Emyvale Minors V Toome

On Tuesday, July 28th Emyvale Minors played Toome in the semi-final of the Division 2 Minor Championship 2015. The game was played at Tyholland and a small crowd turned out to support the teams. This was a very evenly matched game with plenty of youthful skill on display but it was the finishing skill of the Emyvale lads that made the difference. Emyvale were strong around the middle and most of the frees they got in the Toome half were sent over the bar from James's boot. Great scoring ability there. Robbie McAllister was a constant danger up front and scored some nice points as well. The Emyvale defence were solid for the most part but often took too much out of the ball and Toome forced a turn-around. Emyvale keeper had a couple of great saves. Toome had a great player in their number 8 and had he been left in the middle he could have changed the course of the game. The final score was 2 - 12 to 1 - 10 in Emyvale's favour and they now go forward to the final which will be against Corduff, I think. It would be nice that at semi-final stage a team list would be available to people who might want to name players.
