, who move on to cup duty this weekend.
Torro United squad:
Eoin Clynch, Blake McGarry, Vincent Leonard, Jack Collier, Conor Harding, Tom Reilly, Ronan McHugh, Michael McMahon, Daragh Weldon, Cian Newman, Daniel Moran, Paddy Bellew, Andrew Crawford, Evan Curley.
