Castle Rangers 2

Nurney Villa 1

Castle got the better of arch rivals Nurney in this tough encounter in the Youth Centre on Sunday.

The home side started well and Chris Kearney had to make two good saves to keep the game scoreless. The visitors settled and Joe Byrne put a good chance wide while at the other end Gary Murphy hit the crossbar and Niall Davis went close. Just before the break Rangers made the breakthrough when Murphy scored with a superb strike from outside the box. However Nurney were level a minute later when Val Fleming capitalised on a defensive error to stab the ball home to level matters at the break.

It was an even enough second half but Murphy popped up again to secure the winner on 75 minutes. Nurney had chances and Brian Carroll had a goal bound effort cleared off the line by Lorcan Carroll to make sure of all three points for Rangers.

Best for Castle Dermot O’Boyle, Declan Donnelly and Caillin Canning while best for Nurney were Bill Fanning, Joe Byrne and Chris Kearney in goal.
