Carniny played Greenisland in the league on a cold Saturday morning at Mallusk. Carniny found themselves two down just ten minutes into this match and was finding it hard to get a hold of this game in the early stages. With ten minutes to go in the first half Carniny pulled one back when Balmer sent Bailey Adams through on goal who coolly finished past the keeper. Carniny started to get a hold of the game in midfield with Lowry and Coulter seeing a lot more of the ball. Carniny could have levelled the score a minute later when McAuley was through on goal but the Greenisland keeper pulled off a brilliant save to keep the score 2-1. With just minutes to go in the first half Carniny levelled the score when a Dylan Johnston free kick found Leon Coulter at the back post who brilliantly lobbed the keeper from 8 yards.
Carniny started the second half as they finished the first seeing a lot more of the ball and within 12 minutes they took the lead, from a quick throw in, Bradley McAuley crossed to find Joshua Balmer who headed into the bottom corner 2-3. Carniny extended their lead with some nice one two football in midfield between Lowry and Balmer then with Balmer splitting the defence for Coulter to run onto the ball and finish with a chip over the keeper.
Final score 2-4.
This was a great team performance all round and especially after going two goals down.
