Carniny had a very slow start in this game and looked a shadow of the team that played so well last Saturday. They just couldn’t get a grip on the game in the early stages making for frustrating half that ended 0-0.
After a regrouping at the break they came out with new energy about them and opened the scoring eight minutes in when Shane McWilliams crossed in from the right from Adam Heron to net to give the visitors the lead. Seven minutes later it was substitute Barry Simpson who weaved his way through the defence to score after receiving from a Tyler McAuley cross who was causing all sorts of problems down the right flank for the home side.
Having taken the lead Carniny were then guilty of sitting back when they gave the ball outside their own box and saw a Templepatrick forward burst through the defence, taking his chance well to slot home and reduce the deficit. This was short lived however when the energetic pairing of McAuley and Simpson combined once again for the latter to score his second and Carniny’s third. Top goal scorer Scott Buxton then got in on the act when he burst in from the left to net Carniny’s fourth. McAuley then turned provider for Buxton to net again from close range. Both Simpson and Buxton had chances to complete their hat tricks in the closing stages both failing to convert.
A good result in the end, keeping the Carniny men in the hunt for an automatic promotion place.
