Match Report

Torro hosted Kells Blackwater and it was almost deja vu until the 59th minute, when Sean Barrett, the right full back calmly steered the ball past the Kells keeper, nailing all three points in the process. This followed great work by Hughes and Fox, and a deadly through ball from Oakes.
Torro had taken the game to Kells in the first half, creating numerous chances with Fox, Hughes and Joseph missing. Torro found the Kells keeper a thorn in their side, with excellent keeping that frustrated the hosts. Keeping things tight at back, Torro continued to blitz the Kells goal in the second half, with more missed chances that really should have been put away. Ryan, Hughes, Fox and Barrett all missed chances in front of goal.
But persistence, work rate and belief in what they were doing got their rewards in the dying minutes. This was excellent performance from the 12 man squad with keeper Shane McGuire injured, and young Jack Johnston stood in and did a great job.
Best for Torro were Boland, Barrett, Oakes, Smyth, Hughes and Blundell.
