It may not be accurate to say the young Carniny development side deserved to win this game but they certainly didn't deserve to lose it conceding a penalty for an alleged foul in the penalty area and an unfortunate own goal from their young sweeper . It was generally a decent enough game and Old Boys took the lead from the penalty spot after 15 minutes and could have been two up when another penalty was awarded after the half hour only to be squandered. Carniny were looking sharp with Miechurski and Mooney causing problems in attack that made the visitors realise the game was not out of their reach. On 30 minutes Carniny drew level when Meichursky found Mooney and he found space to drive the home side onwards into the penalty box for Dubyna to head home.
The second period Carniny were well in the game and Greer. Lyness and Murray went close but it was too little much too late and unfortunately a speculative ball into the box was sliced by the Carniny defender to end up in the home goal.. Carniny look forward to their home game next Saturday against Greenisland.
